Enjoy Healthy Sleep Without a CPAP

Apnea is a sleep disorder in which someone stops breathing when they fall asleep. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the most common type of this disorder. If you have OSA, your airways become closed off as your muscles relax when you fall asleep. People with this condition face a higher risk of high blood pressure, heart attacks, cardiovascular disease, diabetes complications, and other health issues.

Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machines are often the first treatment recommendation. Yet studies have shown that up to half of CPAP users give up on this treatment within a year. Your general dentist has a different option. Instead of forcing air into your airway, you can keep it clear with a custom oral appliance. This treatment:

  • Works by shifting the position of your lower jaw
  • Allows you to continue breathing and stops your snoring
  • Lets you reach the restful stages of deep sleep
  • Is less disruptive than a CPAP since there is no mask, tubing, or noise
  • Won’t dry out your throat like a CPAP can

Not sure if you should schedule a consultation? See your dentist if you have one or more of these symptoms: frequent breathing stoppages when you sleep, loud and persistent snoring, waking up with a dry mouth and/or headache, feeling tired when you wake up, or daytime sleepiness.

If these are common problems for you, then you should look into treatment for sleep apnea in Pasco, WA. Call Dental West at 509-588-0082 today to make an appointment.

Common Questions About Sleep Apnea

What is sleep apnea?

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that affects tens of millions of Americans. People who have sleep apnea can stop breathing up to hundreds of times each night. This condition can increase your risk of everything from high blood pressure to heart attacks and being in car accidents. The most common form of this disorder is obstructive sleep apnea, which Dr. Leavens can treat with a custom sleep appliance.

Why is sleep apnea bad?

Sleep apnea not only disrupts your sleep, but it has also been linked to several major health conditions. These include high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, and depression. Getting treatment early on can help you avoid these health issues, enjoy a better quality of life, and even potentially help you live longer.

How is sleep apnea treated?

CPAP therapy is often the first recommended treatment for sleep apnea. While CPAP is effective, many people have trouble getting used to having air blown through their mouth and nose. A good alternative treatment option is a custom-fit sleep appliance. It will fit comfortably in your mouth while you sleep, gently moving your lower jaw forward to keep your air passages open.
