At Pleasure Dental in Royse City, we know how frustrating it can be when your jaws and body seem to work against you. If you are tired of CPAP machines and other treatments, consider visiting us for a long-lasting solution to your sleep apnea today.
Obstructive sleep apnea is a medical condition where the throat muscles relax while someone is sleeping. When they relax, the muscles block the airway, resulting in a person choking or being unable to breathe in their sleep. Individuals with obstructive sleep apnea usually wake up, but there is the fear that they won’t go after a bad episode.
Most people don’t realize dental specialists can help with obstructive sleep apnea, but the staff at Pleasure Dental has made it our mission to help. Once you have an official medical diagnosis from a physician, our knowledgeable dentist can create a customized dental appliance for you.
The dental appliance can be made from a variety of materials in varying levels of firmness. Its primary job is to relocate and set the jaws while you sleep, keeping the airway open and preventing the relaxation of the throat muscles. The appliance needs to be worn every time you sleep.
People often think the appliance will be uncomfortable, but we have invested our energy in ensuring each one fits like a glove for our patients. When you visit our office, you will have several fittings to ensure you can breathe but are also comfortable and relaxed.
