Get The Rest You Need With Sleep Apnea Treatment

Sleep apnea is a severe condition that requires attention and treatment. At Haggerty Dental in Plymouth, MI, our dentists have the knowledge and tools to address this disorder and offer valuable support for better sleep and improved overall health.

What is sleep apnea?

Sleep apnea is a prevalent sleep disorder that is more than just loud snoring; it's a severe condition that disrupts breathing during sleep, often leading to fragmented sleep patterns and a host of health issues. Characterized by pauses in breathing or shallow breaths during sleep, sleep apnea can harm overall well-being if left untreated.

How is sleep apnea treated?

Our dentists play a crucial role in treating sleep apnea through oral appliances. These devices are custom-made to fit your mouth and are designed to keep your airway open during sleep. By repositioning the jaw or tongue, these appliances help prevent the collapse of soft tissues in the throat, reducing the likelihood of breathing interruptions.

What are the benefits of treatment?

Improved sleep quality is perhaps the most immediate and noticeable benefit. By addressing sleep apnea, individuals often experience fewer disruptions during the night, leading to more restful and rejuvenating sleep. This can result in increased daytime alertness and improved cognitive function.

Treating sleep apnea can significantly reduce the risk of developing severe health conditions associated with the disorder, such as hypertension, heart disease, and diabetes. By ensuring proper oxygenation throughout the night, treatment can also contribute to better cardiovascular health.

Additionally, addressing sleep apnea can enhance the quality of life for sufferers and their partners. Snoring, a common symptom of sleep apnea, often disrupts the sleep of bed partners, leading to strained relationships and decreased intimacy.
