Is your loud snoring keeping everyone in your household awake at night? If so, obstructive sleep apnea may be to blame. At The Smile Company, we offer treatment for 95051 sleep apnea with oral appliance therapy; addressing the potentially life-threatening consequences of this serious sleep disorder. We also provide snoring appliances to treat “simple snoring” in the absence of obstructive sleep apnea. With the care of our compassionate, experienced team of professionals, we can stop snoring and effectively treat obstructive sleep apnea, helping you get the restful night’s sleep that you need.
Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when the airway at the back of the throat becomes blocked during sleep, making it difficult to breathe. For an accurate diagnosis, your physician will perform a sleep study, to observe your symptoms while you’re at rest. People with sleep apnea may experience heavy snoring, pausing or ceasing to breathe, gasping for air and waking up abruptly. Due to the disturbance in your normal sleep cycle, you may also experience fatigue, headaches and difficulty concentrating throughout your day. For mild to moderate cases of sleep apnea, The Smile Company can fabricate a customized oral appliance to effectively treat the disorder. At The Smile Company, we customize your oral appliance to achieve a precise, comfortable fit, and will guide you on how to properly utilize and maintain the device. The appliance fits over your top and bottom teeth, like a retainer, keeping your jaw in a slightly forward position, which helps air to pass through more easily. And, for patients who simply snore, we can also fabricate an appliance that will allow for a more restful and quieter sleep.
At The Smile Company, we provide advanced solutions to improve your health and sense of wellbeing. If you are living with 95051 sleep apnea, it’s important to seek care right away. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call today.
