Getting a full night’s rest is critical to your brain and body’s ability to function properly. From performing your best at work or school to staying alert behind the wheel, the risks of daytime fatigue have the potential to be life-threatening. If you’ve heard complaints about your loud snoring, abrupt awakenings or gasping in the middle of the night, you may be one of the 25 million adults in the United States suffering from obstructive 40205 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. Individuals with 40205 sleep apnea are often irritable and have difficulty concentrating due to interrupted sleep. Luckily, at Parkside Family Dental we’ve helped many patients suffering from sleep apnea reclaim a good night’s sleep.
In cases of mild to moderate sleep apnea the recommended treatment plan often consists of an oral appliance that our dentist can provide. The custom-fabricated device fits like a retainer and is designed to keep the soft tissues in your throat from obstructing your airway. Our oral appliances are easily portable and simple to care for. Our team of professionals will guide you on how to properly wear and maintain your appliance so that you can enjoy a better night’s sleep. As your Louisville dentist we take a proactive approach to our patients’ oral health and will usually recommend periodic assessment to inspect the fit of the appliance and make sure it’s functioning at its best.
