Why Treating Sleep Apnea Is Crucial to Your Health

Some believe that sleep apnea is simply snoring and waking up tired. This is not the case. Sleep apnea is actually a dangerous sleep condition that has been linked to body health complications like high blood pressure, heart attack, and stroke. Treatment is crucial to lowering your risks for these conditions and additional complications.

What Is Sleep Apnea?

If you have sleep apnea, you stop breathing periodically throughout the night. This can leave you feeling tired and irritable the next morning. It can also interfere with the sleep habits of family and loved ones.

What Is Sleep Apnea Treatment in Aurora, IL?

CPAP is a common sleep apnea treatment the requires a special nose mask to be worn during sleep. This mask is connected to a machine that delivers continuous air pressure into your sinus to help keep your throat open as you rest. Some patients do well with this machine, but others have trouble adjusting to the mask and constant airflow.

At Prairie Dental Care, we offer an alternative to CPAP treatment—a custom appliance that fits over the teeth. The back of the appliance gently keeps your airway open throughout the night. Our device is also ideal for traveling because it is small and easy to take with you.

Your dentist in Aurora will evaluate your sleep apnea to make sure appliance therapy is right for you.
