A full night of uninterrupted sleep is vital to your health and sense of wellbeing. If you are living with obstructive 92126 sleep apnea, it may be difficult to get the rest you need. At the office of Dr. Melinda Marino, we offer state-of-the-art treatment for obstructive sleep apnea with customized oral appliance therapy.
If you’re struggling with obstructive sleep apnea, it’s important to seek care right away. This sleep disorder can lead to serious, even life-threatening consequences, if left untreated. Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when the muscles at the back of the throat collapse while you are asleep, blocking airflow through the mouth and nose. To diagnose this condition, you will need to undergo a sleep study, which allows a medical professional to observe your symptoms while you’re at rest. Loud snoring, pausing or ceasing to breathe, waking up abruptly or gasping for air may indicate obstructive sleep apnea. Due to disturbances in your sleep cycle, you may also experience fatigue, difficulty concentrating and headaches throughout your day. In certain cases, a customized oral appliance can provide effective treatment for mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea, as an alternative to a CPAP machine. Our 92126 sleep apnea oral appliances fit over your top and bottom teeth, like a retainer, keeping your jaw in a slightly forward position to allow for easier airflow. Our team takes the time to guide you on how to properly wear and care for your appliance, to ensure the best outcome of treatment.
At the office of Dr. Melinda Marino, we help you breathe easier and sleep better. Our team provides a comprehensive selection of services as well as customized care to improve your oral health and overall well being.
