So What is Sleep Disordered Breathing?
Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB) is a condition characterized by repeated episodes of Hypopnea (under-breathing) and Apnea (not breathing) during sleep; it is a condition that may be life -threatening. It is often distinguished by short pauses in breathing during sleep, SDB is often characterized by a loud snoring and a choking sensation.
Did you know that these unintentional pauses in your breathing in any given night be may be as high as 100 episodes or more in just a 1 hour period alone?
It is important that sleep apnea is recognized early because it is directly linked to serious health risks. It can reduce normal blood oxygen levels, which in turn may lead to coronary artery disease, excessive daytime sleepiness, irregular heartbeats, high blood pressure, heart attack or even stroke! This condition is also attributable to many other conditions and symptoms. To learn more about Sleep Apnea we suggest you visit the Wiki Site for more information.
How Do We Treat These Conditions?
Many Sleep Disorders can be treated today by the use of Oral Appliances. These Oral Appliances are placed in the mouth and are worn much like an Orthodontic Appliance or Sports Mouth Protector. They are worn to prevent the collapse of the tongue and soft tissues in the back of the throat so that the airway stays open during sleep. These appliances promote adequate air intake and help to provide normal sleep in people who snore and have a medical condition known as sleep apnea.
We use a custom made device called a SomnoMed MAS. This device consists of upper and lower dental plates. It has a unique patented fin-couplin component, which allows normal mouth opening and closing. The SomnoMed features incremental and adjustable levels of lower jaw advancement, which improves the effectiveness and comfort-level of treatment as we only have to move the jaw as far as required to alleviate snoring and reduce OSA (Obstructive Sleep Apnea).
It is made from durable, fade-proof acrylic and is covered by a two year manufacturer’s warranty.
Remember only by booking your Complimentary Appointment with Nosehill Dental will you have the normal $85 initial Consultation fee waived.
