Emergency or Otherwise

At Able Dental, we understand the stress obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) places on your daily routine. We also have the knowledge to get you sleeping fully again. Obstructive sleep apnea is a common disorder that causes your airway to collapse during sleep, decreasing airflow to your lungs. This can happen several times each night, causing your brain to wake your body in order to start breathing again. Decreased oxygen and frequent awakenings can affect your health. Fortunately, it’s treatable.

Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is the most common therapy. CPAP keeps your airway open during the night by supplying a continuous stream of air to your lungs through a mask worn during sleep. The gentle pressure keeps your airway open, so you don’t stop breathing.
