What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a disorder that causes you to stop breathing during your sleep. There are two main types of sleep apnea: obstructive and central.
Central sleep apnea occurs when the brain doesn’t send signals to the muscles in the airway, causing it to collapse and block airflow. This type of apnea can be caused by health conditions like diabetes, heart disease, and certain medications (like sedatives).
If you struggle with obstructive sleep apnea, you know firsthand how disruptive and frustrating it can be. This condition occurs when the tissues in your throat relax too much during sleep, leading to blocked airflow and potentially serious health consequences.
But there’s good news: you can alleviate symptoms and improve your quality of life with the right treatment. Premier Dentistry specializes in providing top-notch dental services for those struggling with sleep apnea.
The Connection Between Sleep Apnea and Oral Health
Sleep apnea is a serious condition in which the airway becomes blocked during sleep. This causes you to stop breathing for short periods, leading to fatigue and other health issues. The effects of sleep apnea on oral health are significant, as they include:
- Increased risk of gum disease
- Tooth decay
- Dry mouth (xerostomia) due to lack of saliva production
Premier Dentistry offers several treatment options for those suffering from sleep apnea.
We are happy to go over the many solutions for sleep apnea. All of which may not be listed here.
Oral appliance therapy: An oral appliance is worn in your mouth at night that helps keep the airway open while you sleep by gently pushing forward on the lower jaw (mandible). This helps prevent obstruction of breathing during sleep by keeping the soft tissue at the back of the throat open so air can pass freely into the lungs instead of being blocked by collapsing tissues in the throat area or the tongue falling back against the roof of the mouth blocking passage through narrowed airways.
CPAP therapy: Continuous positive air pressure machines provide constant airflow through the nose or mouth while sleeping, providing an alternative way to treat obstructive sleep apnea by delivering steady levels of pressurized oxygen into the lungs rather than relying solely on gravity alone.
