What Is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea and sleep breathing disorders (SBD) affects millions worldwide. The condition is often caused by the soft tissues at the back of the throat relaxing and covering the airway. This results in loud snoring and cessations in your breathing throughout the night, which causes you to wake up to catch your breath continually. We offer multiple levels of treatment, depending on the severity of your condition. There are many oral device appliances that open the airway, eliminating sleep apnea symptoms.

Why Might Sleep Apnea Treatment Be Needed?

Sleep apnea is a medical condition that can seriously impact your way of life. Because you’re not sleeping properly, you’re too exhausted to do anything throughout the day. You may even fall asleep on the job or when trying to spend time with your loved ones. The loud snoring at night can even be disruptive to your loved ones, causing them to stay awake.  

Who Is a Candidate for Sleep Apnea Treatment?

Many manifestations of sleep apnea are evident in your mouth. Your dentist at Bear River Dental can recognize these signs. They can include the following:

  1. Size and shape of your arches 
  2. Size and position of your tongue relative to your teeth 
  3. Teeth grinding
  4. Broken or cracked teeth 
  5. Failed dental work
  6. Mouth breathing

With a simple exam and a 3-D X-ray, which measures airway volume, we are able to recognize the possibility of sleep apnea and sleep breathing disorders. Patients with mild sleep apnea symptoms can benefit from oral appliances. These devices work by opening the airway, making it easier for you to breathe while you sleep. We will review your health and medical history to ensure correct treatment. If you have sleep apnea, it is essential to consider treatment to improve your quality of life.

What Happens during Sleep Apnea Treatment?

At Bear River Dental we begin with a simple take home test followed by a consultation with a sleep physician to make a clinical diagnosis. Once sleep apnea or SBD has been identified, we decide which dental appliances will work best for your specific situation. Are you clenching and grinding, snoring, or needing to lessen the effects of sleep apnea? With state of the art digital scans, appliances can fit comfortably and provide you with a restful and quiet night’s sleep.  Come let us help you understand the connection between your overall health, your sleep, and your dental health.
