What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a condition that causes you to stop breathing for some time while you’re asleep, forcing you to wake up for air. The awakenings are brief, so you may not remember them afterward. However, they can occur as often as 100 times every hour, meaning you barely spend any time in the deepest, most restful stages of sleep. The most common form of sleep apnea is obstructive sleep apnea, where the airway is blocked by relaxed oral tissues.
Oral Appliance Therapy
The purpose of an oral appliance is to hold the lower jaw and tongue in a comfortable forward position so that the airway stays open while you’re asleep. Our dental office favors the Lamberg SleepWell Appliance, which has a simple design that is easy for you to clean and adjust for your needs. When you come to Dr. Lopez for sleep apnea therapy, we can provide a personalized appliance based on impressions of your smile.
