sleephappyHave you been thinking about visiting us to discuss sleep apnea treatment but you are not sure you even have sleep apnea? Do you think that this sleeping disorder is similar to snoring, so you aren’t really worried about any long-term problems? If so, we suggest you learn a little bit more about what makes treatment so essential. You may be surprised by the significant effect consistently interrupted nightly sleep can have on your quality of life, both in the present moment and the future.

Sleep Apnea Treatment

The good news is that for the most part, we suggest oral appliance therapy as a form of sleep apnea treatment. This means you will wear an appliance – or device like a mouth guard – in your mouth. The goal of treatment is to modify the way your soft oral and throat tissues are positioned to promote the easy, consistent passage of air. Fortunately, you will not need to take medicines or experience invasive treatment to address your sleeping disorder.

Why It’s Important

Sleep apnea treatment is extremely beneficial to patients for a number of reasons. First, it will allow you to sleep through the night, which means you can wake feeling refreshed, rested, and you will recover the energy you have been missing. In addition, resolving your sleep apnea will promote overall health, which means you can avoid common types of related health issues, including cardiac issues, liver problems, high blood pressure, headaches, sore throats, and dry mouth. Speak with us right away if you think sleep apnea may be disrupting your sleep.
