You May Be Suffering from Sleep Apnea

What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a common medical condition where a person stops breathing for dozens (or even hundreds) of times every night due to airway blockage. Each time this happens C02 builds up, your blood pressure rises, and your body startles you awake to restart proper breathing.

This is a very dangerous condition with negative consequences for both your quality of life and your health. Serious cases of sleep apnea may reduce your life expectancy by up to 10 years.

Thankfully, with proper sleep apnea treatment, you can reduce your risk and limit (or completely stop) your snoring.

Our Mason sleep apnea dentist is here to help you sleep restfully and safely again.

Did you know: Almost 20 million people in the US have sleep apnea, but many don’t even know it!

Those most common risk factors include:

  • Men 40+ years old
  • Overweight
  • Smokers
  • Those with a family history of sleep apnea

If you think you may be suffering from sleep apnea, you owe it to yourself to find out for sure.

Based on the severity of your sleep apnea symptoms, sleep apnea test results, and the recommendations of your physician, your sleep apnea treatment may include:

CPAP Machine

The CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) machine is the gold standard for relieving dangerous and severe sleep apnea symptoms. A CPAP machine is worn over your face at night. The machine gently adjusts your lower jaw, opening your airway and preventing obstruction.


Oral Appliance

Best for those with mild to moderate symptoms or for those who cannot tolerate a CPAP machine, our oral sleep apnea appliance. Worn like a retainer or mouth guard, this appliance keeps your airway open all night long. Sleep apnea appliances are small, comfortable, and custom-made to fit your mouth.
