Sleep Apnea Therapy
Sleep apnea is a condition in which the patient stops breathing for ten seconds or longer during sleep.Patients who struggle with sleep apnea are also prone to loud snoring, as well as the following symptoms:
- Daytime exhaustion and fatigue
- Morning headaches
- Morning sore throat
- Problems with memory and/or concentration
If you’ve been diagnosed with sleep apnea by a sleep specialist or your general physician, please consider giving Dr. Salazar and the rest of our team a call here at Port Isabel Dental. We offer oral appliance therapy as a more convenient and comfortable alternative to traditional CPAP treatment.Because obstructed airways often cause sleep apnea and snoring, your oral appliance will be designed to keep your tongue or lower jaw from blocking air’s path to the lungs, allowing you to breathe easy throughout the night.As a result, we can help you sleep better, and we can treat your snoring.
