Sleep Apnea Therapy for Westford, MA
Do you endure restless nights and sleepiness during the day? Do you feel irritated, forgetful, and sometimes doze off when no one's looking? Does your sleeping partner complain that you snore or breathe erratically? If any of these symptoms describe you, sleep apnea may be to blame. Fortunately, obstructive sleep apnea may be able to be treated non-surgically with a dentist-prescribed oral splint.
Obstructive sleep apnea, called OSA, inhibits deep sleep. The soft tissues of the mouth and throat block free airflow, and when a person can't breathe, the brain kicks in and says, "Wake up!" So even if you stay asleep, if you can't get the refreshing deep (REM) sleep that your body needs, you’ll feel tired and irritable during the day.
Drs. Dheeraj and Dr. Levenbaum often prescribe a custom-made oral splint to hold the jaw forward and allow a peaceful night's rest. If you’re ready for solid sleep, let us evaluate your case to determine whether an oral splint will relieve your sleep apnea symptoms.
