The health of you and your family is important to us at Whole Dental Wellness. While your dental health can affect your overall health, it is essential to your health to get proper sleep. If you are having issues sleeping and want to discover if you have Objective Sleep Apnea (OSA), schedule your Birmingham sleep treatment consultation today.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) occurs when there is a partial or complete blockage of your airway while you are sleeping. OSA is a sleep disorder that affects your breathing and will cause other health concerns if left untreated.
While you sleep, the soft tissue in the back of your throat relaxes and blocks your airway. When your airway is blocked, it often causes you to wake up repeatedly, gasp for breath in your sleep, or do heavy snoring. When you awake the next day, you often feel unrested. Other health risks of OSA include:
Sleep Apnea is a serious health concern and life-threatening condition.
In Birmingham, discover your sleep treatment options at Whole Dental Wellness. We offer our patients a sleep test to determine if OSA is causing sleepless nights and snoring. Sleep Apnea Symptoms include:
Our highly skilled sleep dentist has extensive training with sleep apnea, TMJ, and dental sleep medicine. Your total health is important to us. We want you to find the sleep treatment answers to get you feeling better and sleeping through the night.
After your sleep test and being correctly diagnosed with moderate OSA, we can provide a sleep guard device that is designed to help you breathe while you sleep.
Our sleep guard is similar to a sports mouthguard but is customized to adjust your jaw to a different position while you sleep. You will be able to breathe better while sleeping and stop snoring. Our sleep apnea patients have incredible results with their sleep guard.
Patients who use a sleep guard instead of a CPAP use their device more consistently because a sleep guard is easier to use. Other sleep guard benefits include:
While the CPAP device is more effective in treating sleep apnea, the sleep guard is a viable solution for patients who need an affordable and effective option.
