The American Sleep Apnea Association estimated that roughly 22 million Americans have some sleep apnea. Many people don’t realize how dangerous sleep apnea can be. The common type arises when a person’s airway is blocked, causing normal breathing to halt and start severally during sleep. It is known as obstructive sleep apnea.
At Lakeside Dental Solutions, we help patients who suffer from this disorder by providing custom-fitting oral appliances. Our dentists in Rockwall, TX will examine and diagnose you to see if oral appliance therapy is the best approach to treating your sleep apnea.
Untreated sleep apnea has been connected to stroke, hypertension, and cardiomyopathy or enlargement of your heart tissue muscle. Additionally, your sleep apnea could result in work-related accidents, motor vehicle crashes, and job impairment because you feel exhausted due to insufficient sleep. The frequent awakening as you gasp for air to restore breathing in a sleep apnea attack makes you not sleep adequately.
Our dental clinic specializes in providing oral appliance therapy. It is a viable, non-surgical alternative to the CPAP machine and helps treat obstructive sleep apnea and snoring. Our dentists in Rockwall, TX are dedicated to helping you enjoy the quality and restorative sleep you need for a healthy, productive, and happy life.
We customize the oral appliance to work effectively and perfectly for your mouth. Our dentists obtain mouth impressions as a model for fabricating your oral device.
Patients with moderate or mild obstructive sleep apnea can benefit from oral appliance therapy. The device prevents a person’s tongue from coming in the way of airflow and blocking the throat. It can also work by advancing or moving the lower jaw forward to keep the airway open and allow easier breathing.
