Achieve The Restful Sleep You Need With Oral Appliance Therapy
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a serious disorder that causes patients to snore and take breathing pauses – sometimes 30 times or more per hour! – while they sleep. It can be caused by many factors, including being overweight or having a blocked airway due to enlarged tonsils or a deviated septum.
At Golden Rule Dental Care in Arlington, we are proud to offer our patients the latest treatment for OSA with an OPTISLEEP oral appliance.
What are the symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea?
Common symptoms include loud, chronic snoring, daytime fatigue, morning headaches, irritability, depression, anxiety, and difficulty focusing.
If you think you may suffer from sleep apnea, it's important to be examined and, if necessary, treated right away, as symptoms can have a negative impact on your overall quality of life.
How is OSA treated at Golden Rule Dental Care?
A custom-made OPTISLEEP oral appliance can be effective in improving symptoms and reducing the risks associated with OSA for patients who are unable or not interested in utilizing a CPAP machine. Our dentist uses 3D imaging to design each OPTISLEEP appliance, eliminating the need for messy impressions.
What are the benefits of an OPTISLEEP appliance?
In addition to helping patients achieve a more restful sleep by pulling their lower jaw slightly forward and enlarging their airway, this appliance is also highly durable, comfortable, non-invasive, and its extremely slim design makes it easy to wear while sleeping.
If you suspect you or someone you love may be experiencing OSA, call our friendly team at Golden Rule Dental Care today! We’ll be happy to conduct a thorough assessment and provide insight into how OPTISLEEP can help.
