Do you have a snoring problem? The Liberty dental team can help.
Studies show that twenty-four percent of American women and forty percent of American men have issues with snoring.
Snoring is often the first sign of a more serious health issue known as Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). Other common symptoms of OSA are weight issues, irritability, depression, consistently waking up tired, high blood pressure, daytime sleeping, and moodiness.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea
OSA is a sleep disorder occurring when the air passage becomes temporarily blocked, causing breathing to stop several times throughout the night. Patients experiencing OSA often wake up lacking energy and mental sharpness throughout the day. But the more pressing concern is that OSA has been shown to increase the risk of heart attack and stroke.
One of the most common solutions to OSA is a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machine. Though effective, CPAP machines are far from convenient and comfortable. Patients must wear a bulky facemask connected by a hose to an electric device that maintains positive air pressure while they sleep. Traveling with a CPAP, regular cleaning and maintenance, finding comfortable positions to sleep while wearing it, and other related issues make this choice less appealing to many.
Convenient and Comfortable Oral Appliance
At Liberty, we have a much more convenient option. Our FDA approved OSA device is more like a simple mouthguard used in athletics. This personalized oral appliance keeps the jaw in a forward position during sleep, allowing the airway to remain open. It is small, easily portable, quiet, comfortable, and highly effective. Uninterrupted breathing through the night with this device leads to deeper sleep, quieter sleep, waking up with more energy, and better focus throughout the day.
