We Offer Simple, Effective Relief For Sleep Apnea
Here’s how sleep apnea occurs:
- The tongue and other soft tissues in the back of your throat relax and drop down during sleep.
- Your airway becomes blocked off.
- Your brain causes your body to wake up and take in more air oxygen.
- This cycle can repeat itself hundreds of times per night in severe sleep apnea sufferers.
While CPAP therapy works well for many sleep apnea patients, others have difficulty getting used to wearing a bulky mask. As an alternative, Dr. Planer can use a custom-fit oral device to alleviate the symptoms of sleep apnea so you get the high-quality sleep you need to function better during the day.
Our device will sit comfortably in your mouth, exerting gentle pressure on your lower jaw to help keep your airway open during sleep. The result of our treatment is that you’ll breathe easier and your sleep will be less interrupted.
With proper sleep apnea treatment, you’ll also reduce your risk of developing serious health consequences. Obstructive sleep apnea has been linked to:
- High blood pressure
- Heart attacks
Seeking treatment as soon as possible could improve your quality of life now and down the road.
As a bonus, your snoring will be reduced as well. Since snoring is caused by air passing across those soft tissues in your throat, an open airway will lead to less snoring. Both you and your bed partner will be pleased with a silent night of sleep!
