Do you or someone you love suffer from a sleep disorder?
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.
How do you treat sleep apnea?
A sleep apnea oral appliance is a custom-fit dental appliance developed for the treatment of snoring and mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea. In certain cases, it may be an effective, comfortable, and durable alternative to CPAP therapy or corrective surgery.
How do you stop being a mouth breather?
If you can only snore with your mouth open then you are a “mouth breather”. An oral appliance or nasal strips will help to keep your mouth closed and encourage you to breathe correctly through your nasal airway. Try this “nose” test: Looking in a mirror, press the side of one nostril to close it.
