Sleep Better with Lenexa Sleep Apnea Therapy
You may think that snoring is a fact of life. You also probably never considered talking to your dentist about the problem & sleep dentistry solution for Lenexa. We have great news for you and your sleeping partner. Dr. James Craig can treat some cases of snoring and obstructive sleep apnea with a custom-made oral appliance that we call a snoreguard.
Snoring is actually the sound made by soft tissues vibrating as air is forced over them. While not all snorers have sleep apnea, many sleep apnea patients snore. Obstructive sleep apnea is a condition in which a person stops breathing for 10 seconds or longer, repeatedly during the night. The condition can cause problems that range from forgetfulness and daytime drowsiness to serious side effects, like increased risk for heart problems and falling asleep while driving.
Dr. Craig can design an appliance, called a snoreguard, to assist with airflow by slightly altering the position of the jaw. Many patients who have tried to wear a CPAP turn to a snoreguard as a more comfortable alternative. At your next dental visit, talk to Dr. Craig about your snoring or obstructive sleep apnea. He will work with you to find a solution and return your restful nights!
