Sleep Apnea Q & A

What is sleep apnea?

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder characterized by your breathing stopping repeatedly while you sleep. You may suffer from this potentially serious condition if you:

  • Snore loudly at night
  • Wake up tired even after a full night’s sleep
  • Wake up gasping for air 
  • Are told that you stop breathing in your sleep
  • Have trouble staying asleep
  • Have difficulty staying awake during the day
  • Are irritable
  • Wake up with a dry throat
  • Struggle to focus during waking hours

You’re more likely to develop sleep apnea if you’re overweight, have a narrowed airway, are older, are male, or have a family history of sleep apnea.

You’re also at a higher risk for sleep apnea if you smoke, suffer from chronic nasal congestion, or use tranquilizers, alcohol, or sedatives.

How can a dentist help with my sleep apnea?

Dentists like Dr. Olson, who is certified in dental sleep medication, can work with your physician or ENT to diagnose your sleep apnea and help you find the right treatment. Dr. Olson recommends you always try noninvasive treatment before exploring your surgical options. One of the most widely used sleep apnea treatment options that we recommend is the TAP® 3 oral appliance.

Oral appliances

TAP 3 and other oral appliances fit into your mouth, where they help hold your lower jaw in the forward position as you sleep. Keeping the jaw like this stops your tongue from falling backward and blocking your airway. For comfort and security, the practice designs oral appliances customized to your bite.

If you think you have sleep apnea, reach out to us at Restora Dental Arts for evaluation and treatment. Schedule your appointment online or over the phone today.
