What Is Sleep Apnea Treatment?
Sleep apnea is one of the most common sleep-related disorders in the world. The disorder occurs when there is an obstruction to the airway during sleep, preventing the person from breathing easily and properly throughout the night. This prevents the patient from going into a deep sleep and causes them to wake up at regular intervals throughout the night. We offer dental treatment for your sleep apnea, which involves wearing a simple oral appliance each night.
Why is Sleep Apnea Treatment Needed?
The reason it’s important to treat your sleep apnea is that the condition can be detrimental to your health and overall well-being. By not getting a good night of rest each night, you’ll feel exhausted throughout your waking hours, may not have the ability to do daily activities, and may find it difficult to manage your health otherwise. If you’ve had a CPAP machine that you were dissatisfied with in the past, dental appliances are easier and more comfortable to use to treat your sleep apnea.
