Achieve The Restful Sleep You Need With A Customized Oral Device
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common and potentially serious sleep disorder that affects millions of people worldwide. It occurs when a person’s airway becomes partially or completely blocked during sleep, causing repeated interruptions in breathing. If left untreated, OSA can have a significant impact on their overall quality of life and can increase the risk of developing serious health complications, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes. At Family Dental Care in Mesa, our team offers customized oral devices as an effective treatment option for patients suffering from OSA.
How can an oral device help OSA?
A customized oral device, also known as a mandibular advancement device, can provide relief for patients with mild to moderate OSA. This non-invasive treatment option works by gently repositioning the lower jaw forward, preventing the collapse of the airway and allowing for unobstructed breathing during sleep.
What benefits can an oral device provide?
Effectiveness: Custom oral devices have been proven effective in reducing the symptoms and complications associated with OSA, significantly improving a patient's sleep quality and overall health.
Comfort: Unlike other treatment options, such as continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machines, custom oral devices are comfortable to wear and do not require a mask or noisy equipment.
Portability: Oral devices are small and easily portable, making them an ideal solution for patients who travel frequently or have limited space.
Personalized Fit: Each oral device is custom-made to fit the patient's unique oral anatomy, ensuring optimal comfort and effectiveness.
