Sleep apnea is a common condition that can have a drastic impact on your health and wellness when it’s left un-addressed. Many studies have connected it to an increased risk of experiencing certain medical conditions, including cardiovascular disease, stroke, and even diabetes. Our team’s top priority is to ensure the wellbeing of our patients, which is why we offer sleep apnea therapy, including snoreguards, to help you get the quality of rest that you deserve.
Obstructive sleep apnea, also known as OSA, is one of the most diagnosed types of this sleeping condition that impacts patients. Some of the most common symptoms include daytime fatigue, forgetfulness, chronic snoring, and waking up gasping for air. These are all a result of narrow airways that keeps your body from receiving the oxygen necessary to reach deep sleep. Some people who are at a higher risk of experiencing sleep apnea include those who have excessive fat around their neck or chest, or if it runs in the family.
For patients who have received a diagnosis of their condition by completing a sleep study, we offer custom-crafted snoreguards to minimize the effects. These help shift the jaw forward and open the airway to minimize symptoms of sleep apnea and ensure that the body receives enough oxygen each night. They’re custom-fitted to the mouth to be as comfortable and non-intrusive as possible.
