Mouth Guard for Sleep Apnea

Mouth Guard for Sleep ApneaA partner’s loud snoring can ruin a person’s sleep, but that snoring could also indicate that the snorer may have a potentially serious sleep disorder known as sleep apnea. Sleep apnea occurs when the airway becomes obstructed. This causes breathing to stop momentarily. Loud snorts, grunts or choking sounds indicate that breathing has started again. Understandably, this kind of sleep interruption can lead to some serious health problems, including daytime sleepiness, attention deficits, irritability and an increased risk of heart attack and stroke. If you or someone you love has symptoms of sleep apnea, our Los Angeles dentist can help.

A mouth guard for sleep apnea is a conservative treatment option that can eliminate or reduce the need for more invasive or uncomfortable treatments or procedures. Our Los Angeles dentist will use molds of your mouth to create a custom-fit mouth guard to treat your sleep apnea. Most mouth guards use one of two designs. The first design gently pushes the lower jaw forward, which adjusts the airways to prevent collapse. The second design stabilizes the soft tissues in the mouth and prevents the tongue from slipping back and blocking the airways. The type that is right for you may vary based on the cause of your apnea and your personal needs.

We may recommend a mouth guard for sleep apnea along with lifestyle changes for some of our patients. For some patients, medications, tobacco and alcohol can play a role in their condition. Patients who are overweight, obese or sedentary may need to add exercise to their days and eat a balanced diet to improve muscle tone and lose weight, which can also provide symptom relief. An evaluation can give us the information we need to make personalized recommendations. Contact us today to learn more about how a mouth guard for sleep apnea can help you get a better night’s sleep or to schedule your consultation with our expert in sleep apnea in Los Angeles.
