Sleep Apnea Therapy in Grapevine

 

Sleep apnea occurs when patients stop breathing for ten seconds or longer during sleep. These periods of breathlessness are detrimental to the patient’s quality of sleep, elevate blood pressure, and cause a number of other health concerns. Traditionally, patients suffering from sleep apnea are treated by sleep doctors who provide continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) systems to relieve the adverse effects of this sleep disorder, but for many patients, CPAP is not an effective solution. At Smiles by Martin, we offer oral appliance therapy as an effective alternative. Contact us to schedule a sleep apnea consultation today.

 

Oral Appliance Therapy

Custom crafted oral appliances alleviate obstructive sleep apnea by gently shifting the jaw forward. This slight adjustment in positioning places pressure on the throat muscles causing them to tighten and keep the airway clear. Oral appliances are valid treatment options for patients suffering from mild to moderate sleep apnea and those who are chronic snorers.
