Sleep apnea deprives you of the ability to properly rest at night. The longer it remains unaddressed, the more consequential that deprivation can be to your physical and mental well-being. Fortunately, we can help many who suffer from this problem by providing a custom oral appliance that addresses breathing obstructions that lead to nightly rest issues.
Sleep apnea makes it difficult to remain asleep, which causes disruptions in your rest cycle. Because these cycles are disrupted, you do not enjoy the recovery that is supposed to occur in the course of your night. A person who struggles with this can snore and experience labored, uneven breathing while they rest. They can also experience:
- Increased blood pressure
- Changes in mood and focus
- Short-term memory issues
- Difficulty managing other health conditions
We provide treatment for obstructive sleep apnea, a form of the condition linked to physical airway obstructions. A patient can receive a Herbst or Moses oral appliance, a soft plastic guard custom-made to fit them. When in place, it corrects the position of the jaw to stop soft tissues in the throat from blocking your airways, which allows you to sleep throughout the night.
The sooner you treat sleep apnea, the sooner you put a stop to the effects of prolonged sleep deprivation. For more information on how our appliance therapy helps those who struggle with nightly breathing difficulties related to sleep apnea, call Modern Dentistry Of Shrewsbury at 508-842-8838.
