Enhance Your Well-Being With Our Sleep Apnea Solution

Obstructive sleep apnea is the most common form of the sleep disorder. If you have this type of apnea, the tongue and soft tissues in the back of your throat relax too much during sleep. This can obstruct your airways, causing brief breathing interruptions that force you to wake up momentarily to regain oxygen. This can happen many times throughout the night, disrupting your sleep and leaving you feeling exhausted in the morning.

Dr. Babin and his team want what is best for your overall health as much as your oral health. If you are concerned you have the disorder, simply mention your concerns during your next checkup. Your dentist will:

  • Assess your risk factors for sleep apnea
  • Discuss current symptoms to determine if a sleep test is necessary
  • Give you a take-home sleep test to confirm the condition
  • Send the test’s information to a sleep doctor who will analyze the results
  • Confirm your apnea diagnosis to move forward with treatment

Our practice can create a mandibular advancement device that will keep your airways open. It works by gently shifting your lower jaw forward. This will keep your airway clear while you sleep

Gain the Advantages of a Sleep Guard Over a CPAP Machine

While CPAP machines are a common treatment for sleep apnea, many patients find them cumbersome and uncomfortable. In contrast, our custom-made sleep guards offer several benefits:

  • Comfort – Sleep guards are lightweight, compact, and custom-fitted to your mouth. They are more comfortable to wear throughout the night compared to bulky CPAP masks.
  • Portability – Unlike CPAP machines that require electricity and are difficult to travel with, sleep guards are small and easy to pack. You can wear your sleep guard while on the go.
  • Quiet – CPAP machines can disturb both you and your partner’s sleep because of their noise. Sleep guards are silent, creating a more peaceful sleeping environment.
  • Easy Maintenance – Cleaning and maintaining a sleep guard is simple. It requires only daily cleaning with a toothbrush and mild soap. CPAP machines, on the other hand, have multiple components that need regular cleaning and replacement.
  • Greater Compliance – Due to their comfort and convenience, patients are more likely to consistently use their sleep guards. This leads to better treatment outcomes and improved overall health.

Don’t ignore signs of sleep apnea. This condition is associated with several serious health issues. By addressing your sleep apnea now, you can reduce your risk of health problem such as high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, and depression.
