Sleep apnea is a very common sleep disorder. Those who have this disorder experience periods of cessation of breathing disrupted during sleep. Affecting adults and children, this disorder can result in impaired alertness, excessive daytime sleepiness, and attention difficulties. Added to this, memory may be affected, planning, attentiveness, sexual drive, and information processing. However, Dr. Chatila, Dorval dentist, (Clinique Dentaire Dorval), can treat the symptoms of sleep apnea with an oral appliance, and oral appliance therapy. These oral appliances generally work by advancing the lower jaw, and thus opening the upper airway. These appliances are custom made to fit the bite of each patient.
These oral appliances are worn during sleep. This helps to prevent the throat tissues from collapsing. When the throat tissues collapse the airway is obstructed and sleep apnea reoccurs. Research by the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine found that oral appliances are effective for treating mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea. Between 31 and 53 months the treatment continued to remain effective, and it was found that quality of life significantly improved. The oral appliances were also found to have positive benefits for blood pressure and cardiac rhythm as well. For proper guidance about sleep apnea and oral appliance therapy, speak to Dr. Chatila, your Dorval, QC dentist.
