The most common type of sleep apnea is obstructive sleep apnea. In this condition, the airway collapses or becomes blocked during sleep. This condition can increase patients risk of high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, obesity, and diabetes.
SLEEP APNEA TREATMENT
Most people that don't realize one of the most common causes of sleep apnea and snoring originates in the mouth. Oral appliances are available to treat both sleep apnea and snoring.
How can dental care treat your sleep apnea?
Sleep apnea can be treated with oral appliances. The oral appliances we carry help to reposition the lower jaw and tongue, permitting the airway to open properly. Oral appliances are a less invasive option than CPAP therapy.
This treatment normally helps to resolve issues for patients with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea and snoring issues. Call Dr Kudwa today to schedule your initial sleep appliance consultation today!! New Patients are always welcome.
