Sleep gives our bodies much-needed rest and the opportunity to recharge every night. However, not all sleep offers these benefits. If you suffer from sleep apnea, you’re probably not getting the restful sleep you need. Apnea actually means “breathing cessation,” though frequent awakening—even if you’re not aware that you’re awake—and snoring can also occur. As a result, you may experience poor concentration, headaches, irritability, and daytime tiredness, all of which can interfere with your personal and professional activities. There are also more serious health complications that have been associated with sleep apnea.
We can help you avoid these dangers and enable you and others who share your home to get a good night’s sleep! Our award-winning multispecialty team provides nighttime mouthguards to patients who’ve had a positive sleep apnea diagnosis. Specially made oral appliances sometimes called mandibular advancement devices (MAD), have been proven effective in treating sleep apnea symptoms.
Sleep apnea complication include:
Type II diabetes
High blood pressure
Depression and anxiety
Sleep Apnea Treatment
The Dental Partners of Brookline team can alleviate your sleep apnea symptoms with an oral appliance that slips over your teeth and holds your jaw slightly forward during sleep. This prevents your soft tissues from collapsing against your airway, which causes snoring and interferes with respiration. Your mouthguard will be customized to fit you by the professionals here in our Brookline, MA office. With it, you can begin to enjoy a better quality of sleep, quieter nights, and more energetic days almost immediately. You’ll also avoid those sleep apnea-related health complications. Simply place your mouthguard in your mouth every night at bedtime to reap the benefits.
