Snoring and Sleep Apena

Snoring and sleep apnea are no laughing matter. In fact, it really is a matter of life and death. Sleep apnea is strongly linked with heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, depression and many other health problems. And often the main culprit is – obstruction or collapse of the airway during sleep.

What Role Does Dentistry Play in the Treatment of Sleep Disorders?

Dentistry has a role to play in helping manage the human airway – both in its growth and development (think childhood / adolescent growth, orthodontics, etc) as well as in its treatment.

“Sleep Dentists” work in partnership with sleep physicians to treat snoring and sleep apnea by making special oral appliances worn during sleep that help position and support the jaw and open the airway. These are especially helpful for people who can’t or won’t use their CPAP machines during sleep, for whatever reason.

If you snore, have sleep apnea, or have problems with your CPAP solution, please for your life’s sake, meet with Dr. Ostler and see if you are a candidate for a sleep oral appliance. Whatever you do, don’t ignore it or leave it untreated, as its effects are life-threatening.
