What is Sleep Apnea?

Over 40% of Canadian adults reportedly struggle with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA.)

This highly prevalent condition prevents air from properly entering and exiting your lungs, dangerously disrupting your sleep and keeping you from getting the required rest that you need. Some of the most common symptoms of OSA include snoring, lack of energy, irritability, morning headaches, and gasping or choking during your sleep, among others.

Sleep Apnea & Dentistry: The Unknown Connection You Need To Know

Yes, there is a link to sleep apnea and dentistry. In fact, one of the most effective treatments for those who are dealing with OSA involves the use of oral sleep apnea appliances.

Manufactured by dentists, oral appliances provide patients with a convenient and comfortable alternative to the C-PAP machine. Many doctors recommend C-PAP machines for those affected by OSA, but they can negatively impact your your sleep in other ways. After all, it can be quite a struggle to sleep comfortably with a head gear, mask, and hose attached to your head. Some estimates show that up to 50% of patients prescribed with C-PAP therapy are noncompliant with it. Oral appliances are much easier for patients to tolerate, and are not nearly as intrusive as C-PAP machines.

Oral Appliances

Oral appliance therapy is recognized by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine as a first line treatment for snoring and mild to moderate cases of sleep apnea. If you feel that you may be experiencing symptoms of sleep apnea, don’t wait- get an expert opinion as soon as possible.
