When people who suffer from obstructive sleep apnea sleep, the muscles at the back of their throat not only relax, but also collapse completely to block the normal passage of air. While sleep apnea can affect anyone, this condition is most common in men over the age of 40, who are also overweight. Obstructive sleep apnea is often characterized by episodes of heavy snoring, waking up abruptly and gasping for air. Sleep apnea disrupts your normal sleeping patterns, which can lead to daytime symptoms such as fatigue, headaches and difficulty concentrating. Keep in mind that to accurately diagnose sleep apnea, your doctor will need to assess your overall health and perform a sleep study. To treat sleep apnea, your physician may recommend a CPAP machine, which provides continuous pressure through a mask worn over your nose, to keep your airway open or in mild to moderate cases refer you to our office for oral appliance therapy. At Diablo Valley Dental, we will design a customized 94523 sleep apnea oral appliance, which fits over your top and bottom teeth to keep your jaw open in a forward position, allowing air to pass through continuously while you sleep. Our oral appliances are comfortable, portable and easy to wear and to maintain. Moreover, our skilled and experienced professionals will guide you on how to properly wear and care for your appliance.
