What Is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that hinders your breathing, causing you to wake up and gasp for air several times a night. There are two main types:

Obstructive Sleep Apnea

The most common form is obstructive sleep apnea. This condition is caused when soft tissues in the back of your throat collapse and obstruct your upper airway after you fall asleep. 

Central Sleep Apnea

Central sleep apnea occurs when the brain doesn't send signals to your breathing muscles. Some people have a combination of central and obstructive sleep apnea.

Sleep Apnea Treatments 
 

Simple lifestyle changes like losing weight, treating nasal congestion, and avoiding smoking, alcohol, and sleeping pills can ease some sleep apnea symptoms. However, professional treatments are the best way to get back to sleeping soundly and peacefully.

Oral Appliance Therapy

Your doctor will likely recommend a small, custom-fitted mouthguard you'll wear over your teeth at night. This comfortable device gently moves your bottom jaw forward, creating more open breathing space in your airway. Most patients sleep better immediately, as gasping and snoring are greatly reduced. It's the easiest, most cost-effective way to treat sleep disorders like sleep apnea.

Here's a closer look at how the oral appliance opens your airway:

Sleep Study Diagnosis

Discussing your symptoms during a consultation is usually enough to diagnose your sleep disorder. However, Dr. Malament may order a sleep study to measure the severity of your condition. This could include:

Sleep Survey

You'll fill out a survey regarding your sleeping issues, so your oral health specialist can evaluate your symptoms. 


 

Pharyngometer

This painless ultrasound tool sends sound waves into your airways so the flow of your breathing can be measured. The test only takes a few minutes.

Insurance Coverage
 

Sleep apnea treatments are usually covered by insurance to some extent. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff will be happy to discuss costs and coverages with you. At Boston Prosthodontics, we believe that living a healthy life thanks to a good night's sleep is worth every penny.
