Treatment for the condition of obstructive sleep apnea does exist. A dental device for sleep apnea can be fabricated and will position your jaw in such a way that the airway is less likely to become compressed. This custom-made device is worn in the mouth and reduces constriction of airflow by pulling the lower jaw forward and holding it in place. Treatment of central sleep apnea requires the expertise of a cardiologist or neurologist, so consult your physician if you believe that you are experiencing signs of sleep apnea.
A dental device for sleep apnea can help to alleviate the occurrence and resulting effects of obstructive sleep apnea. If you believe that you may have this condition or are exhibiting the signs of sleep apnea, effective treatment is available and can improve your quality of life. Call Dr. Smith and Dr. Cole today to discuss treating your sleep apnea condition.
