Sleep Apnea Treatment
Treat your Sleep Apnea Today in Waterdown Smiles Dentistry
Do you usually wake at night, feeling short of breath and gasping? Does your partner usually tell you that you snore so loudly to sleep and don’t even notice this? Have you experienced onset of irritability, daytime sleepiness and forgetfulness? You might be experiencing a medical disorder called sleep Apnea.
Sleep Apnea is a medical condition experienced due to partial blocking of the upper airway as a result of tongue moving back to the throat or a different structure of the mouth or airway that partially blocks breathing, creating a loud snoring sound while sleeping. Apnea is a term that is defined as cessation or stopping of breathing. Most people don’t know this, but sleep Apnea is dangerous and may indicate underlying health problems.
What are the Symptoms of Sleep Apnea?
The possibility of experiencing sleep Apnea increases if you are experiencing morning headaches, memory and learning problems, depression, waking up multiple times at night to urinate, dry mouth and increased blood pressure.
Sleep Apnea increases the risk for major health problems such as cardiovascular problems that can be unfavourable to health.
Sleep Apnea and Dentistry
There has been a dental link attributed to the development and treatment of sleep Apnea that has been poorly understood in the past. Sleep Apnea is a medical problem that is dental-related, and most people ignore this fact. Most medical doctors underestimate the problem of sleep Apnea. These doctors refer patients to dentists for dental procedures that will alleviate and eliminate the onset of sleep Apnea and our Waterdown Smiles Dentistry sleep Apnea treatment has been known to address these problems.
What are the Possible Treatments for Sleep Apnea?
There are multiple treatment options to address sleep Apnea and these include, a CPAP machine that opens the airway by introducing air, oral surgery that changes the structure of the oral cavity to permit efficient air exchange and a dental appliance that brings the lower jaw and the tongue forward to prevent airway blockage. Sleep Apnea treatment has been renowned for its safety, effectiveness and affordability, explaining why thousands of patients have sought our care.
It is important to determine the cause of your sleep Apnea and to do this; our doctors will require you to undergo a series of diagnostic test and physical exam. Upon the establishment of your sleep Apnea, we will give you safe alternative and treatment options to address the problem.
What is the Usual Remedy for Sleep Apnea?
Most patients with sleep Apnea benefit greatly from the application of dental appliance alone. Our sleep Apnea treatment offers several types of oral appliances that best fits this purpose. These are usually in the form of a mouth-guard that is fitted in your mouth while sleeping. Because of the top of the line materials, the oral appliance fits comfortably without the “bulk” feeling inside your mouth. This should not cause you any discomfort, and you will be able to move your jaw freely.
Our dentists will give factual information that will assist you throughout the procedure. Equipped with quality equipment and medical instruments, our sleep Apnea treatment addresses and targets your problem according to your individual needs.
