Sleep Apnea: Stop Snoring!
Untreated sleep apnea – a condition that causes you to stop breathing frequently during sleep – is a very dangerous health problem that should not be ignored. It can cause loud scoring, daytime sleepiness, morning headaches, loss of energy, forgetfulness and depression. Worse, sleep apnea can lead to heart attack, impotence and stroke.
Sleep apnea symptoms common
Experts estimate that about one out of every four American adults has sleep apnea – and nine out of ten of them don’t even know it. Nearly six out of every ten adults are chronic snorers who may be disrupting the sleep of family members and others around them. Fortunately, these problems are easily treatable. At Lebowitz Dental Associates in Phoenix, AZ, we use advanced dental appliances to keep breathing airways open comfortably during sleep.
These include mandibular repositioning appliances, which gently reposition the jaw during sleep to allow easier breathing, and tongue retention appliances. In all, there are about 70 different devices designed to help people with sleep apnea and snoring. Some of these are similar to sports mouth guards or orthodontic retainers.
Say good-bye to C-PAP!
If you or someone you know has used a C-PAP machine and mask for sleep apnea, you’ll love the quiet comfort of a custom dental appliance that is made just for you and your unique anatomy. You will also have the peace of mind knowing that your advanced device is FDA-approved, easily transported on overnight trips and requires nothing electrical.
