Oral Appliances & Sleep Apnea

Published on March 14th, 2018

When you think about traditional dentistry work, helping sleep apnea usually doesn’t come to mind. If you’re in Chicago looking for a sleep apnea treatment, Art of Modern Dentistry may be the unexpected answer for which you were looking.

What is Sleep Apnea?

Those who suffer from sleep apnea experience extreme muscle relaxation in their sleep, which may cause soft tissue to block the airway and cause difficulty breathing. As you probably guessed, these issues make sleeping a challenge. Our Chicago sleep apnea treatment addresses this problem as if it’s left untreated, it can take major tolls on your overall health.

Sleep apnea may increase your risk of developing serious health issues like stroke, diabetes, heart disease, erectile dysfunction, high blood pressure, chronic acid reflux, and, in extremely severe cases, even death.

How Can Oral Appliances Help?

Oral devices help keep your jaw in place while you’re sleeping, which in turn helps keep the upper airway open. This resolves snoring issues as well as helps sleep apnea. Our dentists will make you a custom-made device based on what will work best for your scenario. There are over 100 FDA-approved appliances from which to choose.

All oral devices are easy to wear, portable, comfortable, quiet and effective. Our dentists will work in conjunction with your physician to address your sleep apnea and snoring issues. Don’t wait another day, we want to help fix your sleeping issues for good! Contact Art of Modern Dentistry for more information.
