What Is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea refers to the disruption of breathing during sleep and is often accompanied with heavy snoring, cessations in breathing, and daytime fatigue. Interruptions to breathing greater than 10 seconds can cause the oxygen levels in the blood to significantly drop, affecting everything from the health of your heart to your risk for diabetes, depression, and strokes. Treating sleep apnea is crucial to your health, and this treatment can oftentimes be accomplished with removable oral appliances. We do not treat sleep apnea in our office, but we provide home sleep screenings and work closely with an experienced ear, nose, and throat specialist who can evaluate and diagnose your condition. If you have sleep apnea, we create custom oral appliances for mild to moderate cases.

Symptoms of Sleep Apnea

  • Heavy snoring
  • Wake gasping for breath
  • Excessive daytime sleepiness
  • Chronic headaches
  • Mood swings
  • Depression

Personalized Sleep Apnea Care

A diagnosis of sleep apnea means that air transferred when you breathe during sleep is being temporarily, but repeatedly blocked. This is often due to the relaxation of muscles in the throat and tongue, which can fall back when the lower jaw slackens during sleep and block the upper airway. Custom oral appliances used to treat sleep apnea keep the jaw in a more forward position so that the airway remains unobstructed. Oral appliances help reduce or eliminate snoring and promote a better night’s sleep by allowing you to breathe normally, without any interruptions. Since sleep is such a vital part of how well people function during the day, receiving deep and restful sleep can dramatically improve your mood, energy levels, alertness, and overall quality of life.
