Enjoy a Good Night’s Sleep
Do you feel exhausted during the day? Has anyone ever complained about your loud snoring? Sleep apnea can affect your ability to sleep through the night. By speaking with Drs. Hobbs and Wyatt, you may find that sleep apnea treatment will greatly improve your ability to sleep comfortably and enjoy productive days.
What Is Sleep Apnea?
If you suffer from sleep apnea, you wake several times a night because you stop breathing. The sleep apnea events occur when your throat muscles relax or when your tongue drops back and occludes (closes) your airway. The relaxed muscles result in a full collapse of your throat tissues, blocking your ability to breathe. We offer preventive sleep apnea treatment for our patients who display classic symptoms of this sleep disorder, such as:
- You feel tired during the day, even though you think you slept through the night
- You wake with a sensation of “cotton mouth”
- Your throat hurts upon waking
- You cannot seem to focus throughout the day
- You become irritable easily
- You snore loudly
How Do You Treat Sleep Apnea?
Drs. Hobbs and Wyatt will provide a custom made oral appliance that will comfortably reposition your jaw before you go to sleep, helping your airway remain unobstructed and allowing oxygen to flow easily.
What Are The Advantages Of Sleep Apnea Treatment?
Sleep apnea treatment utilizing an oral appliance is very comfortable and provides treatment without the use of a CPAP machine. By encouraging a restful night’s sleep, the treatment may prevent long-term discomfort and help you remain focused during the day.
Do I Qualify For Sleep Apnea Treatment?
You qualify for sleep apnea treatment if you answered, “yes” to one or more of the common symptoms listed above. Dr. Hobbs or Dr. Wyatt will assess your symptoms to decide if an oral appliance is an effective method for addressing your sleep apnea.
