Snoring & Sleep Apnea
Snoring and sleep apnea affect many people throughout the United States.
Your DHA dentist will work with you to find a solution that’s right for you.
Snoring and sleep apnea are very common conditions. Many of our patients who have one or both sometimes don’t even know it’s happening to them. In fact, we often hear patients say they had no clue they snored or showed signs of sleep apnea until their significant other or family member mentioned it to them.
Depending on your specific situation, a dental appliance may be appropriate to help treat your sleep apnea and snoring. Contact us today to start the conversation.
Snoring and Sleep Apnea FAQs
When a person snores, it typically signifies an airway obstruction while they are asleep. The resulting noise (rattle, grunt or even snort) occurs when the soft tissue of the throat is partially or fully blocking the airway.
Although snoring is one of the symptoms of sleep apnea, it does not always mean you have the disorder.
Sleep apnea is a very serious sleep disorder. It needs immediate attention by you and your team of medical and dental professionals. Sleep apnea is a persistent disruption preventing an individual’s ability to experience a sound night’s sleep. During daytime hours, the patient may experience drowsiness, muscle aches, fatigue, hallucinations, headaches and migraines, tremors and depression.
When a patient is showing signs of sleep apnea, they should contact their medical doctor right away. Most referrals to Dental Health Associates come from the patient’s physician once a completed sleep study and diagnosis have occurred.
Almost all of our sleep apnea patients will be directed to Dr. David Allen. He specializes in dental appliances for the treatment of snoring and sleep apnea.
