Obstructive sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder, which can lead to life-threatening consequences, if left untreated. At Atrium Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, we provide customized oral appliance therapy to help treat 90630 sleep apnea
. With our personalized approach to treatment, we can improve your overall health and sense of wellbeing.
When you sleep, all the muscles in your body relax, including the muscles at the back of your throat. If you have obstructive sleep apnea, the muscles in the throat not only relax, but collapse completely, causing a blockage of airflow. Sleep apnea is diagnosed with a sleep study, which allows a medical professional to observe your symptoms while you’re at rest. Common symptoms of sleep apnea include heavy snoring, pausing or ceasing to breathe, gasping for breath and waking up abruptly. Due to the disturbance in your normal sleep cycle, you may experience daytime symptoms such as fatigue, headaches and difficulty concentrating. Working with your medical team, our dentist can also provide a customized oral appliance, which can effectively treat certain cases of mild to moderate obstructive 96030 sleep apnea. The oral appliance fits over your top and bottom teeth like a retainer, keeping your jaw open, in a slightly forward position, which allows air to pass through more easily. Our oral appliances are comfortable, portable and easy to clean. We’ll take the time to guide you on how to properly wear and care for your oral appliance, for the most effective treatment outcome.
At Atrium Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, we can help you get the full night of uninterrupted sleep you deserve, with 96030 sleep apnea
oral appliance therapy. We’re happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have regarding treatment for sleep apnea or any services we provide. To learn more about our office, or to schedule an appointment, give us a call today.
