Sleep Apnea Treatment
Do You Feel Constantly Drowsy?
Sleep apnea can keep you from getting a good night’s rest and make you feel constantly exhausted. At Lifetime Smiles we offer oral appliances which can help treat the causes of sleep apnea and get you back on a regular sleep cycle.
Sleep apnea is often caused by a relaxation of the throat muscles during sleep. However, it may also occur when the brain does not send proper signals to muscles that control breathing.
Symptoms of sleep apnea include:
- Excessive daytime drowsiness
- Loud snoring
- Dry mouth or sore throat upon awakening
- Attention problems
Oral Appliances for Sleep Apnea
If you suffer from mild to moderate sleep apnea, an oral appliance fitted by your dentist may help you get a good night’s rest. Oral appliances help keep your throat open during sleep by bringing your jaw forward. Not all oral appliances are the same, however, and you may need to try out a few before you find the perfect type.
Dr. Arzegar and the entire team at Lifetime Smiles will work with you to find the right appliance and get it fitted comfortably. Our priority is to get you sleeping peacefully again as quickly as possible. Contact Lifetime Smiles today to set up an appointment.
