Sleep Apnea

Your sleep should be a peaceful retreat, a moment to recharge your energy. However, the disruptive effects of sleep apnea can interrupt this vital process. At Coral Gables Dentistry, we're dedicated to helping you overcome this issue, ensuring you enjoy a restful night's sleep.

What is Sleep Apnea?  

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder characterized by repeated pauses in breathing during sleep. These interruptions, known as apneas, can last for seconds to minutes and may occur multiple times throughout the night.

What Are the Risk Factors for Sleep Apnea?

  • Obesity: Excess weight, especially around the neck, can contribute to airway obstruction.
  • Age: Sleep apnea is more common in older adults.
  • Gender: Men are at a higher risk than women, though the risk increases in women with obesity.
  • Family History: A family history of sleep apnea may increase susceptibility.
  • Smoking: Smokers have a higher risk of developing sleep apnea.
  • Medical Conditions: High blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and prior strokes are associated with a higher risk.

How Is Sleep Apnea Treated?

Coral Gables Dentistry offers non-surgical treatments for sleep apnea, focusing on conservative approaches. Mouth appliances, such as mandibular advancement devices (MADs) or tongue-retaining devices (TRDs), can help reposition the jaw and tongue to keep the airway open during sleep. These comfortable alternatives provide effective relief without the need for invasive procedures.

How Effective Are Sleep Apnea Treatments?

The effectiveness of sleep apnea treatments varies, but many patients experience significant improvement with non-surgical approaches. Regular use of prescribed devices can lead to better sleep quality, reduced daytime sleepiness, and improved overall well-being.
