Improve Nightly Breathing With A Sleep Appliance

How is your sleep quality affecting your overall quality of life? People who struggle to breathe while at rest can have difficulties with snoring that make them self-conscious. Prolonged issues with air flow can turn into trouble with obstructive sleep apnea, a condition that can take a serious toll on your well-being as time passes. Our Livonia/Detroit, MI dentist’s office can help you manage this problem. What may surprise you is that we can actually help by offering a custom oral appliance for treatment even if you already struggle with sleep apnea. As an alternative to care with a CPAP machine, appliance therapy can make important treatment for nightly breathing difficulties easier for you!

Is Poor Nightly Breathing Causing You To Snore And Suffer Sleep Apnea?

When soft tissues in your throat partially block your airways, you can make snoring sounds as air fights to pass through these passages. When your ability to breathe is cut off for extended periods of time, your body will have to wake itself up to deal with the loss of oxygen. This persistent interference, obstructive sleep apnea, can raise your blood pressure, and its disruption of your rest cycle can lead to many problems associated with sleep apnea. In time, you can have difficulty managing your mood and focus, struggle with low energy, and have a harder time managing your mental and physical health! Taking on this issue will be important. With the aid of a custom oral appliance, you can rest successfully and put your sleep apnea struggles behind you.

Using A Custom Oral Appliance To Improve Your Breathing While You Sleep

People who suspect they are struggling with sleep apnea may assume they will need to start wearing a CPAP mask and using a CPAP machine to maintain proper breathing at night. However, if your trouble stems from physical airway obstructions, we can recommend oral appliance therapy. Your appliance will keep your breathing passages open by changing the position of your jaw. In making this change, we can stop the physical interference from occurring, which leaves your air flow undisturbed. This can also help you stop snoring, which means you can rest quietly and avoid disturbing a partner with loud or labored breathing.
