Sleep apnea is serious condition in which a person stops breathing repeatedly as they sleep at night. People with sleep apnea may also snore heavily, choke, and gasp. It can leave you not only tired during the day; it also puts you at risk for complications like heart disease and depression. The good news is that treatment is available from Town and Country Cosmetic Dentistry and Implant Center.
There are two basic types of sleep apnea, obstructive sleep apnea and central sleep apnea. Either can affect anyone at any age, although overweight men forty and older are the most common patients.
One of the most common treatments for sleep apnea is a mask called Continuous Positive Airway Pressure, or CPAP. It it very effective, but because it is made to fit over the nose and/or mouth, many people find it uncomfortable.
At Town and Country Cosmetic Dentistry and Implant Center, we have an alternative that is smaller, effective, and comfortable. Most patients find relief using it.
