SCHAUMBURG, Ill., Oct. 9, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Dentists Drs. Jig Patel, David Neumann
Sleep apnea occurs when the airways close during sleep, causing patients to experience potentially dozens of disruptive snoring and gasping episodes each night. Although individuals who suffer from sleep apnea rarely fully awaken during those snoring events, they lose quality sleep and much-needed oxygen. As a result, sleep apnea sufferers may find it difficult to stay awake during the day, as well as have problems with memory, brain function, and even cardiovascular health.
Drs. Patel, Neumann and Merchant regularly work with patients who have been diagnosed with sleep apnea to suggest and implement personalized treatment plans. Although not every solution works for all sleep apnea patients, most patients can find help by undergoing at least one of the proven sleep apnea treatments.
One of the most common initial sleep apnea inventions offered at Schaumburg Dental Studio is development of a MosesŪ oral appliance. This appliance in FDA cleared to help treat snoring and sleep apnea and looks somewhat like a sports mouthguard. Custom-crafted to fit the patient's mouth, each patient wears the appliance during sleep, and the appliance keeps the jaw slightly forward to ensure the airway cannot be completely constricted.
Another frequently used treatment for snoring and sleep apnea is CPAP therapy. During sleep, patients undergoing CPAP wear a mask attached to a special machine that gently forces air into their mouths. The continuous stream of air pressure lessens the likelihood of gasping episodes.
Patients who have been diagnosed with sleep apnea in Schaumburg, IL or the surrounding Chicago area, may call Schaumburg Dental Studio at 847-348-8673 with or without a referral from a sleep specialist to discuss potential dental solutions to this common condition.
