Many people suffer from sleep apnea, which involves the collapsing of the airway when the body is relaxed. This can also be due to poor muscle tone of the muscles surrounding the airway. Treatment options for mild sleep apnea include continuous positive airway pressure or a mandibular stabilization device. Treatment of severe sleep apnea is primarily continuous positive airway therapy, depending on soft tissue considerations such as the soft palate and tonsils, where surgery may be indicated. Patients at risk are typically referred to a sleep specialist physician, who will often order a polysomnography test, which is commonly referred to as a sleep study. Symptoms of apnea include daytime sleepiness, bruxism, temporomandibular pain, headaches, snoring, high blood pressure, difficulty concentrating, irritability, memory problems, difficulty falling asleep, gasping, need for sleeping pills, anxiety, depression, reflux, and feeling sleepy. The goal of treatment is to allow the patient to breathe easily, with no disturbances, when sleeping. While there are companies who advertise appliances that sell, “stop snoring mouthpieces,” it should be noted that snoring is indicative of apnea which is a serious health condition. It is recommended that anyone experiencing gasping or snoring see a sleep dentist or physician.
Harmony Dental Appliance:
The Harmony Dental Appliance is the missing link between you PAP and a great night’s sleep.
PAP machines are considered the gold standard for treatment of obstructive sleep apnea. In some cases, however, patients will still experience snoring, dry mouth, teeth grinding and waking during the night. The Harmony appliance can help alleviate many of the nuisances associated with PAP use, most importantly making cpap masks form better seals and eliminating dry mouth in mouth breathers.
