By now you are probably aware of the fact if you snore or not. What many people do not know, however, is that chronic snoring can actually be indicative of something more serious such as sleep apnea. With that in mind, most are unaware that treatment can be sought to address this phenomenon to not only help you benefit from a more restful night, but can ideally correct your sleeping disorder. Fortunately, your Greenville, TX dentist at Dental Sleep Solutions of Greenville may just have the custom appliance you need to help you achieve a great night of sleep.
A Custom Appliance
One of the main methods that has been utilized to help patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a CPAP machine, or continuous positive airway pressure machine. A CPAP machine is connected to a mask that an individual would wear while sleeping in order to provide a steady stream of air through that helps keep your breathing consistent throughout the night. It also stops tissues from obstructing your airway, thus preventing OSA from interrupting your sleep. While it is an effective measure for doing so, it is not necessarily the most comfortable, which is why you may benefit from a custom appliance.
A custom sleep appliance offers support for your lower jaw in order to prevent oral tissues from collapsing in your airway. Not only this, but your appliance will be custom-created and tailored for you in order to provide the most comfort while also providing support. Utilizing advanced dental technology, we are able to provide the best fit for you and your unique needs. Contact our office today to learn more.
Correcting Your Breathing
When an individual experiencing OSA, what is occurring is the periodic stopping and starting of breathing due to relaxed throat muscles and tissues obstructing your airway. When left unaddressed, it can have a myriad of negative effects such as daytime sleepiness, irritability, difficulties staying asleep at night, morning headaches, and more. By utilizing a custom appliance, your regular schedule can be restored and you will awaken feeling refreshed.
Once your OSA has been addressed, you should be able to receive a full night’s rest and wake up feeling refreshed in the morning. Moreover, you will not have to endure the negative affects of a restless night. Contact our office today to learn more.
