Sleep Apnea Treatment
If you are looking for a non-invasive general dentistry solution to address your snoring and sleep apnea, turn to Marietta Dental Professionals in East Cobb. Sleep apnea is a serious condition that involves several brief pauses in breathing throughout the night. This can cause one to snore loudly or wake up gasping for air. While sleep apnea symptoms can certainly keep your partner awake, they are detrimental to your own quality of sleep as well as your overall health.
Patients who suffer from sleep apnea often wake up tired and suffer from daytime fatigue and poor concentration. It can also jeopardize their overall health, as untreated sleep apnea has been linked to high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, weight gain and other serious health issues.
Marietta Dental Professionals is a modern dental practice that is committed to helping patients reduce or eliminate snoring and dangerous sleep apnea episodes. We understand that not all patients can tolerate or afford surgical procedures or CPAP machines. Therefore, we are proud to give East Cobb residents a valued alternative to effectively treat their sleep apnea through customized oral appliance therapy.
Relief from Snoring
Snoring can wreak havoc on you and your partner’s quality of sleep. However, it is not something you have to live with. Fortunately, your snoring habit can be treated with the use of a custom oral appliance or nighttime mouthguard. At Marietta Dental Professionals, we are proud to make oral appliances here in our East Cobb office. We take meticulous measurements of your bite and use top-ranked materials to ensure your appliance delivers long-term custom comfort.
An oral appliance is proven to treat snoring caused by sleep apnea or obstructed sleep apnea (OSA). The cessation of breathing that occurs in sleep apnea patients happens when the throat muscles relax and the walls of surrounding tissues collapse inwards. By using oral appliance therapy, the jaw is shifted to a position that allows your airways to remain open and clear of obstruction. In result, snoring is greatly reduced or eliminated altogether.
