What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a condition that causes people to stop breathing in their sleep, depriving the body of oxygen for 10-20 seconds at a time. Breathing cessation can occur hundreds of times during a single night, disrupting sleep cycles, and leaving a patient chronically sleep deprived. Sleep apnea dentistry can help. Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder, and as such, should be diagnosed in a sleep clinic. While your condition cannot be diagnosed by your dentist, they are able to treat it with sleep apnea dentistry.

Sleep Apnea Treatment

Your doctor or a sleep disorder specialist may suggest simple changes, such as weight loss or something more aggressive like Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) therapy, a facemask worn while sleeping that blows a stream of air into your throat in an effort to keep the airway open. If these options prove unsuccessful for you, you should talk to Dr. Hale. As a sleep apnea dentist, Dr. Hale offers oral devices that can prevent the blockage of the airways. With his help, sleep apnea symptoms may be ameliorated with a simple oral appliance.
