If you experience frequent snoring and daytime exhaustion, then this group may include you, but the team at St. Albans Dental is ready to offer a solution. We can provide patients with small oral appliances to wear to bed that are designed to slightly shift the jaw and keep the airway open during the night, stopping the breathing interruptions associated with sleep apnea. As a result, a patient will rest better, stop snoring, and wake up feeling energized every morning. Keep reading to learn more about sleep apnea therapy in St. Albans.
The most common type of sleep apnea is obstructive sleep apnea, where something blocks or constricts the airways. In many cases, facial tissues relax too much and interfere with your ability to breathe during sleep. At St. Albans Dental, we can provide you with an oral appliance that brings the lower jaw and facial tissues forward, keeping the airway open. This small appliance can help you get rid of your snoring, achieve deep and restful sleep, and wake up feeling refreshed and energized.
