If you’re feeling tired and you’re keeping your partner up at night with your snoring, it’s clear that something needs to change. Sleep apnea is a condition that impacts millions of people every day, but the good news is that there is treatment. Here at Mahajan Dentistry, Dr. Rekha Mahajan and her highly-trained team can help you find relief with effective options for sleep apnea.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea, also called OSA, is caused when your airways encounter blockage. It forces you to stop breathing during sleep and gasp for air. For most patients, the condition may cause them to awaken many times every night, resulting in very poor quality of sleep, among other health issues. This condition can cause symptoms such as:
Patients diagnosed with sleep apnea are often told to purchase expensive CPAP machines. Not only can these machines be costly, but they can also be incredibly uncomfortable to wear. There’s also the matter of freedom. Who wants to feel tethered to a machine to achieve a good night’s rest and not disturb their partner?
Dr. Mahajan has experience in providing patients suffering from sleep apnea with an effective treatment that eliminates the need for a CPAP machine. An oral appliance comprising a customized mouthpiece is worn by patients as they sleep. This appliance fits over the teeth while positioning the tongue and lower jaw forward. This action ensures you retain an open airway to achieve a good night’s rest.
While there’s no cure for sleep apnea, there is a much more comfortable and affordable alternative to cumbersome and expensive CPAP devices.
