Feel Rested & Refreshed With Sleep Apnea Treatment

Our team at Sabal Dental wants to help you find rest and relief from miserable sleep apnea symptoms with a custom oral appliance. It fits like a mouthguard and keeps your lower jaw in a better position to allow air to flow freely through your breathing passages while you sleep.

This simple device is an effective solution for obstructive sleep apnea, the most common type of apnea, where relaxed muscles in the back of your throat temporarily block your air passages as you sleep. If you’re a sufferer of OSA, you will wake repeatedly throughout the night, hundreds of times in many cases, fighting for air until normal breathing resumes.

It’s no surprise, then, why you might experience other debilitating symptoms in addition to restless sleep, like:

  • Sore throat or dry mouth in the mornings
  • Morning headaches
  • Inexplicable weight gain
  • Moodiness, irritability, or depression
  • Daytime fatigue
  • Poor memory and concentration
  • Distractibility and more accident prone

Our custom oral appliance can also reduce, or end altogether, your persistent loud snoring, which is often one of the first signs of this sleep disorder. This form of treatment also relieves any pressure being put on your jaw and prevents you from grinding your teeth, which can create oral health problems that require restorative dental care.

If necessary, we’re happy to refer you to a physician for a sleep study to see if a CPAP machine is a more beneficial treatment for you. Regardless, we’re here to help you start sleeping more soundly soon!

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?

Not only will sleep apnea disrupt your sleep to the point that you feel fatigued and are unable to concentrate during the day, but this condition has also been linked to several other serious health problems. Sleep apnea can play a role in high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, and depression. Treating your sleep apnea now will improve your quality of life and potentially help you live longer.

How is sleep apnea treated?

Sufferers of severe sleep apnea may need a CPAP machine that blows a continuous stream of air through the nose or mouth to keep the airway open. For mild to moderate sleep apnea, we can fit you with a custom oral appliance that will gently move your lower jaw forward to keep your airway unobstructed. Many people have benefited from this type of treatment.
