Treatment for Obstructive Sleep Apnea
~ finally you can rest at ease ~
Not everyone with sleeping trouble has TMD or grinds their teeth. Many people suffer from Sleep Apnea, a condition where breathing momentarily stops during sleep, which, unless you're a sleep-snorkeler, is not something you want to be doing. Though there are some with Central Sleep Apnea where the brain is at fault for the pause in breathing, the most common form of Sleep Apnea is Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) in which the drive to breathe is there, but the tongue or constricted throat is blocking the air from getting through.
Traditionally, treatment for OSA begins with your primary care doctor and a CPAP machine that pushes air through your airway once the device is strapped onto your face. Many people are frustrated by this approach and look for different ways to keep the airway open for proper breathing, which is where we come in. We can work closely with your doctor and sleep experts to provide alternate ways to help treat your OSA. We can offer a variety of oral appliances that when worn help to keep the airway open for proper breathing and a great night's sleep. Sounds like a dream come true, right?
