Sleep Apnea Treatment

What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a common, yet serious, condition that occurs when the upper airway becomes blocked while sleeping. This causes breathing to be halted, restricting oxygen to the brain, and is a common cause of snoring and a poor night’s rest. This condition is commonly underdiagnosed as many of those who suffer from it are unaware they are affected. If not diagnosed and treated, sleep apnea can cause serious health complications such as heart attacks, diabetes and cognitive disorders.

Common symptoms of sleep apnea include:

  • Frequent loud snoring
  • Cessations of breathing while asleep
  • Waking up gasping for air
  • Daytime fatigue
  • Frequent headaches
  • Difficulty focusing

An Oral Appliance Solution

Sleep Apnea Treatment Clifton Park, NY

A common treatment for sleep apnea is a CPAP machine, which forces air down your airway throughout the night. While time-tested and effective, some people are found to be CPAP intolerant and unable to use the device. At Sitwell Dental, we offer a less obstructive solution in the form of SomnoDent oral appliances. These devices are worn in the mouth similar to a mouthguard and are designed to adjust the jaw to prevent the upper airway from becoming blocked. We custom-fit oral appliances to your jaw for a comfortable fit and effective treatment. Many patients prefer oral appliances because they are not bulky or uncomfortable like some find CPAP machines to be, and there is no noise to wake the user or bed partner at night.
