Snoring. Low energy. Brain fog. Irritability. Experiencing these exhausting symptoms could indicate more than a poor night’s sleep. You may be experiencing obstructive sleep apnea, or OSA.
You might be hesitant to pursue a sleep study, because when most people think of OSA, they think a clumsy continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) device is the only option for relief. 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 a simple oral appliance from Stephens & Gatewood Dentistry. This device fits over your teeth, similar to a bite guard, and has none of the downsides of positive airway pressure therapy. Oral appliances for OSA are:
- easy to wear
- small and portable
- simple to care for
- silent and discrete
- free of tubes or face straps
If the thought of adjusting to a CPAP machine has you losing even more sleep, call Stephens & Gatewood Dentistry to schedule an evaluation at one of our two conveniently located offices to find out if oral appliance therapy will help you sleep better. Because, you deserve more energy and more clarity (and fewer kicks at night because you’re snoring too loudly).
The dentists of Stephens & Gatewood Dentistry provide take-home sleep tests and a custom fit oral sleep appliance for mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea. 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.
