Grand Prairie Sleep Apnea Therapy
Helping You Breathe Right through the Night
If you wake up after a full night’s sleep not feeling rested, you may be suffering from sleep apnea. This condition is considered to be a severe sleep disorder that currently affects about 25 million Americans. Other symptoms include loud snoring, insomnia, depression, anxiety, daytime sleepiness, headaches, irritability, sexual dysfunction, and memory loss.
You might be thinking, “Why is a dentist talking about sleep apnea?” The reason is that one form of sleep apnea therapy in Grand Prairie involves wearing an oral appliance that looks like a mouthguard. By wearing this device as you sleep, your lower jaw will be pushed forward, which opens up the airways to enable normal breathing. The result is sleep apnea being reduced or eliminated.
Contact Grand Prairie Family Dental, PLLC today to learn more about how oral appliances can prevent sleep apnea.
Our Role in Sleep Apnea Therapy
The process for treating sleep apnea with an oral device begins by coming in for a consultation with Dr. Behrooz Khademazad. During this evaluation, we will assess your mouth, teeth, and TMJ joints to determine if this type of sleep apnea therapy is right for you.
Those who appear to be good candidates for oral appliance therapy can expect the following:
- We will create a model of your teeth
- We will use the model to design a customized oral device that perfectly fits your mouth
- You will begin wearing the oral appliance when you sleep to prevent sleep apnea symptoms
- Our team will work closely with you to ensure that the therapy is working and alleviating your symptoms
