Have you been known to snore or do you still feel tired after waking up in the morning? If so, you may be affected by a condition known as sleep apnea. This condition occurs when the upper airway becomes blocked from the soft tissues in the throat while sleeping. This will can halt breathing and restrict oxygen from getting to your brain.
Sleep apnea is commonly underdiagnosed because most people who are affected never even know it since the symptoms occur while they sleep. If sleep apnea is not caught and addressed, you could be at risk for health complications such as heart attacks, diabetes and cognitive disorders. At Smoke Rise Family, Implants and Cosmetic Dentistry , we help patients who have been diagnosed with sleep apnea improve their health, lifestyle and quality of rest.
We understand how a good night’s rest can affect your overall health. As an alternative to invasive surgery or bulky, noisy CPAP machines, Dr. Moeti can fit you with a comfortable oral appliance that will readjust your jaw to open up the airways while sleeping.
There is no uncomfortable CPAP mask you have to wear and your bed partner will not be bothered by machinery sounds—or your snoring — with this convenient sleep apnea treatment!
