Are you in need of 11746 sleep apnea treatment?
When it comes to sleeping, it’s not just how many hours you slept that determines if you got a full night’s rest; the way you breathe while asleep is a factor as well. Sleep apnea is a serious and life-threatening condition that is shared by tens of millions of people in the US alone. The most common form, obstructive sleep apnea causes the cessation of breathing numerous times, in some cases hundreds of times a night, ranging from just a few seconds to more than a minute in length. If you don’t feel refreshed after a full night’s rest or you’re experiencing symptoms such as excessive daytime fatigue, headaches, or difficulty concentrating, you should visit the office of Dentistry by Design to learn more about our 11746 sleep apnea treatment plan.
Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when the soft tissue in the throat and mouth relax during sleep, to the point they slump back, causing a blockage of the airway. Symptoms that would be noticeable while the sufferer is asleep include: loud of frequent snoring, episodes of breathing cessation or gasping for air, and abrupt awakenings. These episodes of breathing cessation can result in micro-sleep which is when your night’s rest is broken up into such short periods of time that you do not receive the amount of deep, REM sleep necessary to feel refreshed the next day. At Dentistry by Design, our skilled dental team will be glad to help you overcome your 11746 sleep apnea with our extensive selection of treatment options. In most cases, the recommended course of treatment is the wearing of a custom fabricated oral appliance while asleep. Similar to a mouth guard, this retainer will keep the tongue and sort tissues in the back of the throat from blocking the airway.
