Sleep apnea is a serious disorder that causes breathing to repeatedly stop and start during sleep. At Spark Sleep Solutions, we take sleep apnea very seriously and understand that every patient is different and may need individualized treatment options to correct their sleep apnea. At our practice, we offer continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) alternative treatments like oral sleep appliances to help our patients achieve a restful night’s sleep. We will be sure to find the right treatment for you!
Sleep Apnea Explained
Sleep apnea is a breathing condition that involves airway collapse, causing blood oxygen levels to become depleted. The brain senses this oxygen drop and automatically triggers night-time arousals so that breathing can restart. Unfortunately, this interferes with normal sleep needed to rejuvenate and refresh the body. Breathing airways narrowing and collapsing during sleep leads to snoring and sleep apnea.
Oral Appliance Therapy with Spark Sleep Solutions
At Spark Sleep Solutions, we believe in the use of CPAP alternative treatments like oral sleep appliances because many patients are CPAP intolerant. Oral sleep devices allow for a forward advancement of the jaw in a comfortable, controlled position. This will effectively open the airway of the patient. Studies by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine demonstrated effective treatment of mild to moderate sleep apnea with an oral sleep appliance.
