Getting enough sleep every night is an important part of your wellbeing, but for some patients, it isn’t always achievable. For example, patients with obstructive sleep apnea, or OSA, can experience constant disruptions to their sleep cycles without realizing, and that constant sleep loss can have seriously detrimental effects on their overall health. At our Southlake, TX, dental office, we offer customizable appliances to address sleep apnea so that patients can once again achieve the restful, peaceful sleep that they need.
Why are you losing sleep?
Sleep apnea is a menace because it causes you to stop breathing in your sleep. The condition occurs when mouth and throat tissues clog your airway, which forces your body to wake from its rest so that it can breathe again. You might not be conscious of the interruption, but it interrupts your mind’s and body’s drift toward rapid eye movement (R.E.M.) sleep, which they need to rest properly and recover from the stress of the day.
Could an appliance help?
If you experience sleep apnea, then we may be able to help you stop it with a custom-designed sleep apnea appliance. It’s designed to keep your airway clear by offering comfortable support for your lower jaw, allowing you to sleep soundly throughout the night without allowing your airway to become clogged.
What benefits can you expect?
With a custom sleep appliance, you can remove the main obstruction to your restful sleep, which means you can alleviate the symptoms of the condition. These include increasing daytime fatigue, irritability, mood swings, trouble remembering things, and more. Also, the appliance can offer a more comfortable alternative for patients who currently rely on a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine.
