Do you find yourself struggling to get a restorative night’s rest? If you sleep throughout the
night but wake up feeling unrefreshed, you may be among the millions across the nation who
suffer from obstructive sleep apnea. 11040 sleep apnea is a chronic condition, which disrupts
your natural sleeping patterns, making it difficult to get a restorative night’s rest. If you’ve been
experiencing chronic fatigue, abrupt awakenings throughout the night, loud or frequent
snoring, it’s best to have yourself evaluated for sleep apnea. At Park One Dental, our
experienced dentists provide a comprehensive range of advanced dental treatments, from the
foremost options in implant and cosmetic dentistry, to the highest quality emergency care and
dental sleep medicine.
Understanding the nuts and bolts behind obstructive 11040 sleep apnea makes it easier to see why your dentist can provide you with your treatment. With mild to moderate cases of
obstructive sleep apnea, the soft tissues of the mouth and throat slacken to the point of
obstructing the airway while you sleep. The result? Typically, loud and frequent snoring.
Snoring generally occurs as the soft tissues of the throat vibrate with the passage of air. But this isn’t regular snoring; with obstructive sleep apnea, the partial or temporary obstruction of the airway interrupts the flow of oxygen to the brain, resulting in a variety of symptoms, from difficulty concentrating, and irritability, to memory loss, and daytime fatigue. If you have mild to moderate sleep apnea, your dentist can customize an oral appliance that fits in your mouth like a retainer to wear while you sleep. Custom contoured to the crests and grooves of your smile, sleep apnea appliances act by comfortably supporting your jaw in a forward position,safely opening your airway throughout the night.
If you believe that you’re suffering from the effects of 11040 sleep apnea, meeting with your
dentist sooner rather than later can make all the difference. To learn more about how the
