What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?
Obstructive sleep apnea is a sleep disorder where the airway continuously collapses and re-opens while a patient is asleep. Patients with obstructive sleep apnea can wake up hundreds of times during the night without realizing it, and wake up tired even if they had a full eight hours of rest. Sleep apnea deprives the brain of oxygen that it needs and can lead to other problems if it is left untreated. Sleep apnea can also affect your partner’s rest, because sleep apnea is often characterized by loud, disruptive snoring.
The Benefits of Sleep Apnea Treatment
- Patients get a better night’s rest, and are able to enter the sleep state they need to experience full rejuvenation.
- With sleep apnea treatment, your partner or significant other will be able to sleep better, because sleep apnea treatment can stop snoring.
- Patients will be able to wake up with more energy, and enjoy greater productivity and success in their day to day life.
Sleep Apnea Treatment from Columbia Center for Dentistry
Each patient at our practice is unique, and we tailor each sleep apnea treatment to the patient. When you come to us for sleep apnea treatment, we will use the results of your sleep study to create a personalized treatment plan that will best meet your needs. To treat sleep apnea, dental appliances or mouthguards are often used to help keep the jaw in a position that will prevent the airway collapse.
