Restore Sweet Dreams With Sleep Apnea Treatment

Do you often wake up exhausted, irritable, or with a headache? If so, you might be suffering from sleep apnea, a potentially serious sleep disorder that disrupts your breathing while you're asleep. Our dentists at Sleep Dentistry of Portland and Sleep Dentistry of Vancouver can play a crucial role in treating sleep apnea once a sleep health specialist diagnoses it.

Understanding Sleep Apnea:

Sleep apnea is a condition where your breathing repeatedly stops and starts during sleep due to a blocked or narrowed airway. This interruption can happen hundreds of times each night, leading to poor sleep quality and various health issues, including fatigue, high blood pressure, and even heart problems.

Diagnosis and Referral:

If you suspect you have sleep apnea, we recommend consulting a sleep health specialist or undergoing a sleep study, as only a sleep health specialist can diagnose sleep apnea in the states of Oregon and Washington. Once you’ve been diagnosed, our dentist will thoroughly evaluate your oral and dental health, ensuring that an oral appliance is suitable for you.

Customized Oral Appliance:

Once it's determined that an oral appliance is the right solution for you, our dentist will create a custom-made device. These appliances are designed to reposition your jaw and tongue, keeping your airway open during sleep. The fit is precise and comfortable, ensuring you can sleep soundly without disruption.

Benefits of Oral Appliance Therapy:

  • Improved Sleep Quality: Oral appliances help reduce or eliminate breathing interruptions, allowing you to enjoy deeper and more restful sleep.
  • Enhanced Daytime Alertness: You'll experience increased daytime alertness and reduced daytime fatigue with better sleep.
  • Non-Invasive: Unlike other treatments for sleep apnea, such as surgery or continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machines, oral appliances are non-invasive and easy to use.
  • Portable and Convenient: These devices are small, portable, and easy to maintain, making them an ideal choice for those who travel frequently.

Regular Follow-ups:

Our dentist will schedule regular follow-up appointments to ensure that the oral appliance continues to work effectively. They will also make any necessary adjustments to maintain its optimal performance.

Don’t let sleep apnea impact your quality of life any longer. Consult a sleep health specialist and contact us to get fitted with an oral appliance. Together, we can help you regain restful sleep so you can wake up each day feeling refreshed and revitalized.
