Couple sleeping peacefully after sleep apnea treatment in 85022If you or your partner snore excessively or wake up feeling fatigued and then drag through the rest of your day, you may have sleep apnea.

The first line of treatment for severe sleep apnea is a CPAP machine that helps keep the airway open while you sleep. But many patients don’t use the CPAP as prescribed because they find it bulky, noisy, and uncomfortable to wear.

However, sleep apnea treatment is a non-invasive approach that is appropriate for patients with mild sleep apnea or those who can’t tolerate the CPAP.

What is Sleep Apnea?

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a sleep-related breathing disorder. When you fall asleep, your tongue naturally falls back toward your throat. Sometimes this movement blocks your airway to the point that you can’t breathe freely.

Since you can’t breathe, your body is deprived of oxygen, and the result is a loud gasping snort as you finally catch a breath. For some patients, this can occur hundreds of times a night, with each episode lasting ten seconds or longer.

While our dentist office in Phoenix does not provide sleep apnea treatment anymore, we would be happy to refer you to a nearby specialist! Give Dental Care at Moon Valley a call if you have any questions or would like to schedule a dental exam.
