Our Treatments Help You Get a Good Night’s Sleep.
Sleep apnea affects more than 20 million Americans nationwide. Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) can lead to hypertension, heart attack, stroke, depression, muscle pain, fibromyalgia, morning headaches, and excessive daytime sleepiness. If you are not using your CPAP, Brewer Dental Center may have an option that will work for you. We offer a small oral device that can have you breathing easy and getting a better night’s sleep.
We have helped numerous patients in Billings find a solution to sleep apnea. This condition can have a serious impact on your health, so if you often feel lethargic and suffer from loud snoring, it is important to speak with your doctor as soon as possible.
A SIMPLE SOLUTION FOR OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNEA
Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when muscles in the back of the throat relax and obstruct your airways. An oral device, similar to a mouth guard, can reposition the mouth and uphold these tissues, allowing you to breathe freely again while you sleep.
You will need to visit a dentist to have a custom sleep apnea device fitted for your mouth. Once the piece has been created, you will need to visit your dentist again so they can ensure the device fits properly and achieves the desired result.
HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE SLEEP APNEA?
Sleep apnea can affect anyone at any age, but it is most common in men over the age of 40. People who struggle with obesity are also at an increased risk of sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is often accompanied by loud snoring. If someone in your household has complained about your snoring, it could be a sign that you are suffering from sleep apnea.
The following symptoms may indicate that you are suffering from sleep apnea:
- Loud snoring
- Lack of energy during the day, even if you got a full night’s rest
- You frequently wake up with a sore throat
- You frequently suffer morning headaches
