Sleep Apnea

Sleep Apnea

One of the most common issues patients face in terms of losing sleep or excessive snoring is sleep apnea, which occurs when the airways are restricted during sleep. This condition is often caused by slight misalignments in your jaw that cause the airway to close. This constriction of the airway can lead to loud snoring, coughing, excessive phlegm, loss of sleep, and even choking. Depending on the severity and nature of your sleep apnea, your dentist will recommend an assistive device after an examination.

Correction

Most cases of sleep apnea are treated using a special mouth guard designed to keep the airway open by positioning the jaw correctly. This allows the patient to breathe normally and not have to worry about losing sleep. Because sleep apnea can cause loss of sleep, other health systems can be affected.

Sleep Apnea Can Cause:

  • Snoring
  • Headaches
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Stroke Risk
  • Diabetic Risk
  • Loss of Sleep
