Did you know that roughly 25 million adults across the nation suffer from obstructive sleep apnea? Are you among them? If you have been informed about your loud snoring or experience abrupt awakenings, or episodes of gasping for air in the middle of the night, you should consider having a medical evaluation and visiting our office for Lemon Grove sleep apnea treatment. Sleep apnea is a serious and potentially life-threatening disorder that occurs when an individual’s airway is obstructed by the soft tissues in their throat and mouth during sleep. Without proper care obstructive sleep apnea can have serious health consequences and lead to morning headaches, irritability, difficulty concentrating, and excessive daytime fatigue that can interfere with your normal daily routine.
If you have been diagnosed with mild to moderate sleep apnea, Lemon Grove Dental Care can provide oral appliance therapy to alleviate your symptoms and help you get a more restorative night’s sleep. Our Lemon Grove sleep apnea treatment is completely noninvasive, and simply requires the wearing of a customized oral appliance. Fitting into your mouth like an orthodontic retainer or a sports mouth guard, your sleep apnea appliance comfortably supports the jaw in a forward position, keeping your airway open while you sleep. Dr. Randall Sulzer is skilled and experienced in all facets of dental care and is trained in the provision of oral appliances for the treatment of both primary snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. You can rest assured that your oral health and well being are in the best of hands at the office of Lemon Grove Dental Care.
