The Dangers of Sleep Apnea
Because sleep apnea cuts off the flow of vital oxygen and causes stress on the body, it has been linked to health problems such as:
- High blood pressure.
- Heart disease.
- Liver disease.
- Weight gain.
- Metabolic syndrome.
- Adverse reactions to medication.
Plus, sleep deprivation can have serious consequences, such as daytime drowsiness and involuntary sleep—dangerous or fatal when driving or operating heavy machinery. It also causes mood swings and poor mental performance, which can harm personal and work relationships.
Sleep Apnea Treatment in Centreville
Oral appliance therapy at Centreville Dental Wellness Center can help you overcome your sleep disorder. Oral appliance therapy, also called (OAT) involves plastic devices that are worn in the mouth like a retainer. Your sleep apnea mouth guard brings your jaw forward to allow more air into the restricted airway.
Oral appliances help prevent the collapse of the tongue and soft tissues in the back of the throat, keeping the airway open and free during sleep, promoting adequate air intake and better sleep.
Dr. Rena Vakay, has extensive training and certification in oral appliance therapy. At the time of your visit, Dr. Vakay can determine which of the appliances are suited for you. Dr. Vakay and her staff will work with your physician on your diagnosis, treatment, and ongoing care.
Advantages of Having Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT):
- Stop snoring!
- Get better sleep!
- Ditch your CPAP in favor of a small, comfortable appliance.
- Enjoy improved health all around.
The first visit will include a review of your sleep study and the prescription from your physician. At that time an evaluation will be done to determine the best oral appliance for you.
Hate Your CPAP Device?
Although CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machines help some patients, others can’t stand them. They don’t want to try to sleep with a mask on and a noisy machine next to them.
That’s why we offer CPAP alternatives. We can customize a sleep apnea mouth guard that will open your airway, preventing or reducing snoring without using a loud motor or uncomfortable facemask like the CPAP.
