Sleep apnea is a condition that occurs when you experience pauses in breathing during sleep. Obstructive sleep apnea is the most common form of sleep apnea and affects millions of people in the United States. It occurs when soft tissue, usually the tongue, blocks the airway.
An oral appliance moves the lower jaw forward to keep your airway open while you sleep. Dr. Buro has been treating sleep apnea for years, and he facilitates everything from diagnosing to treating these problems.
No one is immune to sleep apnea, but middle-age and older men are at the highest risk. Dr. Buro can quickly identify signs of sleep apnea during your initial consultation.
We’re so serious about treating sleep apnea because untreated sleep apnea can increase your risk of heart disease, weight gain, and even stroke.
Sleep apnea is most commonly associated with loud snoring, but not everyone who has sleep apnea snores. Here are a few other sleep apnea symptoms to look out for:
You don’t need to visit a sleep lab to figure out your sleep problems. Dr. Buro can provide you with a take-home diagnostic kit so you can stay in the comfort of your own bed. This gives Dr. Buro the best reading possible.
Most patients with obstructive sleep apnea can benefit from an oral appliance, but some severe cases may require a CPAP machine. Family First Dental & Implant Center can help decide which option is best for you.
We can help explain which services and solutions are covered by your particular medical insurance policy so that we can bill your insurance for an appliance or CPAP. Ask us about your plan when you set up an appointment – we’ll make everything as hassle-free for you as possible!
