Sleep Apnea Oral Appliances “A Non Invasive Treatment Approach”

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder characterized by interrupted breathing during sleep, which causes the individual to wake up frequently and also leads to oxygen deprivation. Untreated sleep apnea can result in high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and other serious health problems, drastically affecting the quality of your life.

Experts can diagnose sleep apnea using varying methods, such as a home sleep study. Sleep study tests for sleep apnea monitor a person’s breathing, oxygen level, and other vital functions while the person is sleeping.

Once a person is diagnosed with sleep apnea, a healthcare specialist might recommend treating the condition with the help of sleep appliances. The treatment options for sleep apnea include CPAP therapy and oral sleep appliances. Sleep appliances offer a noninvasive technique to reposition the jaw and tongue to keep the airway open during sleep. These custom made appliances are suitable for people suffering from mild to moderate sleep apnea. These appliances can also treat snoring, upper airway resistance syndrome, TMJ disorders, bruxism, and certain types of headaches.

A] Sleep Appliances We Use To Treat Sleep Disorders:

1. The Silensor:

The Silensor is a mandibular advancement device that is used to reposition the jaw in order to treat sleep apnea and snoring.

B] How To Determine If You Have Sleep Apnea?

If you are experiencing one or more of the following symptoms, you might be suffering from a sleep disorder and may need to get a sleep apnea mouth guard from a sleep disorder doctor. However, you should keep in mind that expert diagnosis with the help of techniques such as sleep studies is required to confirm:

If you have suddenly started snoring loudly.

If you are feeling extremely tired during the day, even after you have had a full night’s sleep.

If you have woken up with a headache more than often. This could occur due to the drop in the oxygen level caused by sleep apnea.

If you are dealing with interrupted breathing while sleeping, which can last for several seconds or minutes.

If you have woken up gasping or choking during sleep, this is a sign that your brain is waking up the body so that it can resume breathing.
