Do you feel exhausted every morning despite how much you’ve slept? Does your bed partner jab you every night because you’re constantly snoring? Both of these symptoms are telltale signs of sleep apnea, a very serious condition that can not only rob someone of their rest but also their health if left untreated. At NeoSmile Dental Care, our dentists are able to help patients struggling with these problems feel like themselves again using specially-made oral appliances. Your ultimate sleep solution may just be a mouthguard that could literally fit in your pocket!
When a person has sleep apnea, it means their breathing is repeatedly becoming cutoff for short periods of time throughout the night, most likely because the tissues towards the back of the throat are collapsing together. We can design a sleep appliance that fits over the teeth and gently moves the jaw forward, which prevents the airway from ever fully closing. As a result, a patient is able to breathe normally, stop snoring, and get the quality rest they need to wake up feeling fulling energized and focused.
