Sleep apnea oral appliances can effectively treat mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea is a medical condition caused by airway obstructions during sleep, resulting in breathing interruptions during sleep. Obstructive sleep apnea is a serious medical condition and should be treated with professional care. Common symptoms of sleep apnea include:
- Morning headaches
- Loud snoring
- Gasping or choking feelings or sounds during sleep
- Personality changes or irritability
- Excessive daytime drowsiness
If you suffer from sleep apnea, Dr. Donald Green, your talented dentist in Pottstown, Pennsylvania, may recommend a sleep apnea oral appliance. The oral appliance is worn during sleep and keeps your airway open, allowing you to breathe continually throughout the night. Sleep apnea oral appliances can also minimize snoring.
