Improve Your Quality Of Life With Snoring & Sleep Apnea Solutions

Do you suffer from excessive and loud snoring? If you don’t wake yourself up from it, do your family members tell you about it the next morning? If so, it’s possible that you have sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a dangerous disorder that prevents people from getting enough oxygen while they are sleeping.

Treating Your Sleep Apnea For A Healthier Night’s Rest

One of the most effective ways to treat sleep apnea is with a custom oral appliance. Dr. Newingham will have one created especially for you and your condition.

The oral appliance is a mouthpiece that you will wear while you sleep. It repositions and stabilizes your jaw and your tongue, allowing you to get a constant flow of air into your body. Oral appliance therapy can be extremely effective and is much more convenient than other treatment options, including CPAP devices.

Determining If You Have Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is usually caused by your tongue or excessive tissue in your throat that prevents a constant flow of oxygen. It deprives your brain and heart of the oxygen they require and causes you to wake up for short periods several times every night, often with no memory of it. Some other symptoms of sleep apnea include:

  • Excessive and loud snoring
  • Gasping for air or choking during sleep
  • Insomnia
  • Exhaustion and fatigue

If you’re suffering from these symptoms, Dr. Newingham will arrange for you to meet a doctor who specializes in sleep apnea so you can take a sleep study. This study will help us determine if you have it and if so, how serious your condition is.

After you’ve received your oral appliance, Dr. Newingham will recommend a follow-up sleep study to make sure you’re fully benefiting from the treatment. He will also check on the condition of your appliance when you come in for regular dental exams.

Sleep apnea can cause increased risk of heart attack, diabetes, and strokes, so it’s important to contact us right away for treatment!
