Do you wake up tired even after a full night’s rest or has your partner complained about your snoring? It is possible you may have sleep apnea. It is estimated that over 12 million Americans suffer from sleep apnea, which is a cessation of breathing while asleep. The condition can cause you to wake frequently through the night, disturbing your sleep. It also can cause you to gasp for air and snore, creating an unrestful sleep environment for your partner. But you don’t need to suffer with this issue – as part of our general dentistry services, we can help you with sleep apnea treatment at Arka Family Dental.
Stop Snoring and Sleep Better!
If you have sleep apnea, you may be experiencing morning headaches, dry mouth when awakening, frequent urination throughout the night and problems concentrating during the day. Your family may also have complaints, since your snoring may be keeping them for a good night’s sleep as well. We can fit you for an oral device that can relieve your sleep apnea and your snoring. These customized jaw aligners look similar to an athletic mouth guard and help keep your jaw and tongue in place while you sleep, relieving the obstruction that can cause you to stop breathing. This simple, yet effective device can make a big difference in the quality of sleep you and your family get each night.
Teeth Grinding Relief – Oral Appliances
Another common sleep problem is teeth grinding. Without even knowing you are doing it, you may be clenching or grinding your teeth at night. This can cause jaw pain and this constant jaw pressure during your sleep can damage your teeth. This is another condition that Dr. Vemula and Dr. Dinh can help you resolve. We can fit you for an oral appliance that will prevent you from grinding your teeth while you sleep, relieving your jaw pain and protecting your teeth. These are comfortable mouth guards that are made to fit perfectly in your mouth that you only wear at night when you go to bed.
