For many people, attempts to treat obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) involved uncomfortable systems, such as the CPAP machine. Fortunately, we offer our Pearland, TX, patients personalized sleep solutions with oral appliances. In today’s blog, we’re going to look at these personalized treatment options.
Do I Need A Sleep Solution?
Patients with undiagnosed sleep apnea tend to feel exhausted or drowsy throughout the day, experiencing headaches and moodiness, and snore during the night. Waking up gasping for air/choking, experiencing dry mouth, and having difficulty staying awake behind the wheel are also common warning signs. We diagnose the issue with a home sleep test, which monitors you as you sleep in your own bed. If we find you need treatment, we may recommend a sleep solution.
The Benefits of a Personalized Sleep System
- They Fit Comfortably: The appliances look very similar to a nightguard and will be worn at night as the patient sleeps. Being custom-made ensures they fit well and provide a comfortable solution. Often, CPAP machines and other less cozy options mean people forgo treatment and end up continuing to suffer from OSA.
- You Breathe Easier: The appliance actually moves the jaw forward, which helps prevent the collapse of soft tissues in the throat and mouth. Patients then breathe without interruption throughout the night, feeling rested and alert during the day.
- You Sleep Better: You don’t need to wear a mask and you don’t have to be connected to a loud machine that pumps air, instead you wear a cozy nightguard. You enjoy a comfortable means of treating and improving oral health.
