Sleep Apnea Therapy for Westford, MA
Do you endure restless nights and sleepiness during the day? Do you feel irritated, forgetful and sometimes doze off when no one is looking? Does your sleeping partner complain that you snore or breathe erratically? If any of these symptoms describe you, sleep apnea may be to blame. Fortunately, obstructive sleep apnea may be able to be treated non-surgically with a dentist-prescribed oral splint.
Obstructive sleep apnea, called OSA, inhibits deep sleep. The soft tissues of the mouth and throat block free airflow and when a person cannot breathe, the brain kicks in and says, “Wake up!” So even if you stay asleep, if you cannot get the refreshing deep (REM) sleep that your body needs, you will feel tired and irritable during the day.
Dr. Dheeraj Pamidimukkala and Dr. Shivani Patel often prescribe a custom-made oral splint to hold the jaw forward and allow a peaceful night’s rest. If you are ready for solid sleep, let our dentists evaluate your case to determine whether an oral splint will relieve your sleep apnea symptoms in Westford, Massachusetts.
