Dr. Roya Akbar, DMD can provide patients who are suffering from sleep apnea and snoring with the relief they need to get a good night’s rest. Sleep apnea is considered to known as Sleep Disordered Breathing, in which a patient is having trouble breathing at night, which then causes snoring. Sleep apnea can range in intensity and severity, with some patients suffering from mild snoring, and others inflicted with apnea, where the person stops breathing for a brief period of time. This causes the patient’s blood oxygen levels to plummet, which can lead to even worse health conditions over time.
Sleep apnea and snoring should be treated right away to halt the progress of any sleep disorders. Oral appliance therapy is often a preferred treatment for sleep apnea and snoring. These appliances can include plastic trays, which are similar to mouth guards that are used to treat tongue thrusting. Oral appliance therapy has been shown to have excellent results, making this an ideal treatment for patients who just can’t seem to get a good night’s sleep.
Don’t treat sleep apnea and snoring as something to be ignored. Treat it right away in order to stop any serious health conditions from developing.
