According to medical research, about 50% of Americans between 40-60 years of age experience sleep disorders. Snoring can be a sign of a serious, potentially life-threatening medical condition called “sleep apnea.” Not only does sleep apnea pose a significant health risk, but also remains largely undiagnosed and can lead to irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure, sleepiness during the day, diabetes, headaches, muscle pain, and even stroke.
Snoring occurs when the soft tissues lining the nasal airway close in on each other, causing a partial obstruction or blockage followed by vibrations. While CPAP is the most effective treatment for severe sleep apnea, oral appliance therapy is a simpler and easier FDA-approved solution for patients who cannot tolerate it. The dental team at Woburn Dentistry are trained in fitting and maintaining a wide variety of oral devices that retain the tongue below the airway, and provide positive airway space to limit sleep apnea episodes and sleepiness.
