Millions of Americans suffer from sleep apnea. These people routinely wake up throughout the night in order to resume breathing and experience very poor quality sleep. Common symptoms include snoring, frequent awakening during sleep, chronic fatigue and daytime sleepiness. Left untreated, sleep apnea can result in serious medical problems. Fortunately, there are several treatments available to correct sleep apnea issues. One option is a custom made oral appliance worn while sleeping that helps maintain a constant open oral airway. To determine if a dental appliance is the best option for treatment please consult your physician for an evaluation of your sleep and breathing issues.
