Dental Sleep Apnea & Snoring Solutions
Sleep apnea is a dangerous condition where you stop breathing during sleep dozens or even hundreds of times during the night. This lack of oxygen to the brain can have negative long-term effects on your health. With sleep apnea, you may snore loudly, gasp for air in your sleep and awaken feeling tired, irritable and unable to think clearly. Untreated sleep apnea can lead to:
- Auto accidents
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
- Poor job performance
An alternative to CPAP treatment
Until recently, the only really effective treatment for sleep apnea has been the CPAP device, consisting of a face mask and special tubing that must be worn during sleep to keep your airway open and allow you to breathe. Many patients find this quite uncomfortable and do not comply with the treatment, which only increases the threats to their health and life.
Dr. Patel offers a much more comfortable alternative, a special, custom-made dental appliance that fits comfortably inside your mouth and helps keep your breathing passage open while you sleep.
