Your brain and body’s ability to function properly depends on getting a full night’s rest. If you don’t get enough sleep, then the risks of daytime fatigue have the potential to be life-threatening. Sleep apnea is a serious and potentially life-threatening condition that occurs when the soft tissues and muscles in the back of the throat relax, restricting the airway. It can cause loud snoring, abrupt awakenings or gasping in the middle of the night and affects nearly 25 million adults in the United States. Individuals with 43065 sleep apnea are often irritable and have difficulty concentrating due to interrupted sleep. Luckily, at Powell Dental Group we’ve helped many patients suffering from sleep apnea reclaim a good night’s sleep.
In many cases of mild to moderate 43065 sleep apnea the recommended treatment plan for sleep often consists of an oral appliance that our dentist can provide. The custom-fabricated device fits like a retainer and is designed to keep the soft tissues in your throat from obstructing your airway. Our oral appliances are easily portable and simple to care for. Our team of professionals will guide you on how to properly wear and maintain your appliance so that you can enjoy a better night’s sleep. As your Louisville dentist we take a proactive approach to our patients’ oral health and will usually recommend periodic assessment to inspect the fit of the appliance and make sure it’s functioning at its best.
