What is Sleep Apnea?

Snoring Patient Sleeping

Sleep apnea is a common and potentially dangerous sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts at night.

Dentists can treat the most common type of sleep apnea, known as obstructive sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea happens when soft tissues block the airway during sleep. The tissues at the back of the throat most frequently cause obstructive sleep apnea when they block the airway. The condition can be brought on by obesity as well.

Sleep apnea may contribute to several serious health problems like atrial fibrillation, high blood pressure, and recurrent heart attacks when it goes untreated.

Signs You Need Sleep Apnea Treatment

  • Loud snoring: Many people with sleep apnea frequently wake their partners or family at night.
  • Feeling exhausted after a full night's sleep: You may feel that you have been awake all night.
  • Waking up gasping for air: You should address this frightening symptom immediately.
  • Morning headaches
  • Daytime sleepiness
  • Dry mouth upon waking
  • Insomnia

Procedures Offered

Dr. Park Family Dentistry can help you sleep better and reduce your risk of health complications. Our treatment options include 3D-printed sleep apnea devices and Botox.
3D Printed Devices
A sleep apnea device is similar to a night guard made to keep patients from grinding their teeth. They keep the jaw forward and prevent the soft tissues at the back of the throat from slumping during the night. They are more comfortable than CPAP machines.

Dr. Park Family Dentistry can fit and 3D print these devices in-house, saving you time and money.
Another treatment option for sleep apnea and snoring, in general, is injecting Botox into the soft palate. This treatment helps to keep the airway open without the need for appliances.
Solea Snoring Therapy
Solea snoring therapy significantly reduces snoring, leading to better sleep for the patients and their partners. This therapy is completed in less than 10 minutes, often without anesthetics. Although this therapy does not cure sleep apnea, it will help you achieve silent nights of sleep!

Frequently Asked Questions

How is snoring different from obstructive sleep apnea?
People with sleep apnea snore, but not everyone has sleep apnea. Since snoring is a significant symptom of obstructive sleep apnea, a physician or dentist should evaluate whether you have obstructive sleep apnea.
Who is most at risk for this condition?
Age is a factor, and men are more at risk than women. Overweight or obese people of any gender are vulnerable. People who drink alcohol or smoke excessively may be more likely to have sleep apnea.
Are oral appliances for sleep apnea comfortable?
Dentists make oral appliances as comfortable as possible, so they do not interfere with getting a good night's sleep. It is easier to become accustomed to a device than a CPAP machine.
