Sleep Apnea Syndrome: Smiles By Design Has A Solution

What Is Sleep Apnea?

Snoring and chronic sleepiness is a condition and indication that something could be seriously wrong with a persons breathing during sleep. It’s indicative of an airway that is not completely open while sleeping. Snoring comes from air pressure within the body being forced through a narrow passageway. It’s a sign of a potentially dangerous sleep disorder called sleep apnea.

How Can Smiles By Design Help?

Here at Smiles By Design we treat sleep apnea. Sleep apnea requires careful attention and treatment because it’s potentially a life-threatening condition. If an air passage collapses during sleep it can cause complete blockage or partial blockage of the airway. This will interrupt sleep patterns. Symptoms of sleep apnea can include drowsiness during the day, weight gain, sexual dysfunction, and depression. If sleep apnea is left untreated it can result in high blood pressure, heart failure, heart attack and possibly stroke. Other conditions that can arise from sleep apnea are; eye problems like glaucoma, complications with medications and surgery, morning headaches, mood swings, memory problems, and nocturia (the need to urinate frequently at night). Position the jaw forward there by opening up the air way.

Don’t be alarmed if you have found sleep apnea to be a problem for you. This condition affects millions of Americans. At Smiles By Design it’s our goal to diagnose and provide or suggest treatment option for every patient that is troubled by this condition. Our doctors focus on non-invasive procedures that can improve the condition before suggesting surgery. We focus on fabricating oral appliances that position the lower jaw forward thereby opening airway space.
