Treat Your Sleep Disorder and Stop Snoring

Your airway becomes restricted as you sleep when you have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). This can be because you have a narrow airway, because soft tissues relax and create a blockage, or both. Your body responds to this by waking you up dozens of times per hour and up to hundreds of times each night. One of the most common signs of this condition is loud and persistent snoring, which your family will likely complain about.

This can leave you feeling sleep-deprived, which makes you more irritable and increases your risk of being in an automobile collision. Untreated OSA can affect your general health, too. People with this sleep disorder are more likely to have high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, heart attacks, and strokes.

To get relief, you need to find a way to keep your airway open. One option is getting a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine. This can be effective if you use it. For many people, this is a problem because you have to wear a mask, which can be uncomfortable, while you sleep. The air pressure and the sound of the machine also can make it difficult for you and your partner to fall asleep.

As an alternative, we can make a special oral appliance for you. This is custom-made for your mouth. It works by slightly moving your jaw forward. This opens up your airway, so you can breathe easier. This prevents snoring and allows you to sleep deeper and longer.

Common Questions About Sleep Apnea

What is sleep apnea?

Obstructive sleep apnea is the most common type of sleep apnea. It occurs when your tongue and other soft tissues in the back of your throat temporarily block your airway during sleep. They relax enough to cut off your air supply and cause you to quit breathing. You’ll wake up long enough to take a few normal breaths before you fall back asleep. This cycle can repeat itself dozens of times an hour.

Why is sleep apnea bad?

One common result of sleep apnea is excessive fatigue during the day. This makes it tough to concentrate or focus on tasks. Studies have linked it to sleepiness while driving, which can obviously be dangerous. In addition, research shows that sleep apnea leads to increased incidence of high blood pressure, diabetes, and other health problems.

How is sleep apnea treated?

If you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea, your dentist here at Naples Dental Professionals can have a custom oral appliance made for you to wear while you sleep. It will fit comfortably in your mouth and move your lower jaw gently forward to help keep your airway open. The appliance will improve your quality of sleep and help reduce noisy snoring.
