Bid goodbye to sleepless nights with personalized treatments for snoring and sleep apnea
Do you sleep soundly at night? You can thank the “sleeping gods” because some people don’t have the luxury of a good night’s sleep. When you sleep, the muscles at the back of your mouth, tongue, and throat may relax enough that they vibrate, causing you to snore. As a result, you may continuously wake yourself or your partner at night, leading to poor sleeping patterns.
While you may not pay too much attention to snoring, sometimes it can be a symptom of a more severe condition called sleep apnea. Fortunately, at Adams Dental Associates, we offer effective treatments for sleep apnea and snoring.
Sleep apnea is more than snoring
Sleep apnea is a severe sleep disorder that results in disrupted breathing when sleeping. If you have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), the breathing muscles at the back of your mouth collapse and inhibit your breathing momentarily. You may not even notice it, but you can get hundreds of these episodes in one night!
On the other hand, if you have central sleep apnea (CSA), your brain fails to send the right signals to your breathing muscles, causing frequent stoppages in your breathing. If left untreated, sleep apnea may lead to a host of health complications, including:
- Heart disease
- Type 2 diabetes
How we treat sleep apnea
Sleep apnea and snoring can deprive your body of much-needed sleep and rest. Luckily, Dr. Kosta Adams can alleviate those sleepless nights. While most medical practitioners administer CPAPs to treat sleep apnea and snoring, many patients find them bulky and uncomfortable.
With this in mind, we offer a dental device to curb your snoring and sleep apnea problems. Our custom-made oral appliance pushes your jaws and tongue forward, opening your airways when sleeping.
