What Is Sleep Apnea?

An estimated 18 million Americans suffer from sleep apnea. People with this disorder will periodically stop breathing while asleep. Each interruption disrupts sleep since the brain needs to wake the body up so that breathing can resume. The most common cause of sleep apnea is a physical obstruction of the airway, usually due to the tissues in your mouth or throat collapsing during the night. Being overweight, being male, and being over the age of 50 are all common risk factors for the disorder.

If you’ve already tried CPAP therapy and are looking for an alternative, you may want to consider a customized oral appliance. The device helps you maintain a clear airway while you’re asleep so that sleep apnea episodes are less likely to occur. Our practice offers EMA, Prosomnus, and Somnomed oral appliances; when you come in for a consultation, we can explain what makes each brand different and which one best fits your situation.


Partnered with Sleep Physicians

It goes without saying that you can only pursue treatment for sleep apnea once you have been formally diagnosed with the disorder. This means you’ll need to have a sleep test performed. A sleep physician can take a look at the results of the test and determine whether you have sleep apnea and how severe it is. Once your sleep physician has explained their findings, our team can move forward with changing your life for the better with a well-designed oral appliance.
