Seeing A Dentist For Sleep Apnea

Seeing A Dentist For Sleep Apnea

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a sleep disorder that occurs when the airway becomes blocked or narrowed, interrupting normal breathing. It can prevent enough air from getting into the lungs, leading to several health problems.

Do You Have OSA?

Obstructive Sleep Apnea is often associated with snoring but can also occur without sound. The most common symptoms of Obstructive Sleep Apnea include:

  • Snoring
  • Excessive daytime sleepiness
  • Trouble staying asleep
  • Morning headaches
  • Dry mouth or sore throat
  • Irritability
  • Poor concentration
  • Insomnia
  • Loud breathing during sleep
  • Nightmares

What To Do

If you experience any of these symptoms, you must see a dentist or sleep specialist for an evaluation. They can help treat obstructive sleep apnea and can be treated with various methods, including dental appliances or CPAP. In some cases, surgery may also be necessary.

Treatment is essential to improve overall health and quality of life. If left untreated, Obstructive Sleep Apnea can lead to serious health problems, including:

  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Drowsy driving

Silent Nite Sleep Appliance

The Silent Nite Sleep Appliance is a device that helps people achieve a deeper, more satisfying night’s sleep. It is a safe and effective way to treat sleep-disordered breathing, assisting people in getting the rest they need to feel their best.

The FDA clears it for treating snoring and mild to moderate sleep apnea, and more than 400,000 devices have been delivered.

The appliance comes with an AM Aligner and extra connectors. The optional “One for Relief, One for Reserve” Glidewell Clinical Twinpak™ helps ensure patients never go untreated.

Silent Nite Sleep Appliance Features

The Silent Nite Sleep Appliance is comfortable to wear and reduces blood pressure. If you have obstructive sleep apnea and are looking for a treatment to help reduce your blood pressure, the Silent Nite Sleep Appliance may be right for you.

The appliance is flexible, thin, and comfortable. It is an excellent option for those looking for a way to mitigate or prevent the disruptive, unhealthy effects of snoring and mild to moderate sleep apnea. It has been shown to have documented clinical success in doing just that.

Furthermore, the Silent Nite Sleep Appliance is intended to gently push the lower jaw forward in a therapeutic position during sleep, activating the airway muscles and ligaments and preventing the airway from contracting.

Lastly, each Silent Nite case includes extra connectors in various sizes, and an AM Aligner to aid patients in exercising and realigning their lower jaw muscles.

All of these features make the Silent Nite Sleep Appliance an excellent option for those looking for a way to get a deeper, more satisfying night’s sleep.

Do you snore?

Snoring is a common sign of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), a severe sleep disorder that can cause health problems.

Fortunately, there are treatments for obstructive sleep apnea. Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) is one of the most effective treatments. CPAP therapy involves wearing a mask that connects to a machine that gently blows air into your nose while you sleep. It keeps your airway open and prevents apneas from occurring.
