Wake Up Feeling More Rested With Sleep Apnea Treatment

Sleep apnea is a sleep-related disorder that affects nighttime breathing patterns, resulting in restless sleep and excessive daytime drowsiness. According to the Sleep Foundation, this disorder affects 10% to 30% of adults in the United States. If you’re one of them, you can find treatment at Meigan Miller Family Dentistry. At our office in Eatonton, Georgia, we practice dental sleep medicine and offer treatment of sleep apnea for patients in Lake Country.

Causes and Symptoms of Sleep Apnea

For people living with sleep apnea, breathing disruptions occur when the muscles in the back of the throat relax during sleep, narrowing the airways. The most common symptom of sleep apnea is loud snoring, which is often accompanied by gasping or choking sounds. When airways become fully obstructed, preventing oxygen from passing through, the body can suddenly awaken to restore airflow. Partial or complete awakenings can occur several times a night, denying the patient restful sleep.

A Qualified Dentist That Treats Sleep Apnea

If sleep apnea is keeping you up at night, you can find relief at Meigan Miller Family Dentistry. We treat sleep apnea with oral appliance therapy, wherein a custom-made mouthguard advances the lower jaw slightly forward into a comfortable position. This forward movement of the jaw tightens the soft tissues and muscles of the upper airway, preventing obstruction while you sleep. The result is safe, soundless sleep and feeling more rested when you wake up in the morning.
