Dealing with Sleep Apnea?
Snoring is a potentially serious a condition where you stop breathing for 10 seconds or more during sleep. This is referred to as Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). Common symptoms include being awakened by coughing or choking, morning headaches, excessive fatigue, and more. Because OSA repeatedly prevents breathing while you sleep, it can place you at a higher risk of a heart attack or stroke.
In the past, the most effective solution to sleep apnea was a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine, equipped with a cumbersome oxygen mask that was worn throughout the night. At Cityview Smiles Dental, however, we are proud to offer the latest innovation in sleep dentistry: Custom appliances that can help open your airway and reduce or eliminate snoring, thus reducing the need to use a CPAP machine.
To improve your chances of success, we often recommend making subtle changes in your lifestyle. For example, simply engaging in mild exercise on a daily basis and/or quitting smoking can significantly aid your dental treatment.
