If you can’t remember the last time you felt like you woke up feeling rested and refreshed, then it might be time to do something about your dangerous sleep apnea condition.

Those are all common symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea. It’s nothing to take lightly, but it can be treated effectively at our Attleboro, MA dentist office. To learn about our sleep dentistry treatment options, call 774-225-0618 to set up a consultation at Attleboro Family Dental Care.
Bring Your Sleep Apnea Nightmare To An End
Simply put: sleep apnea is bad for your love life, and even worse for your health.
People with sleep apnea are known to face a greater risk of a variety of issues. These include (but are not limited to) strokes, heart attacks, and cardiovascular disease. They are more likely to have high blood pressure as well. There have even been a few high-profile deaths linked to sleep apnea: legendary musician Jerry Garcia and all-star athlete Reggie White, for example.
Here’s something else to consider: since sleep deprivation is a side effect of untreated sleep apnea, people with this condition are more likely to experience daytime sleepiness. Car crashes, and on the job accidents could result from what you may dismiss as simple snoring.
By doing something about your condition, rather than nothing, you’ll be doing yourself, and everyone you come in close contact with, a huge favor. That’s where we come in, by creating a special oral appliance that allows you to rest easy, so to speak.
A Viable Treatment From The Dentist
Here’s the thing: sleep apnea is a condition that can cause a person to actually stop breathing, not once, but hundreds of times each and every night. That’s a staggering statistic. With obstructive sleep apnea, this happens because someone’s airway becomes blocked when they drift off to la-la-land.
In order to address this situation, you have to find a way to keep your airway open. Many patients are given a CPAP machine to get the job done. However, this involves wearing a mask that pushes air into your mouth or nose to keep your airway open. When used correctly, it will allow you to continue breathing so you can get the deep sleep that you need. That said, it is very invasive, and it is noisy at night.
Our oral appliance won’t do you like that. It’s designed to shift the position of your lower jaw. This keeps your airway open, so you can keep breathing. That lets you reach the stages of deep sleep. It also means you’ll snore a lot less (if at all), so your spouse can get a good night’s rest as well. There won’t be any machines or Darth Vader noises required to get back on track, and stay there.
