Types Of Sleep Apnea
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the most common form of apnea. This condition results from a blockage of the airway. Often, the soft tissue around the back of the throat collapse during sleep resulting in breathing problems.
The other type of sleep apnea is called Central sleep apnea (CSA). This is where the airway itself is not blocked. Instead, the brain is failing to signal the muscles to
When it comes to dealing with sleep apnea, it often seems like there’s only one choice- the CPAP machine. It’s been an option for many years, and the “treatment” often brings on as many problems as the sleep apnea. Many patients have difficulting sleeping with the mask on or getting used to the noise of the machine.
More partners of patients with sleep apnea struggle with the same issues. But CPAP machines aren’t the only treatment for sleep apnea, and the staff at Gwinnett Dental Implants can help.
More dentists around the country are successfully treating sleep apnea symptoms by using alternative methods. Most of these methods include creating a snoring mouthguard or snoring mouthpiece.
These snore guards can significantly reduce snoring and in most cases, eliminate snoring entirely. Isn’t it time you give your partner a good night’s rest? Isn’t it time you get a good night’s sleep as well?
What Is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is considered a sleep disorder where a person’s breathing is interrupted and often stops for long periods of time during sleep. People that suffer from sleep apnea actually stop breathing many times during the night while asleep.
This condition leaves the brain with reduced oxygen. Sleep apnea can contribute to a number of medical problems such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart attacks, strokes, depression and more. If you think you may have the symptoms of sleep apnea, see your local physician to discuss a sleep study with a specific focus on diagnosing sleep apnea.
If you’ve already been diagnosed with sleep apnea, call us for an appointment today. Let’s talk about leaving your CPAP machine behind.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge in place. While high-tech in nature, dental implants are actually more tooth-saving than traditional bridgework, because implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support.
A bridge, on the other hand, requires the cutting down of healthy, adjacent teeth in order to support the bridge structure.
