When we drift off to sleep at night, the soft tissues of our throats relax. With sleep apnea East Village, these soft tissues obstruct the airway, restricting the flow of oxygen to the brain for varying intervals throughout the night. The are a variety of serious health risks which are associated with obstructive sleep apnea, including excessive daytime fatigue—a symptom which can put you and others at risk on the job or behind the wheel—to memory loss, difficulty concentrating, and an increased risk for developing heart disease, high blood pressure, obesity, type 2 diabetes, and stroke. For these reasons, if you have begun to notice any of the more immediate symptoms of sleep apnea, it’s of the utmost importance to have it diagnosed and treated as soon as possible. One of the most common treatments for sleep apnea is to wear a CPAP mask while you sleep. Many patients have difficulty adhering to CPAP therapy or prefer an alternative treatment. At LES Dental Group, we offer customized oral appliance therapy to provide you with a more quiet, comfortable and portable alternative to CPAP therapy. Our oral appliances are ergonomically designed, carefully contoured to the crests and crevices of your smile for comfortable wear. Oral appliance therapy works by keeping your jaw in a forward position, keeping your airway open throughout the night so that you can get the restorative night’s rest you require.
