Dental Appliances for Sleep Apnea
Sleep apnea is a serious medical disorder that can have serious health consequences if left untreated. It is estimated that over 18 million Americans suffer from sleep apnea, and many of them are unaware that they have the condition. Thankfully, there are dental appliances available to help those with sleep apnea enjoy a better night's sleep and improve their overall health and well-being. Mountain View Dental Sleep Center uses dental appliances for sleep apnea in addition to the expertise of Dr. Bana Hosseinian, who is Board Certified with the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine and Board Certified with the American Board of Orthodontics. Let Dr. H and her staff help you get better sleep and the health benefits that accompany it.
Who Might Benefit from a Dental Appliance for Sleep Apnea?
Those who suffer from mild to moderate sleep apnea, or those with a partner who is bothered by snoring, could also benefit from a dental appliance for sleep apnea. This type of device is designed to help keep the airways open during sleep, which can reduce the severity of sleep apnea and the associated symptoms. Additionally, it can help minimize snoring, allowing both the sleep apnea sufferer and their partner to get a more restful night’s sleep. Those who are looking for a more comfortable, non-invasive sleep apnea treatment option should consider a dental appliance for sleep apnea. You may not need to suffer the discomfort of a CPAP machine if you can be treated with a dental appliance.
How Does Oral Appliance Therapy Work to Treat Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)?
Oral appliance therapy is a non-invasive treatment for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). It works by positioning the lower jaw slightly forward, which keeps the airway open throughout the night. Oral appliance therapy works for mild to moderate cases of OSA, and is usually the first line of treatment prescribed by a doctor. Patients who suffer from severe OSA may require additional treatments in addition to oral appliance therapy. The appliance is custom-made for each patient and is designed to be comfortable and easy to use. With regular use, oral appliance therapy can reduce snoring and improve the quality of sleep.
