Sleep Apnea and Snoring Relief
Braydich Dental Offers Sleep Apnea Treatment Without the Need for the CPAP.
What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea involves complete airway blockage for periods of 10 seconds or longer repeatedly during a sleep session. While snoring is not dangerous, sleep apnea increases a person’s risk for stroke, heart attack, daytime fatigue, irritability, and other issues.
Did you know snoring and sleep apnea are not the same condition?
Snoring is simply the sound that occurs when soft tissues in the mouth and throat vibrate as a person breathes.
How we can help?
After your sleep apnea diagnosis, Braydich Dental can discuss comfortable treatment options, including a custom sleep guard that can prevent airflow blockage. Sleep apnea should be diagnosed by a sleep lab. Our team can recommend a reputable facility!
Traditionally, a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) appliance is the gold standard for sleep apnea treatment. However, many patients do not respond well to CPAP because of a poor fit, claustrophobia or discomfort. For these patients, and others, a sleep guard may be recommended. Braydich Dental can create a custom sleep guard to hold your lower jaw slightly forward, which prevents soft tissues from blocking airflow. Many patients find relief from this non-invasive solution.
Braydich Dental wants to help relieve your sleep apnea. For more information, please schedule an appointment with your dentist, and we will be in touch with you shortly.
