At Casey Family Dental, we offer oral appliance therapy for non-invasive treatment of obstructive sleep apnea and loud snoring. A sleep apnea oral appliance is similar to a mouthguard. It is worn in the mouth during sleep. Casey Family Dental customizes the oral appliance to each patient to ensure comfort and fit when it is being used.
Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is a relatively common condition that occurs when the muscle tissues at the back of the throat relax and narrow during sleep, causing blockage of the airway passage interrupting normal breathing. People with diabetes, stroke, high blood pressure, heart failure, and other serious medical problems are prone to Sleep Apnea.
Common Symptoms of Sleep Apnea:
- Sleepy feeling during the day
- Unexplainable gaining of weight
- Concentration difficulties
- Choking sound during snoring
Oral Appliance Therapy
Casey Family Dental provides oral appliance therapy to treat our patients experiencing sleep apnea. Our custom-made oral appliances prevent the jaw and tongue from collapsing, keeping the airway passage open thereby preventing the occurrence of Sleep Apnea. With our oral appliance therapy (OAT) solution, our patients can finally get the rest that they deserve without interruptions.
If you’re suffering from sleep apnea, book your appointment immediately at (509) 293-5511.
