What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea affects about 22 million Americans overall, but the condition is still unfamiliar to most people, even for some who are struggling with it! People with sleep apnea experience brief but frequent lapses in breathing during the night, which fractures the sleep cycle over and over again. It prevents someone from getting the quality rest they need, plus it puts a lot of stress on the body and mind, which can negatively affect overall health. For most, this occurs because the soft tissues in the mouth and throat over-relax and block the airway, which is actually called obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
Common Sleep Apnea Symptoms
- Loud, persistent snoring
- Chronic daytime exhaustion despite the amount of sleep
- Mood swings/depression
- Morning headaches/sore throats
- Waking up throughout the night gasping for breath
- Weight gain
How We Can Help
The most commonly prescribed treatment for sleep apnea is CPAP therapy, in which a patient literally wears a mask connected to an air pump that keeps the airway open by continually forcing oxygen down the throat. While effective, many patients find this extremely uncomfortable. However, there is an alternative we can provide here at Beach Dental called oral appliance therapy.
With this approach, a patient simply wears a custom-made mouthpiece to bed every night. It slightly adjusts the lower jaw forward, and this prevents the airway from collapsing. It can help patients overcome sleep apnea symptoms, and this type of appliance can even help someone stop snoring almost immediately.
