Sleep Apnea Treatment – Plainville, CT
Breathe Easy & Rest Deeply All Night Long
Many people suffer from sleep apnea without even realizing it. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a partial or complete closure of the upper airway during sleep, ranging from a few seconds to a few minutes, which deprives the blood of oxygen and disrupts sleep. As a result, you might feel exhausted despite seemingly getting a full night’s rest. Proper diagnosis and treatment of sleep apnea can be life-changing, which is why we offer oral appliance therapy for sleep apnea here at Central CT Dental Group.

Do I Have Sleep Apnea?
Signs of sleep apnea include loud snoring, excessive daytime sleepiness, gastro esophageal reflux disease (GERD), mood swings, impotence, morning headaches, insulin resistance, and glucose intolerance. Studies show as many as one in five adults have moderate sleep apnea and 90% of people with it may not know they have it.
Oral Appliance Therapy
Rather than treating obstructive sleep apnea with a traditional cumbersome CPAP machine, our dentists offer a more convenient and comfortable solution – oral appliance therapy. Using impressions taken of your teeth, we can design a mouthpiece that resembles a nightguard. When you wear this oral appliance to bed, it keeps your airway open, preventing the tissues in your throat and mouth from creating blockage. As a result, you get to breathe easy and rest deeply all night long!
