What is Sleep Apnea?
Having sleep apnea means your breathing is repeatedly being halted while you sleep. In most cases, this is because soft tissues in your mouth or throat are partially or fully blocking the airway. The lack of air causes the body to wake up briefly; you may not realize this is happening, but the brief awakening is still enough to completely disrupt the sleep cycle. If you sleep with a partner, they may notice your sleep apnea before you do, as the condition is normally accompanied by snoring.
How We Treat Sleep Apnea
We offer oral appliances for treating sleep apnea. You can consider an oral appliance as an alternative to a noisy, uncomfortable CPAP machine. We can provide TAP and Silent Nite oral appliances that gently shift the lower jaw forward while you’re asleep. This helps open your airway and ensures that it won’t collapse during the night. Both kinds of oral appliances are known to be effective at reducing snoring and other sleep apnea symptoms.
