Snoring & Sleep Apnea Treatment

Do you or your spouse sound like a bird, plane, or train while sleeping? Do you feel tired and poorly rested, even though you slept for an adequate amount of time? If so, you may suffer from obstructive sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea is a medical condition in which airway obstructions interrupt breathing during sleep. These breathing interruptions result in decreased levels of oxygen in the body, and the condition can even be life threatening. Men are more likely than women to suffer from obstructive sleep apnea, and your risk increases as you age. You may suffer from sleep apnea if you experience the following signs and symptoms:

  • Frequent, loud snoring
  • Excessive daytime drowsiness
  • Difficulty focusing
  • Insomnia or difficulty staying asleep
  • Morning headaches
  • Irritability and mood changes
  • Awakening with a sore or dry throat
  • Choking or gasping sensations during sleep

Tooth Acres offers sleep apnea treatment to Fort Wayne, Indiana, providing a variety of mouth appliances that silence the snorer and keep their airways open without the major discomfort of surgery or machines. This new option has revolutionized the ease of treating people who suffer the ill effects of being a terrible roommate and poor sleeper. Dr. Painter and Dr. Fisher both provide custom-made oral devices that prevent airway obstructions during sleep. You only wear the oral device at night, and we will ensure that it fits comfortably and effectively. If you believe that you may suffer from obstructive sleep apnea, we invite you to contact us today at Tooth Acres Dentistry.

We are proud providers of SomnoDent’s Sleep Apnea Oral Appliance!

Sleep Apnea

Do you snore excessively? Do you suffer from daytime fatigue? Do you awake during the night with shortness of breath? You may suffer from the life-threatening sleep disorder known as sleep apnea. About 1 in every 15 Americans suffer from sleep apnea and it is a problem that many don’t even realize they might have. But what does this have to do with dentistry? Because sleep apnea is caused by an airway obstruction, the disorder can be treated through the mouth. The Thorton adjustable positioner, or Tap appliance is one of the more popular ways to treat sleep apnea. When the jawbone yes lax, the tongue and soft tissue obstruct the airway. The tap appliance advances the jaw bone, allowing the air to flow freely and making sleep more restful throughout the night. If you think you might suffer from sleep apnea, talk to your dentist today about possible treatment options.
