Sleep Apnea Treatment

Obstructive sleep apnea is one of the most widely occurring sleep disorders. It is a chronic condition characterized by repeated pauses in breathing leading to a reduction in oxygen levels. These breathing pauses may disrupt your sleep throughout the night.

Snoring is a harsh sound that is made when the tissue on the roof of your mouth vibrates against the throat. As you sleep, the tongue, the throat tissues and the muscles lining your airway relax. This causes the air passage to become narrower, and the tissues vibrate to create a snoring sound. Snoring is often an indication of sleep apnea. Some of the other symptoms of sleep apnea include choking or gasping sounds during sleep, periodic pauses in breathing, restless sleep, significant daytime sleepiness, poor memory and concentration problems.

It is extremely important to treat obstructive sleep apnea. Untreated sleep apnea increases the risk of serious health problems such as:

  • Increased blood pressure
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Chronic acid reflux

At Chesterfield Hilltown Dental, we specialize in custom-made oral appliances to treat sleep apnea. An oral appliance fits like an orthodontic retainer or a dental mouth guard and can be worn in the mouth while sleeping. Wearing an oral appliance helps the upper airway remain open by supporting the jaw in a forward position.

For more information about oral appliance therapy for sleep apnea and snoring, please call our office at (636) 206-4656. We are located at 130 Hilltown Village Center, Chesterfield, MO 63017 .
