Sleep apnea is a condition in which patients have trouble breathing properly while sleeping. Our dentists at Norton Dental Hamilton provide effective sleep apnea treatment so patients can sleep in comfort.
Sleep apnea victims generally experience temporary cessations of breath, called apneas. Apneas may last up to 40 seconds, causing the brain to wake in order to move so they can resume normal breathing.
Our office uses custom made sleep apnea appliances to ensure a seamless and comfortable fit. Through oral appliance therapy we are able to successfully treat patients with sleep apnea.
Snoring is a common symptom of sleep apnea and may lead to more severe side effects such as depression, hypertension, and cardiac problems. Sleep apnea symptoms may also include night sweats, forgetfulness, daytime sleepiness, sore throat, irritability, and dry mouth.
Patient comfort and uninterrupted sleep are just some of the benefits of our sleep apnea treatment. Our sleep apnea appliance is used to stabilize the tongue and jaw during sleep to better enable peaceful sleep and decrease snoring. Our sleep apnea appliance may also be used to treat TMJ.
