How We Treat Sleep Apnea
Sleep apnea is when someone repeatedly stops breathing for short periods of time throughout the night, which disrupts and throws off the sleep cycle. Primarily, this is caused by the tissues in the mouth and throat collapsing together and cutting off the air. To prevent this, we can give a patient a mouthpiece to wear at night that slightly shifts their lower jaw forward. This will keep the airway open and unobstructed, allowing a patient to sleep uninterrupted and stop snoring in the process (which can be great news for their family!).
