Sleep Apnea Treatment

Sleep apnea is a sleep-related breathing disorder which can lead to a reduction in the airflow to the respiratory system. Sleeping well at night is essential to your overall health. Many people are not getting their fair share of sleep due to disorders like Sleep Apnea which leads to recurrent reduction in the airflow to the respiratory system. This is caused when the soft tissues near the back of the throat collapse while you sleep. This partially closes the windpipe and causes the tissues to vibrate as air passes through them, a sound you recognize as snoring. Chronic snoring may be a symptom of sleep apnea.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea can be a serious condition and can lead to heart issues and other health problems. Some symptoms of sleep apnea include:

  • Irritability
  • Excessive daytime sleepiness
  • Poor memory
  • Morning headaches
  • Night sweats
  • Obesity
  • Elevated blood pressure

At Rye Dental Associates, we treat sleep apnea with the use of a custom-made oral appliance. The device will be worn during sleep and is proven to prevent the collapse of the tongue and soft tissues in the back of the throat during sleep thereby keeping the airway open, allowing a restful sleep.

Our Happy Patients

"Competent, capable care in a relaxed (and relaxing) environment. The sole focus of the practice is good dental health - rather than “selling” as I’ve experienced elsewhere. Great respect is afforded to patient preferences. I’ve recommended this practice to family and friends and will continue to do so as they’re A1 in my book."

"Have always been a bit of a baby when it comes to dentists but after coming here I am no longer worried. Everything from beginning to end was excellent and I was sent home pain free. Will definitely be coming back for my routine checkups :)"
