What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is recognized as persistent stops in breathing while you sleep. This is the result of your muscles relaxing, leading to a blockage in the airway. The brief lack of oxygen produces excess stress on the body, which may result in hypertension or daytime sleepiness. Sleep apnea could also lead to memory loss, mood changes, and weight gain. Dr. Tracy Provenghi is an expert in the most effective dental solutions for sleep apnea at her office in El Paso, TX. She offers personalized options, like oral appliance therapy (OAT), using custom-fit night guards. If you are seeking treatment for sleep apnea and would like to learn more about dependable treatments to help you get relief, schedule an appointment at Awesome Smiles today.
How Is Sleep Apnea Treated?
Sleep apnea therapy at Awesome Smiles involves using oral appliance therapy, which can be an extremely effective dental treatment for sleep apnea. This involves wearing a custom-made night guard device in your mouth at night, which is similar to a retainer or mouth guard. However, the difference is that rather than guarding your teeth against injury, it gently pulls the jaw into a forward position to keep your airway open. During your appointment at our El Paso, TX office, you can discuss your symptoms and concerns with Dr. Provenghi, followed by an examination of your mouth, teeth, jaw, and airway. Oral x-rays will be taken so we can create impressions of your teeth for your appliance. There are many different night guard devices on the market today so we will work with you to ensure you receive the right one for your needs.
