Sleep Apnea Treatment: No CPAP Required
When you suffer from sleep apnea, it can be impossible to get a good night’s rest for both you and your sleeping partner. Maybe having a sleep study done and wearing a mask over your face at night isn’t an appealing solution for you. This method can also be quite costly. Dream Dentist in O'Fallon, IL has a reliable, wallet-friendly alternative for your sleep apnea woes.
What Causes Sleep Apnea?
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is caused by the airway being blocked off during sleep - causing you to stop breathing. In some individuals, the soft tissue in the roof of the mouth relaxes and blocks the airway in the back of the throat. The tongue, tonsils, uvula, and other anatomy can also cause an oxygen flow problem.
As a result of your airway being blocked, you stop breathing regularly during sleep, and constantly wake yourself up - meaning your quality of sleep is very poor.
Custom Appliances for Sleep Apnea
Made from acrylic, our sleep apnea devices are custom appliances that fit over your teeth; there is a set for each arch. The trays are connected via a band that allows for the bottom arch to be protruded forward, opening the airway and allowing you to breathe correctly all night long.
