Overcome Daytime Fatigue and Sleeplessness with Oral Appliance for Sleep Apnea

If you want to be healthy, there is no substitute for a restful night’s sleep. Unfortunately, quality sleep is easier said than done if you have sleep apnea. According to the National Sleep Foundation (NSF), more than 18 million are battling sleep apnea! The numbers are even more because of the undiagnosed cases out there.

Sleep apnea is more than a sleeping disorder. Yes, it disrupts your sleep, but it also puts you at risk of health complications like heart disease, stroke, and depression, among others, when left untreated. The good news is that you can get sleep apnea treatment in Kingston, Pennsylvania, using a simple, non-invasive therapy. At Lawrence Dental Group, we offer oral appliance therapy to overcome sleep apnea.

Sleep apnea explained

Overcome Daytime Fatigue and Sleeplessness with Oral Appliance for Sleep Apnea in Kingston PA Area

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that results in intermittent pauses in breathing while sleeping. While the stoppage in breathing is short-lived, the episodes can occur up to a hundred times during the night! But what causes the pause in breathing?

If you have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), the muscles at the back of the throat collapse, obstructing your breathing when sleeping. For patients with central sleep apnea, the brain fails to send the right signals to the breathing muscles, disrupting breathing.

Symptoms of sleep apnea

Since sleep apnea patients barely get enough sleep, they often experience extreme daytime fatigue. Not only are they sleep-deprived, but they experience poor concentration and exhibit mood problems like depression. The other symptoms of sleep apnea include:

  • Chronic snoring
  • Morning headaches
  • Waking up with a dry mouth or sore throat
  • Having difficulty with sleep/insomnia

When you experience the above symptoms, you don’t have to wait for the problem to get out of hand. Please book an appointment with Dr. Stephen Lawrence for treatment.

Treating sleep apnea

CPAP is usually the go-to treatment for patients with sleep apnea. However, most patients don’t follow through with this treatment since it’s uncomfortable, noisy, bulky, and depends on electricity to operate. We treat sleep apnea using a custom-made dental device that puts your jaw forward and prevents your tongue and other soft tissues from collapsing when sleeping.

Patients using oral appliance therapy can sleep throughout the night because their airway remains open. The results are restored energy, reduced headaches, and a restful night’s sleep.
