Improve Your Life With Sleep Apnea Treatment

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), which is the most common type of this disorder, robs you of your sleep, leaving you feeling drained and depleted throughout the day. Even worse, this condition can contribute to severe health concerns such as high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, and depression. Getting help for your sleep apnea symptoms can improve your health in many ways.

With our sleep apnea treatment, your dentist will work with a local physician to get you a diagnosis. Then we will fit you for a professional oral appliance. It will:

  • Fit comfortably in your mouth while you sleep to gently move your lower jaw forward
  • Help keep your tongue and other soft tissues in the back of your throat from closing off your airway and causing episodes of sleep apnea
  • Work without noise or a distracting mask, unlike a CPAP

The result is more restful, continuous sleep. You’ll feel alert and ready to face the day when you wake up in the morning. Since snoring is caused by air passing over those soft tissues in your throat, with our treatment you’ll snore less or perhaps not at all. Both you and your bed partner will be thankful for that!

Call Lopez Dental Associates today at 580-246-4488 to get help for your Lawton sleep apnea. You can also make an appointment online. Go ahead and schedule your next dental cleaning and exam, too!

Common Questions About Sleep Apnea
What is sleep apnea?

Sleep apnea occurs when you repeatedly stop breathing while sleeping. It is caused by your air passages becoming blocked by your tongue and other soft tissues in the back of your throat. When they block your airway, you stop breathing for a few seconds before waking up briefly to take in more air. The sleep apnea cycle can repeat itself hundreds of times per night in severe sleep apnea sufferers.

Why is sleep apnea bad?

Sleep apnea can greatly affect the quality of your sleep, leaving you drained and exhausted during your workday. Sleep apnea has also been linked to serious health conditions like high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes, and diabetes. Getting help for your sleep apnea now can improve your quality of life as well as your life span.

How is sleep apnea treated?

CPAP therapy is often the first recommended treatment for sleep apnea. While CPAP is effective, many people have trouble getting used to having air blown through their mouth and nose. A good alternative treatment option is a custom-fit sleep appliance. It will fit comfortably in your mouth while you sleep, gently moving your lower jaw forward to keep your air passages open.
