Sleep Apnea Treatment that Fits Your Needs


What is Sleep Apnea?

At Sleep Better Lexington, we are dedicated to helping you achieve a healthy night sleep – this mean’s helping to treat the cause of sleep apnea.

Sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder marked by interruptions and pauses in breathing during sleep. It can result in the brain, and other parts of the body, not getting enough oxygen and can become fatal. The most common type of sleep apnea is obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). It is caused by obstructions in the airway, such as the tongue rolling back in the throat or collapsed tissues in the airway. Untreated sleep apnea can contribute to several serious health conditions, including heart disease, high blood pressure and dementia. It can trigger diabetes, erectile dysfunction, depression and/or insomnia.

Sleep apnea must be diagnosed by a sleep physician. We recommend talking to our sleep dentists for treatment once you have seen your physician about your sleep apnea symptoms. Common signs of sleep apnea include:

  • Choking or Gasping for air during sleep
  • Snoring
  • Chronic Headaches
  • Extreme drowsiness during the day
  • Shortness of breath
  • Personality changes and irritability
  • Waking up with a very dry or sore throat

 

Traditional Treatments

Treatments for sleep apnea may depend on the severity of your condition. One traditional treatment for sleep apnea is a continuous positive airway pressure machine, otherwise known as a CPAP machine, which sends a consistent oxygen flow directly into your nose and mouth as you sleep, helping you breathe normally. CPAP machines can prevent pauses in breathing while you sleep without waking you up, but they can also be very uncomfortable to wear and quite noisy. Often times they make it more difficult to fall asleep; and they have been known to cause dry mouth and nasal congestion. For patients with anxiety, wearing CPAP masks can also cause claustrophobia.

If you suffer from mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea, the good news is we have an alternative solution. Our sleep dentists can offer oral appliance therapy. These appliances fit over your teeth, keeping your airway open while you sleep by putting pressure on your tongue or by holding your jaw in a position that prevents your airway from becoming blocked.

At Sleep Better Lexington, we have been able to help thousands of patients overcome obstructive sleep apnea with oral appliance therapy. If you are ready to sleep better, call our office at (859) 721-2072 to schedule your consultation with our experienced team.

We Can Help You Get A Better Night Sleep

For many people, traditional therapies fail to address their sleep symptoms. Night time leaves them restless, as they wake up at all hours short of breath and gasping for air. Others go through their days with chronic headaches; while they and their partner suffer from daytime sleepiness due to all the heavy snoring that occurred the night before. Even those trying CPAP treatment deal with nightly discomfort, dry nose/mouth/throat, rhinitis, nasal congestion and sore eyes. Learn more about our solution, an alternative to the CPAP, right here at Sleep Better Lexington!
