A dream come true for Sleep Apnea sufferers. – Smart Smile Dentistry

Treatment options for obstructive sleep apnea.

There could be more to that snore! Many people are unaware of a sleep disorder known as Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). We’re here to help you get started, answer any questions and make sure you get the best benefits out of your Dental Sleep Apnea Therapy.

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) affects millions of Americans and is estimated to be as prevalent as asthma and diabetes. Given the fact that obesity is a major risk factor for obstructive sleep apnea, and given the current global rise in obesity, the prevalence of OSA will increase in the future.

Individuals with Sleep Apnea are often unaware of their sleep disorder. It is usually first recognized as a problem by family members who witness snoring episodes or a primary care doctor because of the individual’s risk factors and symptoms. The vast majority remains undiagnosed and untreated, despite the fact that this serious disorder can have significant consequences.

Individuals with untreated OSA can stop breathing hundreds of times a night during their sleep. These apneic events can lead to fragmented sleep that is of poor quality, as the brain arouses briefly in order for the body to resume breathing.

Untreated, Sleep Apnea can have dire health consequences and can increase the risk of hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, and heart failure.

OSA management has also become important in a number of neurological conditions, including epilepsy, stroke, multiple sclerosis, and headache.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea diagnosis typically involves use of screening questionnaires, physical exam, and an overnight polysomnography or a portable home study. Treatment options available are CPAP (continuous positive air pressure) and Dental Oral Appliance Therapy.

Oral Sleep Apnea Appliances are custom fitted dental devices designed by sleep apnea trained dentist. They are used in mild to moderate sleep apnea and with CPAP intolerant patients.
