Sleep Apnea Treatment: What To Expect?

If you’ve not been sleeping well (or you think you have but for some reason, you are extremely tired every day), then it might be wise to talk with us about sleep apnea treatment. We know that you may not have realized you could address such an issue with your dental team but … surprise! As you become more familiar regarding the causes of sleep apnea, you’ll see that a visit with our practice may be just what you need to get your sleep under control and your daily life much more energized.

Expect A Conversation

First, we need to to find out more about what you’ve been experiencing. Perhaps your spouse has mentioned loud snoring and other noises you’re making throughout the night. You may have read up on sleep apnea only to find your experience matches most of the symptoms. Talking about what’s happening will help us determine whether you require sleep apnea treatment.

Expect An Exam

We will take a look at your oral structures for a better understanding of the way your tissues may be contributing to sleep apnea. Remember that when soft tissues obstruct your throat, you stop breathing as you sleep, which makes you wake up to gasp for air. In many instances, the use of an oral appliance will stop soft tissues from collapsing and blocking your throat. The result? You breathe and you sleep, rather than choking and waking up!

Expect Customized Care

Don’t overlook the fact that we don’t just toss a universal sleep apnea treatment your way and expect it to work. Instead, we will create a customized oral appliance (which is a mouthguard) that will do the work of ever-so-slightly holding your jaw in a new position as you sleep, so you breathe without a problem.
