Variations of sleep apnea exist, but the most common is obstructive sleep apnea, where airways become blocked during sleep. Causes of sleep apnea generally include the tongue falling back into the throat and collapse of tissues when in a relaxed state. Without proper treatment, sleep apnea increases your risk for serious health issues, including high blood pressure, diabetes, heart attack, and stroke. If you have any of the following symptoms, receiving a proper diagnosis can not only improve your sleep, but your health as well! Symptoms of Sleep Apnea:
We can commonly treat sleep apnea with non-invasive solutions, including custom mouthguards and medically approved apnea appliances. Mouthguards and appliances help treat snoring and sleep apnea by holding the lower jaw forward so the air passages remain unobstructed while you sleep. A proven alternative to CPAP treatment, these easily portable and unobtrusive appliances effectively help you sleep more soundly and restfully, helping you feel energized and awake during the day!
