Sleep Apnea

Do you constantly feel drowsy even after a full night of sleep? This is one of the main symptoms of a condition referred to as sleep apnea. Sleep apnea deprives you of the sleep that you need. When you have sleep apnea, your air passages become blocked while you sleep, making it difficult to breathe. This can be caused by the position of the tongue or jaw when you sleep. When you have trouble breathing at night, it can not only cause you to wake up gasping for breath but also put you at risk for other symptoms as well.

Symptoms of sleep apnea can include:
  • Loud snoring
  • Waking gasping for air
  • Dry mouth
  • Morning headaches
  • Trouble staying asleep at night
  • Drowsiness throughout the day
  • Moodiness
  • Trouble focusing

Treatment

Imagine getting a full night of rest! Get the rest that you need to help you feel good and have a productive day. To combat sleep apnea, we offer an oral sleep appliance that can reposition your tongue and jaw, opening your airways while you sleep and allowing you to get a full night of rest. If you are looking for a replacement for your CPAP machine, an oral appliance may be a good alternative.
