Our Sleep Apnea Treatment Can Improve Your Health & Vitality

Obstructive sleep apnea is the most common type of sleep apnea. It occurs when your air passages become blocked by your tongue and other soft tissues in your throat. When this happens, your brain signals your body to wake up and take in more oxygen. Then you drift back to sleep until the next occurrence. Some sleep apnea sufferers experience these episodes hundreds of times each night.

If you show signs of this condition, Kirchner Dental can help. Here is what to expect:

  • We’ll refer you to a physician who will prescribe the appropriate sleep tests.
  • A licensed physician will review the test and make a diagnosis.
  • If you have obstructive sleep apnea, your dentist will make a custom-fitted sleep appliance for you.
  • The appliance will gently move your lower jaw forward to help keep your airway open. You’ll sleep better and feel better!

With our appliance, you’ll avoid having to use a CPAP machine. While CPAP works well, as many as 50 percent of patients give up on it because they can’t adjust to having air forced through their airway.

With sleep apnea treatment, you’ll reduce your risk for heart attacks, high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes, and more. All these health conditions have been linked to obstructive sleep apnea. Taking action now to treat your symptoms will pay big dividends in your total body health.
