What Are Sleep Apnea Treatments?
Sleep apnea is recognized as persistent pauses in breathing during sleep. This is caused by the muscles relaxing and gravity pulling your airway closed. The brief suffocation that develops creates excessive strain on the body, which may cause heart conditions, mood changes, weight gain, fatigue, hypertension, and memory loss. There are lots of snoring or sleep apnea solutions to choose from, varying from airway surgeries such as a tonsillectomy, adenoidectomy, or maxillofacial surgery to the use of a CPAP device. Sometimes people are not pleased with those solutions. In these situations, they might turn to dental alternatives to help solve the issue. At Creating Beautiful Smiles in Racine, WI, we focus on producing custom-fit night guards to offer relief to our sleep apnea patients. Our team is proud to offer you this easy, comfortable, and reliable support that will help you achieve better health and well-being.
How Do Sleep Apnea Treatments Work?
Our dentists at Creating Beautiful Smiles use what is known as oral appliance therapy (OAT), which can be quite an effective treatment for sleep apnea. It is a customized device that fits in your mouth while you sleep. It can be compared to a mouth guard for athletics or even a retainer. The primary difference is that instead of guarding your teeth against injury, it gently places the jaw into a forward position to continue to keep your airway open. There are over 100 distinct versions on the market so your dentist will work with you to make certain you get the right one for you. This can be determined after she performs an examination of your tongue, airway, teeth, and jaw. You'll also have x-rays taken so that Dr. Palmer or Dr. Smalkoski are able to make impressions of your teeth for your oral appliance.

If your breathing was interrupted hundreds of times every day from your airway being blocked, you'd find help right away. When the same thing happens during your sleep, it can be all too simple to ignore because you won't remember it when you wake up. If you think you might be suffering from sleep apnea, we encourage you to arrange for a consultation at Creating Beautiful Smiles at your first convenience.
