Sleep Apnea Therapy in Beachwood, OH
Looking for a good night’s sleep? Turn to The Center for Advanced Dentistry.
You may think of snoring as a mild nuisance, but it can actually be indicative of a serious sleep-breathing disorder known as sleep apnea. Snoring occurs when soft tissues block air passages. Air then forces entry, causing the muffled vibrations we know as snoring. A variety of factors can contribute to airway blockage, including tongue and jaw position, throat size, and tonsil or adenoid size. Snoring does not necessarily indicate sleep apnea, but the only way to be certain that you aren’t suffering from this potentially dangerous condition is to complete a sleep study. Even if you don’t have sleep apnea, an oral appliance can help eliminate snoring. After all, your bed partner would like to get a good night's sleep, too!
The Center for Advanced Dentistry offers a complimentary consultation for our patients who snore. At the initial visit, we will discuss your major concerns about your sleep situation and fatigue. Dr. Hornstein will also review your medical history and symptoms, as this information is vital for your treatment. Plus, it helps measure your risk for sleep apnea.
If it’s determined by a medical doctor that you would benefit from sleep apnea therapy, The Center for Advanced Dentistry is prepared to assist! Depending on your needs, Dr. Hornstein can fit you for either a Somnodent or The Moses, both of which are oral appliances that are worn during sleep. These devices effectively treat sleep apnea by maintaining the position of your tongue and soft tissues while you sleep, keeping your airway open throughout the night. Almost everyone affected by sleep apnea that uses this form of therapy reported a comfortable, full night’s rest when wearing it. These revolutionary tools can only be obtained by working with a healthcare professional like Dr. Hornstein.
