Sleep Apnea Treatment
Get the Good Night’s Sleep You Deserve
According to the American Dental Association, one out of every six people over the age of 50 has at least mild sleep apnea. It’s also estimated that almost 75 percent of severe apnea cases go undiagnosed.
Sleep Apnea is commonly linked with snoring and other breathing problems, too. While snoring may seem harmless, it can often be an indicator of some larger, treatable disorder, like obstructive sleep apnea. Even if there are no further complications, snoring itself can be an issue, too. The disruptive sound can keep your partner up at night or dry out your mouth. But with help from a qualified professional, snoring and sleep apnea do not have to be a recurring problem.
At River Park Dental, we assess your situation and offer life-changing solutions like custom mouth guards and night guards. If you suspect you’re suffering from a TMJ disorder or sleep apnea, give us a call to discuss your options.
Signs and Symptoms
Unexplained headaches, loud snoring, muscle soreness, and a clicking jaw can be signs of TMD or sleep apnea. Some of these symptoms are caused by the tongue or soft palate blocking the airway and creating an obstruction. If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, call us today to set up a consultation.
At River Park Dental, our compassionate team will assess your needs and work with you to determine an individualized treatment plan that works for you. We offer custom oral appliances that will provide relief and have you breathing easy again. They aid with both snoring and sleep apnea, so you and your partner can have a better night’s sleep!
