What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a disorder where your body is not taking in enough oxygen to keep the lungs full and your blood oxygenated. Your body will feel like it is suffocating and in turn, will “wake” you in the middle of the night. You will not be fully woken up, but your body will not get deep into the sleep cycles needed for restorative sleep. Snoring is a symptom that occurs when your airway is constricted as you breathe in, and keeps you from getting full oxygenation.
How Do You Treat Sleep Apnea?
Treating sleep apnea is about keeping the airways open. There are several tools. One of which is a CPAP machine, but this machine can be noisy for your partner. Another method is using a device similar to a night guard. What will happen is that at the office we will take an impression to fit you with the device, which will alter how your mouth closes at night. However, you will still be comfortable. It will open up your airways which will allow you to get the air you need.
