A full night of uninterrupted sleep is vital to your health and sense of wellbeing, but if you are living with obstructive sleep apnea, it may be difficult to get the quality sleep you need. Fortunately, with the care of our 91311 sleep apnea dentist, we can treat mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea with customized oral appliance therapy. At Aesthetic Smile Designs, our experienced, compassionate dentist is committed to providing you with relief from this serious sleep disorder.
Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when the airway at the back of the throat becomes blocked during sleep, making it difficult to breathe. For an accurate diagnosis, your physician will conduct a sleep study, to observe your symptoms while you’re at rest. People with sleep apnea may experience heavy snoring, waking up abruptly, pausing or ceasing to breathe and gasping for air. Because sleep apnea makes it difficult to get a full night’s rest, you may also experience headaches, fatigue and difficulty concentrating throughout your day. In cases of mild to moderate 91311 sleep apnea, oral appliance therapy may be recommended as an alternative to a CPAP machine. At Aesthetic Smile Designs, our dentist designs your customized oral appliance for a comfortable, precise fit and effective results. The appliance fits over your top and bottom teeth, like a retainer, keeping your jaw in a slightly forward position, which allows air to pass through more easily. Our experienced dentist and office team will answer any questions you have regarding treatment and will teach you how to properly wear and care for your oral appliance.
At Aesthetic Smile Designs, we provide advanced solutions to improve your oral and overall health. If you have 91311 sleep apnea, visit our office to find out if oral appliance therapy can help. To learn more about obstructive sleep apnea or to schedule an appointment, call today.
