Snoring & Sleep Apnea Devices in New Westminster
If snoring or mild to moderate sleep apnea is disturbing your sleep, a dental orthotic device may be able to help resolve some or all your issues. This is a simple, quiet, comfortable, and custom-fit option that can lead to better sleep, improved daytime concentration, and overall improvement in your health.
A Good Night of Rest is Ahead
Snoring and sleep apnea can result in a variety of health complications ranging from mild to serious. Sleepiness, fatigue, moodiness, and difficulty concentrating are some of the common mild symptoms of these conditions, while more serious complications such as circulatory issues and organ failure can also occur because of sleep apnea.
How Snoring and Sleep Apnea Devices Work
Snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (the most common type) are most often the result of relaxation of the soft tissue at the back of the mouth near the throat, which restricts the flow of oxygen into the lungs. Snoring and sleep apnea orthotics are oral devices that are designed to move the mandible (lower jaw) forward during sleep. This relieves downward pressure from relaxation at the back of the throat and clears the airway. Oral devices for sleep apnea may also be another option for patients who cannot tolerate a CPAP machine for sleep apnea treatment – we will determine this jointly with your doctor or sleep specialist.
