Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Are you struggling to get a good night's sleep? Do you feel fatigued during the day, or has a loved one mentioned your loud snoring? These could be signs of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), a common sleep disorder affecting millions worldwide.

At Makowski Dental, we are dedicated to helping you find relief and enjoy restful, rejuvenating sleep once again.

Do I Have Sleep Apnea?

Obstructive Sleep Apnea is characterized by the repeated interruption of breathing during sleep. These interruptions, or apneas, are caused by the collapse of the upper airway, leading to reduced oxygen intake and poor sleep quality.

Recognizing the signs of OSA is the first step to seeking help. Common indicators include:

  • Loud and Persistent Snoring: While occasional snoring is normal, chronic, disruptive snoring can be a sign of OSA.
  • Daytime Fatigue: OSA interrupts your sleep, preventing you from reaching restorative stages of rest.
  • Pauses in Breathing: You may experience choking or gasping for breath at night, often reported by a bed partner.
  • Morning Headaches: Frequent morning headaches can result from oxygen deprivation caused by OSA.

Certain disorders are also associated with sleep apnea, including hypertension, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, cognitive impairment, or stroke.

What Are Oral Appliances, and How Do They Work?

Our specialized oral appliances are non-invasive, custom-fit devices designed to treat OSA. They gently reposition the jaw and tongue to keep the airway open, preventing the obstruction responsible for apneas. Oral appliances also ensure a continuous airflow, allowing you to breathe easily during sleep.

With improved airflow, you can enjoy uninterrupted, restful sleep, reducing daytime fatigue and improving overall well-being.

The Benefits of Oral Appliances

Choosing oral appliances for OSA treatment offers numerous advantages:

  • Non-Invasive
  • Custom-Fit
  • Quiet and Portable
  • Easy to Maintain
  • Increased Compliance
