Are you exhausted all the time despite going to bed earlier and earlier? Have you been told you snore loudly? Do you feel tired even when you sleep for 7-9 hours? If so, then you may have sleep apnea. This disorder cannot only rob you of your rest, but your health as well, but it is very treatable. At Kitt Dental, we can provide custom-made mouthguards that allow patients to sleep deeply, stop snoring, and wake up each day feeling energized and focused.
Oral appliance therapy involves a patient wearing a special mouthguard to bed that gently shifts the jaw into a more forward position. This opens up the airway and prevents the blockages in breathing that are characteristic of sleep apnea. As a result, a person is able to sleep uninterrupted, getting better rest, and they stop snoring as well (which is great news for anyone around them). Even better, oral appliance therapy is much easier to use than a CPAP machine and requires practically no maintenance by comparison.
