Creating Custom Appliances To Treat Sleep Apnea

Nightly snoring and breathing difficulties can be more harmful to your well-being than you realize, as it could be a sign that you have issues with sleep apnea. This is a problem that can rob you of the ability to properly rest, something that can lead to more difficulties in your daily life like fatigue, a lack of focus, trouble with high blood pressure, and more! Fortunately, treatment can be secured through your Livonia/Detroit, MI dentist’s office. What you can find is that obstructive sleep apnea—a condition caused by physical obstructions of your airways—does not require a CPAP machine for care. Instead, we can use digital imaging technology to arrange for the creation of a custom oral appliance that will help you keep your airways clear throughout the night.

What Can You Do About Nightly Difficulties With Sleep Apnea?

Living with untreated sleep apnea means losing the ability to breathe steadily through the night. Beyond causing you to snore, this condition will interrupt your rest cycle and ultimately limit your ability to see the benefits you should enjoy from sleep. As you continue to ignore this problem, you will have to contend with issues like a loss of energy, the inability to focus, worsened short-term memory, and even physical problems that cause discomfort and make you vulnerable to health risks! Fortunately, when you are treating the problem, you can keep your breathing steady and once again remain at rest so that you complete your rest cycles.

Using Imaging Technology To Produce Aligners That Are Custom-Made To Help You Breathe Properly At Night

For patients who struggle with obstructive sleep apnea, our practice can provide relief with a custom oral appliance. A custom guard can serve as a substitute for a CPAP machine, as it will help you keep your airways clear and breathe soundly through the night. To provide personalized guards that fit comfortably and provide the support for your breathing, we can use imaging technology to capture important measurements. Removing the need to create a physical mold of your oral structures makes the planning process more comfortable. It can also yield highly detailed information to ensure that your appliance is effective at caring for you. As long as you have it in place, you can keep your airways clear by preventing obstructions from soft tissues in your throat.
