What is Sleep Apnea?

Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when a person’s airway becomes partially or fully blocked as they sleep. This results in a lack of necessary oxygen, which triggers the brain to wake you up so you can resume breathing normally. While these awakenings may be brief and not even remembered in the morning, they can occur dozens or even hundreds of times each night, effectively preventing you from receiving the deep, uninterrupted rest you need to function properly. Sleep apnea can also result in higher blood pressure, increased risk of strokes and heart disease, and a greater chance of being involved in automobile accidents. Common symptoms include the following:

Oral Appliance Therapy

If you’ve been diagnosed with sleep apnea by your physician or a sleep specialist, traditional CPAP treatment isn’t your only option – oral appliance therapy from Dr. Alex and Dr. Pete may be able to provide you with the good night’s sleep you desperately need. This customized “snoreguard” will be designed to comfortably reposition your jaw and/or tongue, preventing obstruction and allowing air to flow freely. Its small, removable nature is also perfect for convenient cleaning and traveling, allowing you to achieve quality sleep wherever you are.
