Sleep Apnea Can Ruin More Than Sleep

Snoring Is Only the Start

Like many people, you may believe that sleep apnea and snoring are the same thing. While they are related, snoring is just an obvious symptom of something far more serious going on with your body. Snoring occurs when the soft tissues of your tongue, soft palate, and neck collapse onto your windpipe during sleep, blocking your airway. This can actually cause you to stop breathing many times each night. Besides the obvious noise issues, the most immediate effect of sleep apnea is persistent daytime sleepiness, which can interfere with your personal and professional endeavors. But that’s not the worst of it. Sleep apnea has the potential to cause systemic health issues, some of which are serious or can become serious if not treated: heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, adult asthma, acid reflux, weight gain, and more. Dr. Germain Jean-Charles offers an effective take-home treatment to help you overcome this chronic condition.

A Nighttime Guard Is the Solution

Once our doctors determine that you have sleep apnea, they can offer you a form of treatment that you can use in your own home every night to stop your airway obstruction, the subsequent snoring, and the serious consequences that can come from these. A mouth guard may be all that stands between you, restful sleep, and energetic days. Referred to in dentistry as a Mandibular Advancement Device, this mouth guard shifts your lower jaw slightly forward, stopping your soft palate from obstructing your airway. You may have seen something similar used in sports, though those mouth guards are intended to protect your mouth from trauma. Custom-fitted to you by our team, your sleep apnea mouth guard slips over your top and bottom arches of teeth. We’ll show you how to use them before you leave our Canandaigua, NY office. Isn’t it time you had healthier sleep and better overall health?

Snoring? See how a mouth guard can transform your life!
