Our Wayne NJ best dentist, Dr. Ross Lesser, will be able to provide you with a sleep apnea appliance so that you will not need to suffer anymore with sleep apnea symptoms.
Many patients come to our dental practice for treatment of sleep apnea. The most common type of sleep apnea is obstructive sleep apnea. This is when the back of the throat is restricted from having a clear airflow during sleep. To treat this, sleep apnea appliances can be prescribed by our dentists to keep this from occurring. This appliance will stop the tongue and soft tissues in the back of throat from closing and blocking the free airflow as you sleep. This type of sleep apnea appliance is noninvasive, comfortable to use, and easy to carry with you when traveling. Our Wayne NJ best dentist has prescribed the sleep apnea appliance for many of his patients with great results.
Patients are able to use sleep apnea appliances for treatment for snoring as well as for obstructive sleep apnea. This sleep appliance is custom fit to each individual patient. When you are no longer suffering from the symptoms of sleep apnea you will feel restored, and your health will be revitalized. Many times patients with sleep apnea wake up with headaches, or are extremely drowsy during the day. Sleep apnea has also been related with some serious medical conditions. When you use oral appliance therapy for treatment of sleep apnea you will enjoy its convenience. Above all it is comfortable and easy to wear unlike prior sleep apnea treatments. Our dentists will be able to provide you all the information you need about your new oral appliance as well as how to maintain the appliance and keep it clean. Our dentists may want to schedule a sleep study for you to verify that the treatment is working for you.
