An Easier Way to Stop Sleep Apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea is a killer, but not a silent one. Obstructive sleep apnea is caused by loose or excessive flesh at the back of the throat and causes your breathing to stop temporarily, causing loud snoring. This may happen dozens, even hundreds, of times every night without you realizing. It deprives your brain and body of the restorative sleep that it needs every night and the oxygen that your organs need to function. You need sleep to live a healthy life; it is essential to your wellbeing, and poor sleep can lead to daytime drowsiness, obesity, high blood pressure and even death.

If you have been diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea, you may have been given a prescription for CPAP (continuous positive air pressure machine), which stops obstructive sleep apnea by using a mask and forcing oxygen, keeping the throat open. CPAP can be a wonderful thing for sleep apnea; it saves lives - if you use it every time you sleep.

The problem with CPAP masks are that they are bulky, and the oxygen is noisy. You are also connected to the tank with tubes, and if you roll around while you sleep you can become tangled or disconnected. This causes many people not to use the CPAP machine as they should. Non-compliance with CPAP machines is common.

Fortunately, there is now a better way to treat sleep apnea, and it is an approved treatment according to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. OAT treatment for obstructive sleep apnea is an alternative to CPAP. It is a personalized, customized treatment for you, and has been proven to work without bulky masks and noisy oxygen.

OAT treatment for sleep apnea is oral appliance therapy – it is an appliance that fits comfortably in your mouth and keeps the airway open. Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics will take impressions of your teeth and provide you with OAT treatment for sleep apnea in Miramar that is truly comfortable and helps solve the problem. Because it fits your mouth and doesn’t distort (like boil and wear over-the-counter oral appliances), this customized oral appliance therapy in Miramar, Florida doesn’t cause mouth irritation and you are more likely to wear it at night.

OAT treatment can also help plain old snoring that isn’t a symptom of sleep apnea. Oat treatment for snoring is very effective, and not only helps you have better sleep, it can ease your partner’s sleep as well.

If you think that you are ready to talk to someone about OAT treatment for sleep apnea in Miramar to help with your snoring or your obstructive sleep apnea, please contact the office of Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics to schedule an appointment at (954) 217-3737.
