Sleep Apnea Treatment

Sleep apnea can cause fatigue, confusion, and a number of health problems including high blood pressure, diabetes, or stroke. Treating sleep apnea is important and can help your overall health, and allow you to get a better night’s sleep. At Turlock Dental Care we offer a take-home sleep study for patients that have sleep apnea, as well as custom sleep appliances to help prevent snoring and sleep apnea.

Benefits of Sleep Apnea Treatment

Hate Your CPAP?

 

Turlock Dental Care offers sleep appliances as a great alternative to CPAP machines. Our appliances help patients who are tired of using a CPAP machine during the night and are looking for an easy solution that is less cumbersome. Depending on your condition and the results of your sleep test, Turlock Dental Care offers both mouthguards and mandibular advancement devices to treat sleep apnea and stop snoring.

 

Mouthguards

 

Our custom sleep apnea mouthguards help to reduce tissue collapse and snoring to allow you to sleep comfortably. Mouthguards can help to position the tongue properly and avoid the tongue falling back into the throat. This helps patients to sleep soundly without snoring or gasping for air.

 

Mandibular Advancement Device

 

Mandibular advancement devices (MADs) are a great CPAP alternative and help to move the jaw and tongue forward to reduce throat collapse and treat sleep apnea and snoring. This method is extremely effective and is custom-made to fit your mouth. Mandibular devices are made of a soft flexible material that is comfortable when worn during sleep.

The Dangers of Sleep Apnea

 

Sleep apnea is a dangerous condition that causes you to have interrupted sleep and affects your overall health. During sleep apnea, your breathing starts and stops while sleeping and, in some cases, the throat can be obstructed and this can block the airway. In many patients, the soft tissue in the throat relaxes and this reduces the size of the airway causing snoring and breathing problems.

 

Sleep apnea can cause fatigue, confusion, and a number of health problems including high blood pressure, diabetes, or stroke. Treating sleep apnea is important and can help your overall health, and allow you to get a better night’s sleep. At Turlock Dental Care we offer a take-home sleep study for patients that have sleep apnea, as well as custom sleep appliances to help prevent snoring and sleep apnea.

Do I Have Sleep Apnea?

 

Patients that have sleep apnea experience excessive snoring and interrupted sleep. Many patients gasp for air and wake up multiple times during the night. If you have any of these symptoms you can benefit from our take-home sleep test to help collect information while you sleep, and assist our doctors in treating your sleep apnea. Knowing the symptoms of sleep apnea can help you realize you may need help. Treating sleep apnea can improve your sleeping habits and your overall health.

 

Symptoms of Sleep Apnea

 

  • Breathing starts and stops while sleeping
  • Gasping for air during sleep
  • Snoring loudly
  • Dry mouth
  • Consistent headache
  • Daytime sleepiness
  • Loss of concentration
  • Fatigue

 

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, we can get you started with our screening process. The screening process consists of a few questionnaires that help to collect medical history, sleep patterns, diet, lifestyle, and symptoms to help us better treat your condition. You will be sent home with our sleep test to further collect information while you sleep, and the results will help our doctors develop a customized treatment plan.
