Obstructive Sleep Apnea Is the Most Common Type of Sleep Apnea.

This happens when the airway closes and breathing stops for over 10 seconds.

Why Is Sleep Apnea a Concern?
Interruptions in breathing patterns and lack of oxygen can cause larger issues, such as:

  • Heart disease
  • Depression
  • High blood pressure
  • Pre-diabetes and diabetes
  • Stroke

How to Treat Sleep Apnea
Sleep apnea can be treated in many different ways, some more invasive than others. Some patients undergo surgery, which help open up the airway. However, this can have limited success and be costly, painful and even dangerous. We offer less invasive ways to treat sleep apnea, such as oral appliances. They are worn during the night and are a less bulky alternative to CPAP devices and facemasks. They are similar to the appliances made for nightly teeth grinding and clenching. The magic of a good night’s sleep can help anybody get back to feeling themselves. But with the nighttime breathing disturbances that come from sleep apnea, a great night’s sleep can be far and few between.
