Chronic Snoring. Low energy. Irritability. These exhausting symptoms could indicate more than a poor night’s sleep. You may be experiencing what is known as obstructive sleep apnea, or OSA.
You might be hesitant to pursue a sleep study, because most people think OSA, can only be treated with a (CPAP) device. Many people would rather deal with the negative effects of OSA than use the CPAP machine and mask to sleep for the rest of their lives. Learn more here.
But there’s a less invasive alternative. If you’ve been diagnosed with OSA, your sleep problems could be solved with custom fit oral appliance from Stephens & Gatewood Dentistry. Unlike a CPAP machine, an oral appliance for treatment of mild or moderate sleep apnea are:
- easy to wear
- small and portable
- simple to care for
- silent and discrete
- free of tubes, face straps, and electrical cords
If the thought of adjusting to a CPAP machine has you losing even more sleep, call Stephens & Gatewood Dentistry to schedule a sleep consultation at one of our two conveniently located offices to find out if oral appliance therapy maybe an alternative for you.
Our doctors at Stephens & Gatewood Dentistry provide in-home sleep studies and a custom fit oral sleep appliance to treat mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea. Did you know sleep apnea isn't only about snoring? It has serious effects on your overall health and well-being. Please call us today to see how we can help.
