Anatomy of tongue, jaws, nose and face, decrease in muscle tension from hormonal changes, congested sinuses, weight gain can all cause constricted airway. Constricted airway stops breathing or makes you breath as if you were breathing through a coffee straw. This causes oxygen levels to drop, stressing your heart to beat much faster and harder to make up for the loss in oxygen, disturbances in sleep, and sometimes waking up at night.
Oral Sleep Appliance gently holds your lower jaw forward while sleeping, which allows for an open airway.
Allows for less interruptions in sleep, which means sleeping and feeling better.
Many patients can successfully treat Sleep Apnea or Upper Airway resistance by using custom-fiitted Oral Sleep Appliances. Ask us how you can sleep, live and feel better today!
Are you tired of constantly being tired? Have you noticed someone who snore at night, chokes while sleeping, or wakes up out of breath? An estimated 18 million Americans have Sleep Apnea, and 80-90% remain undiagnosed. Undiagnosed Airway Problems such as Sleep Apnea or Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome can impact the productivity and quality of life, cause significant health problems, and increase risks of serious health conditions.
Dental Sleep Medicine is the treatment of Airway Problems using Oral Sleep Appliances. Oral Sleep Appliances are equally as effective and much more comfortable than the often not-used and awkward CPAP machines.
Dental Sleep Medicine is personal to our team. Dr. Chang’s journey into Dental Sleep Medicine started when his own father suffered from severe Sleep Apnea but could not tolerate CPAP machines. Later, Dr. Chang was also diagnosed with moderate Sleep Apnea, and Dr. Kim’s mother was diagnosed with mild Sleep Apnea.
Chances are you or someone you know may have Airway Problems as well. Middle-aged men like Dr. Chang’s father are often suspected of having Airway Problems. However, young and fit men like Dr. Chang and young and fit women can have Airway Problems too. Middle-aged women like Dr. Kim’s mother and even children suffer from undiagnosed Airway Problems like Sleep Apnea and Upper Airway Resistance.
