Get Help From a Custom Oral Appliance
Dr. Davey realizes how dangerous sleep apnea can be, so we want to make sure you get the help you need to sleep better and prevent serious health problems.
At your consultation, we’ll perform a sleep apnea and snoring screening to see if you have symptoms of sleep apnea. If you do, we’ll give you an easy-to-use sleep test to take home.
Afterward, we’ll consult with a sleep physician to review the results and get you a prescription for treatment if needed.
A custom-fit oral appliance, made right in our office, is usually the first recommendation for sleep apnea treatment. It will gently move your lower jaw forward to prevent your throat’s soft tissues from blocking your airway.
You will notice the effects almost immediately – you’ll sleep better, snore less, and wake up feeling more rested.
Some severe sleep apnea sufferers require CPAP treatment as well. A CPAP machine treats sleep apnea by continually blowing air into your airway to keep it open.
If the sleep physician feels that CPAP treatment is needed for your sleep apnea, we will work with them to get you a CPAP machine in addition to your new oral appliance.
Learn More About Sleep Apnea
Sleep apnea happens when your airway gets blocked while sleeping. It is normal for your tongue, tonsils, and other soft tissues in your throat to relax while sleeping. However, they can relax so much that your air supply is cut off.
When this happens, your brain signals your body to wake up so that you can get more oxygen. You then take in more air – usually with a loud snort – and go back to sleep. This cycle can repeat 30 or more times per hour! And the sleep apnea sufferer most likely won’t even realize it.
Besides disrupting your sleep and causing snoring, sleep apnea is a potentially deadly condition. Left untreated it can cause diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, heart disease, and strokes.
