Enjoy Quality Rest At Last with Sioux Falls, SD Sleep Apnea Therapy
Everyone needs a good night’s rest to make the most out of each and every day, but patients suffering from sleep apnea tend to struggle with intense feelings of fatigue and exhaustion during waking hours, no matter how much time they spent in bed the night before. Why does this happen? Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when a patient’s airway becomes partially or fully blocked during sleep; this forces the brain to awaken them again and again so that they can correct the problem and restore the flow of oxygen. While these interruptions may be brief, they can happen up to hundreds of times each night.
Can A Dentist Really Help Treat My Sleep Apnea?
Yes! Whether you’re just now seeking out a diagnosis for your sleep troubles or experiencing difficulties with traditional sleep apnea treatment (CPAP), Family Dentistry of Sioux Falls is here to provide alternative support that’s comfortable, convenient, and wildly effective. Dr. Jonathan Held has undergone additional training in this field in order to provide patients with mild to moderate sleep apnea the successful, even life-changing improvements they need, and he can design a customized oral appliance that’s worn throughout the night, adjusting the jaw and/or tongue so that the airway stays unobstructed.
