Our Sleep Apnea Treatment Can Raise the Bar on Your Health
If asked, most people would say they’d like to be healthy. One of the ways you can dramatically improve your health is by getting sleep apnea treatment if you have symptoms of this disorder. When obstructive sleep apnea occurs, your airway becomes partially blocked and you stop breathing for a few seconds. Your brain then signals your body to wake up and take in more oxygen. You drift back to sleep and the cycle soon repeats itself, sometimes dozens of times per hour.
A custom-fitted sleep apnea appliance moves your lower jaw gently forward to help keep the soft tissues in the back of your throat from blocking your airway. The result is that you sleep better and snore less or not at all. Your bed partner will appreciate that!
For many people, an appliance is an alternative to a CPAP machine. Unlike a CPAP, the appliance has no moving parts. Plus, it’s typically easier for both you and your bed partner to get used to.
If you haven’t been diagnosed yet, we work with physicians in the area who can diagnose your condition. Then we can have a professional sleep appliance made for you.
To get help for your Stillwater sleep apnea, talk to us about it during your next checkup or call Lift Dental today at 651-372-8444 to schedule an appointment. You can also request an appointment online.
