Sleep Apnea Treatment

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common sleep disorder that is related to breathing. In most cases, it causes chronic daytime fatigue as well as snoring. Sleep apnea is associated with health problems such as heart disease and high blood pressure when it’s left untreated. Finding a treatment solution is the best way to reduce your symptoms and risks.


Traditionally, CPAP machines were used as the treatment method, however, most patients find it to be noisy and uncomfortable to wear. It’s important to find a treatment that you will stick with. If you’re finding that a CPAP is too uncomfortable for you, we offer oral appliance therapy at our Wayne dental office. Keep reading to see if it’s the right choice for you.

What is Sleep Apnea?

Obstructive sleep apnea occurs while you sleep. It happens when the muscles at the back of your throat relax. As a result, your airway narrows or even closes when you breathe in, leaving you with not enough oxygen. This will lower your oxygen level in your blood which will alert your brain to awaken you in your sleep to open your airway. This awakening can be a gasp, choke or even snort that will occur anywhere from 5 to 30 times per hour. As a result, you never enjoy a restful night of sleep.

Sleep apnea is more common than you think. There is an estimated 40 million Americans who suffer and only 10% are diagnosed. Currently, 1 in 5 adults have a mild case of OSA while 1 in 15 adults suffer from moderate to severe OSA. Factors that may increase your chances include weight gain, a BMI greater than 30, smoking, mouth breathing, and a neck circumference larger than 17” in men or 15” in women.

Take Home Testing For Sleep Apnea & Bruxism

We send patients home with a user-friendly monitor, which tests for both sleep apnea and bruxism over one night. The monitor provides clinically proven results that give you the data you need to effectively treat and diagnose our patients. The device is FDA approved for adults and for pediatric use for children between the age of 2-18.

Treatment for Sleep Apnea

At Glow Dental Spa, we use only oral appliances to treat sleep apnea. Oral appliances are custom-made mouth guards designed to move your lower jaw forward to open your airway while you sleep. It prevents the tongue from falling back, allowing you to breathe seamlessly throughout the night. As a result, you will fall into a deep sleep and not wake up several times throughout the night. We recommend oral appliance therapy for patients who suffer from mild to moderate sleep apnea as well as those who grind their teeth or have TMJ pain.

Oral appliances are a comfortable alternative to CPAP. You don’t have to wear a mask over your face, and it’s not loud. An oral appliance is simply a mouth guard you insert into your mouth before you go to sleep. It’s comfortable to wear, easy to use, portable and non-invasive. Patients find that it only takes a few uses to get used to wearing.
