Non-Invasive Treatment for Sleep Apnea and Snoring in Richmond TX
Snoring during the night can be more than a frustrating annoyance; it can also be a sign of a larger problem. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a condition caused by an obstructed airway that blocks the passage of air while sleeping. Snoring is one sign of sleep apnea, along with choking and gasping during the night and daytime sleepiness.
OSA can have serious health consequences, including high blood pressure and abnormal heart rhythms. While OSA treatment usually involves wearing a mask hooked to a CPAP machine, many people cannot tolerate this arrangement while sleeping. We offer non-invasive alternatives at Haven Dentistry in Aliana.
Our personalized oral appliances are part of our approach to dental sleep medicine. These appliances are created especially for you and gently advance your jaw, keeping your airway unobstructed during sleep. This treatment is an effective way to treat sleep-disordered breathing, including OSA and snoring, without a CPAP or mask.
Remember, snoring can indicate a potentially dangerous condition. For help in getting a restful and healthy night’s sleep, contact Haven Dentistry now.
