Dental Sleep Medicine and OSA
Called dental sleep medicine oral appliance therapy is the gentle way to stop snoring helping curb the symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea.
If you followt the Sturm & Associates Blog, you will recall that obstructive sleep apnea, or OSA, is a potentially dangerous, and sometimes deadly, condition that causes the back of the throat to open while sleeping.
Those cessations in breathing can happen 30 times every hour because the person with OSA can’t breathe. These episodes last seconds. This means that the person with obstructive sleep apnea isn’t usually aware of the issue. However, there are some other things that people can watch for.
As previously mentioned, cessations in breath and snoring are two signs of OSA. However, not everyone who snores suffers from obstructive sleep apnea.
- Loud Snoring
- Sleepy During the Day
- Observed Cessations While Asleep
- Dry Mouth
- Morning Headaches and Neck aches
- Mood Swings
- Low Libido
- Difficulty Concentrating
- High Blood Pressure
If you have one or more of the above symptoms, get a sleep test. If you are diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea talk to dental sleep medicine doctor in Yorkville.
Sturm & Associates provides oral appliance therapy and other solutions for people that just can’t get a good night’s sleep because of OSA.
Oral appliance therapy can be anything from a custom made mouth guard to a custom made splint. It all depends on your condition.
