Sleep Apnea Treatment
Sleep Apnea Treatment
Did you know that sleep apnea can be solved using dental solutions? Oral appliance therapy can be used to treat sleep apnea symptoms. Obstructive sleep apnea and snoring can cause many adults to miss out on a good night’s sleep, which is more than an annoyance. Good sleep is essential to good health. Dr. Rostami and the team at Brentwood Dental Group work with patients to provide sleep apnea treatment so they can feel more rested and improve overall health.
What is oral appliance therapy?
An oral appliance is a device an adult places in the mouth at night. Oral appliances are worn much like a night guard or retainer. Each appliance is custom-made for a perfect fit and maximum effectiveness in relieving snoring and other sleep-related problems. The appliance supports the jaw in such a way as to allow airways to remain open while you sleep.
How do I know if oral appliance therapy is right for me?
To determine whether your snoring is linked to sleep apnea or another condition, you must be diagnosed by a trained professional. A board certified sleep medicine physician can observe your symptoms to determine if an oral appliance can be of help to you. While the most common recommendation for treating sleep apnea is CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) therapy, some patients cannot use the mask required during sleep or simply prefer an alternative treatment. In these cases, an oral appliance might be the right solution for you.
Dr. Rostami and the team at Brentwood Dental Group have the experience and knowledge to provide for your dental needs, including the creation and maintenance of an oral appliance. Oral appliance therapy should only be provided by a dentist specially trained to help adults with sleep-related disorders. Dr. Rostami has the training and experience to guarantee safe and effective care.
