Obstructive sleep apnea is the absence of breathing for ten or more seconds during sleep. This medical condition affects millions of US adults each year. Symptons related to sleep apnea include chronic snoring, waking out of breath, chronic morning headaches, and excessive daytime sleepiness. If you experience these symptoms or otherwise feel you may be suffering from sleep apnea, let your medical doctor and Dr. Randall Nameth know right away.
Our team is happy to work in partnership with your sleep physician to create the most effective treatment plans to ensure you get the quality sleep you need to feel your best and maintain optimal health. Call our office if you’ve been recently diagnosed with sleep apnea or find yourself CPAP intolerant, and we’ll be happy to schedule a consultation to determine whether or not oral appliance therapy could improve your quality of sleep.
Traditionally, sleep apnea is treated using continuous positive airway pressure, CPAP. Unfortunately, many patients find themselves unable to adjust to this treatment method due to the sounds and sensations. For these patients, those who travel frequently, and those who are helped inadequately by CPAP alone, oral appliance therapy may offer a viable alternative or addition to sleep apnea treatment.
