Discover a Healthier, More Productive Night’s Rest for Sleep Apnea
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common condition that often causes snoring. While not all snorers have OSA, everyone with OSA snores. And if you have this condition, there’s more to it than just snoring. OSA causes you to stop breathing throughout the night, which leads to fatigue and other issues. Even worse, OSA can lead to severe conditions such as heart disease and cancer. You are deprived of oxygen every time you stop breathing in your sleep. Eventually, this takes a cumulative toll on your health.
For years the primary treatment for OSA has been CPAP therapy, which involves sleeping with a mask over your nose and mouth while hooked up to a machine that pushes oxygen into your respiratory system while preventing any obstruction. Unfortunately, CPAP systems can be expensive, requiring one or more sleep studies, costing hundreds to thousands of dollars, and wearing CPAP masks can be very uncomfortable.
Thankfully, Dr. Allison Brown of High Forest Dental offers a new sleep apnea treatment without CPAP for residents of Denver, Highlands Ranch, Morrison, and Lakewood, Colorado.
How Dental Mouthguards Can Treat Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Are you looking for a way to treat obstructive sleep apnea without using CPAP, medication, or invasive procedures? Dental mouthguards can provide a simple, non-invasive solution for those suffering from this common sleep disorder.
Dental mouthguards work by maintaining an open airway for uninterrupted breathing during sleep. They are customized to fit the user’s mouth, ensuring a secure and comfortable fit. The guard prevents the tongue from blocking the airway, which is often the cause of sleep apnea.
The use of a dental mouthguard has many benefits. Since they are non-invasive, they are easy to use and require little maintenance. They are also much less expensive than other treatments and have been proven effective in treating mild to moderate cases of sleep apnea.
Dr. Brown will be able to assess your individual needs and determine whether or not a mouthguard is the best option for you. She can also provide you with a custom-made mouthguard that fits your mouth perfectly.
Mouthguards can be a great way to treat sleep apnea without using medication or other invasive treatments. Proper care and maintenance can provide long-term relief from sleep apnea symptoms.
