Benefits Of Sleep Apnea Treatment

You might not realize that you can have your sleep apnea in North Kansas City, MO, treated by your dentists. Dr. Bill Busch, Dr. Tucker Vanyperen, and Dr. Caitlyn Hall are here to help you at NKC Dental. 

Is Snoring A Big Deal?

Most people do not consider snoring to be a big deal, but the truth is when you are snoring your body is not getting the proper amounts of oxygen that it needs. If you snore loudly at night and also experience extreme fatigue during the daytime this could indicate that your snoring is something more serious. It could mean you have sleep apnea. If you suspect you have sleep apnea, it is important that you be properly evaluated for treatment.

What Is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a bit more serious than simply snoring. Sleep apnea is a condition in which a person starts and stops breathing repeatedly during the night. This abnormal breathing pattern while sleeping can disrupt your sleep on a very subtle level. You may not even come fully awake during the night, but your body awakens just enough to start breathing again. This constant state of barely waking up disturbs the quality of your sleep. This can result in extreme fatigue during the day. Sleep apnea can also, over time, have an effect on other organs of your body as they are not receiving the best oxygen saturation during the night.

How Is Sleep Apnea Treated?

Sleep apnea in North Kansas City, MO, can be treated by your dentist. An oral appliance can be prescribed to help you with this problem. A patient will wear a removable oral appliance in their mouth at night while sleeping. This device is similar to a retainer. This appliance will keep your airways open during the night so that your airway does not close during sleep.

Benefits of Sleep Apnea Treatment

Using a sleep apnea appliance in North Kanas City, MO, has many benefits. Most patients report better, more restful sleep. Once they begin getting this good sleep, moods, energy level, and productivity all improve. Daytime sleepiness should also improve. Snoring is decreased as well.
