01 Jan Crafting Your Custom Sleep Device
When you suffer from sleep apnea, this can leave you tired during the day and also impact your immune system and even your heart health! Our team wants to offer a solution that is comfortable and effective, and an alternative to the CPAP machine. Your Schertz, TX, sleep experts can create a custom sleep device!
The Warning Signs of Sleep Apnea
What are the common warning signs of sleep apnea? You may need to seek treatment if you suffer from chronic snoring, or wake in the night gasping for air or choking. You may also consider an appointment if you often feel exhausted during the day, feel irritable, and have trouble concentrating or issues with your memory. These could be indicators of sleep apnea, a disorder in which we stop breathing after soft tissues in your throat and mouth collapse and cut off airflow while we sleep. This could interrupt your sleep cycle multiple times a night and leave you exhausted!
The Dangers of Obstructed Breathing
Sleep apnea interrupts your sleep cycle so you can gain the rest needed to feel alert and active the next day. Over time, this also strains your immune system so you’re more vulnerable to illness. The disorder also strains your cardiovascular system, so you’re more likely to develop complications like high blood pressure, heart disease, and even stroke and heart attack. But with treatment to help you rest without interruption, you can avoid these complications and enjoy a better quality of life! Instead of a loud and inconvenient CPAP machine, our team can help with a custom oral appliance.
Creating Your Custom Appliances
To start treatment, we will conduct a detailed examination to assess the presence of sleep apnea and the severity of your disorder. We then gather detailed digital images and measurements of your smile, which we use to design and custom-fit an oral appliance. The device will fit comfortably and be worn as you rest at night. Once in place, this moves the jaw and tongue forward to prevent the collapse of soft tissues while you rest, so you avoid the cessation of breathing. You then wake feeling more rested and alert! The appliance can be taken with you easily, and is simple to clean and store.
If you have any questions about how we design and treat sleep disorders with an oral appliance, then contact our team today. We want to help you enjoy a good night’s rest so you feel alert and maintain a better quality of life in 2024!
