Rediscover A Good Night’s Sleep with Snoring and Sleep Apnea Treatment

If you suffer from chronic snoring or live with someone who does, you know how rare and precious a peaceful night’s sleep can be. Excessive snoring may be the sign of a far more serious and potentially life-threatening condition called sleep apnea.

What Is Sleep Apnea?

People with sleep apnea involuntarily stop breathing for ten seconds or more periodically while they are sleeping. Over the course of a single night, a person may stop breathing upwards of 240 times in eight hours. Each time this occurs:

• The oxygen level in the blood can become lower, and the brain will signal your body to awaken.

• You will probably not remember these instances; however, the disruption of your sleep will affect your ability to function the next day.

• If left untreated, sleep apnea can lead to cardiovascular problems, headaches, chronic fatigue, and mood disorders.

• Relief from chronic snoring and sleep apnea is available at The Silverstrom Group.

Many people are surprised to learn that our dental professionals are experts in the treatment of these breathing disorders like sleep apnea. We have helped many of our patients get a good night’s sleep once again, and we would welcome the opportunity to do the same for you.

Signs of Sleep Anea

The following symptoms can indicate the presence of sleep apnea. If you notice one or more of these, contact our practice to speak with a sleep apnea dentist in Livingston NJ.

• Insomnia or difficulty sleeping
• Loud snoring at night
• Waking up at night short of breath
• Snorting or choking sounds during the night (indicating a restart of breathing)
• Headaches upon waking in the morning
• Falling asleep unintentionally during the day
• Extreme drowsiness throughout the day

Causes of Snoring and Sleep Apnea

Most cases of excessive snoring and sleep apnea are rooted in the same cause: a blockage of the airway between the nose and the voice box. A partial obstruction of this airway will result in snoring, while a complete obstruction will result in the temporary cessation of breathing that is the primary symptom of sleep apnea. The blockage occurs when the muscles that support your soft palate, tonsils, uvula, and tongue relax, causing the airway to narrow and these anatomical structures to fall back toward the throat.

Treatment of Snoring and Sleep Apnea

Before recommending a course of treatment, our sleep apnea dentist will collect information about your medical history and examine your mouth, jaw, and throat. We find that many of our patients respond well to intraoral appliances that help to keep the airway open during sleep. The device fits comfortably in the mouth, where it moves the jaw and tongue forward and causes the muscles of the airway to relax. This prevents the airway from becoming obstructed, allowing patients to sleep peacefully throughout the night. There are some rare instances of sleep apnea in which the brain simply fails to deliver the proper signals to the muscles involved in breathing. In these cases, our dentists will refer you to a sleep disorder specialist who can provide the treatment you need.
