SLEEP APNOEA LOWER PLENTY

If you wake up exhausted, feel fatigued and forgetful, have high blood pressure or headaches, experience a decreased libido or clench and grind your teeth, you may be having symptoms of sleep apnoea. Though serious if left untreated, we offer solutions for sleep apnoea at Majestic Smiles.

Understanding Sleep Apnoea

Obstructive sleep apnoea, or OSA, occurs when the tissues located at the back of the throat collapse on each other, effectively sealing off the airway that oxygen must travel through for you to breathe. Your spouse might have told you that you stop breathing in your sleep or you may snore, in addition to the symptoms listed above.

Understanding sleep apnoea is crucial for recognizing and addressing these symptoms and treating sleep apnoea effectively.

Sleep Apnoea Treatment

Our dentists have the expertise in understanding how your breathing and airways work to create a custom sleep appliance for you. These appliances will guide your jaw into a forwards position to give a natural opening to the airway, allowing for a full flow of oxygen during sleeping hours. The cumbersome CPAP machine may no longer be the only option for treatment.

Determining If You Have Sleep Apnoea

The first step is to speak with our team and schedule an appointment so that you can be evaluated for sleep apnoea. If so, we’ll refer you to a specialist in our network. A sleep study is necessary to understand if we can help you with a sleep appliance. Many of these studies can be completed conveniently and comfortable in your own home. Once the data has been gathered, we can create the appropriate treatment plan.

If you have already been diagnosed with sleep apnoea by another doctor, we can speak directly with them to determine if a sleep appliance is the best form of treatment for you.

The Dangers of Sleep Apnoea

Many people may be unaware that they have sleep apnoea. If left untreated, it has long-term consequences such as depression, a higher risk of injury due to fatigue and may increase the likelihood of high blood pressure and diabetes. You may also have wear on your teeth because of clenching from oxygen deprivation.
