Is It More Than Just Snoring? How Obstructive Sleep Apnea May Be Disturbing Your Rest in Weston, FL


Have you been told that you snore loudly at night? Are you experiencing daytime drowsiness other changes in your health and mood? These bothersome signs and symptoms may be related to a common condition called obstructive sleep apnea. This condition occurs when the tissue in your throat blocks your airway, often when you’re lying down. When your airway is blocked, your breathing temporarily ceases and you’ll wake gasping for breath. Many sleep apnea patients are unaware they have this condition, because – though they make wake many times throughout the night, each night – they usually aren’t aware that they’ve momentarily stopped breathing and they don’t remember waking up in the night.


Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) can be dangerous to your health and well-being in Weston. Waking many times throughout the night prevents you from getting the restful sleep your body needs to function its best. And even the brief, temporary lack of breathing caused by sleep apnea can lower your body’s oxygen level. While snoring, tiredness, and mood changes aren’t always caused by sleep apnea, seeing your doctor about these concerns can allow you to be tested for obstructive sleep apnea. If you have been diagnosed with this common condition and find a CPAP machine to be uncomfortable or inconvenient, you should consider all of the available options to treat obstructive sleep apnea in Weston.


At Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, we help patients with obstructive sleep apnea in South Florida sleep better through the use of custom-made OAT devices. Oral appliance therapy uses a mouthguard-like device to keep your airway open when you sleep. There are OAT devices that are sold over-the-counter, but when you come to the Weston, Brickell office of Dr. Maria Yazji, DDS, you can get an OAT device that’s made just for you. An oral appliance therapy device that is customized to your mouth will fit better and be more comfortable than an over-the-counter model. Unlike a CPAP machine, an OAT device is quiet and much less noticeable, and can be easily carried with you when you travel overnight. When you can treat your obstructive sleep apnea with a device that is:

  • Comfortable
  • Discrete
  • Quiet
  • Portable

and made to fit your unique dental anatomy, you’ll find it easy to comply with your OSA treatment every night.


When you treat your OSA with an oral appliance therapy device from Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics in Weston, you’ll be able to enjoy the benefits of better sleep. Consistent restful sleep and normal oxygen levels are necessary for the health of your body. If you have obstructive sleep apnea in Weston, make an appointment for an OAT device consultation with Dr. Yazji.
