West Chester Sleep Apnea

When you wake up in the morning, do you feel well rested? Getting a restful night’s sleep is not always a matter of how many hours you sleep —  dozing may be the problem. If you feel fatigued even after what you think is a full night’s rest, you may be among the 25 million across the US who suffer from a chronic condition known as obstructive sleep apnea, or OSA. OSA involves repeated pauses in breathing during sleep, obstructing the intake of oxygen during the night. At West Chester Dental Smile Center, your dentist provides customized treatment for West Chester sleep apnea with customized fabricated dental appliances.

Partners of patients with sleep apnea often lament the over the loud and frequent snoring they live (and try to sleep) with, and that is so characteristic of OSA sufferers. With obstructive sleep apnea, the muscles of the mouth and throat relax during sleep, falling back into the upper airway and restricting the passage of air. Snoring is usually a result of soft tissue obstructing the breathing passageway, so if you’re a snorer, you may want to get evaluated. With the help of custom oral appliances, your West Chester sleep apnea dentist can provide professional assistance with an easy to use device that fits in your mouth like a sports mouth guard or orthodontic retainer. Appliances to treat sleep apnea are fully customized to every ridge and rise of your mouth, for an extremely comfortable fit. By holding up the soft tissues that would otherwise obstruct your airway, this custom device, as an added bonus, can help to limit snoring during the night!

All kidding aside, failure to get a good night’s rest can have serious—even life-threatening—consequences. With the help of a sleep apnea appliance, countless patients have reported getting a better night’s rest and feeling much sharper and more energetic throughout the day. If you believe you or your partner have been exhibiting signs of OSA, call your West Chester sleep apnea dentist at West Chester Dental Smile Center to schedule your next appointment today!

Where Can I Get 45069 Sleep Apnea Treatment?

Approximately 25 million adults in the United States alone have obstructive sleep apnea. Are you one of these individuals?  If you’ve heard complaints about your loud snoring, abrupt awakenings, or episodes of gasping for air in the middle of the night, you may want to consider the possibility you are suffering from 45069 sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a serious and potentially life threatening condition that occurs when the soft tissues and muscles in the back of the throat relax, restricting the airway. A restricted flow of oxygen is always a bad thing so it is no wonder that so many individuals with sleep apnea find themselves with headaches in the morning, drowsiness, difficulty concentrating and irritability.

Seeking out the assistance of a well-respected 45069 sleep apnea specialist is the best thing you can do for overall well-being. At West Chester Dental Smile Center, we’ve helped many patients reclaim a full night’s rest and we are confident we can do the same for you. While it may sound somewhat unexpected that a dentist should treat a sleep issue, the mechanics behind what causes and treats sleep apnea move it into the dentist’s realm of expertise. In many cases the recommended treatment plan for sleep apnea consists of an oral appliance that is custom fabricated to fit your mouth. The device fits like a retainer and is designed to keep the soft tissues in your throat from obstructing your airway. Patients who believe that they may be suffering from sleep apnea should be initially evaluated by a physician to determine if they are “simple snorers” or have mild to moderate or more severe expressions of sleep apnea. Oral appliances are typically prescribed for patients with mild to moderate forms of sleep apnea.
