What is sleep apnea?
Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder characterized by pauses in breathing or shallow breathing during sleep. It can lead to symptoms such as loud snoring, daytime fatigue, morning headaches, and difficulty concentrating.

What are the different types of sleep apnea?
The two main types of sleep apnea are obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), which occurs when the throat muscles relax and block the airway, and central sleep apnea (CSA), which occurs when the brain fails to send proper signals to the muscles that control breathing.

How is sleep apnea diagnosed?
Sleep apnea is typically diagnosed through a sleep study, also known as polysomnography, conducted in a sleep lab or at home. This test monitors various body functions during sleep, including breathing patterns, oxygen levels, and brain activity.

What are the treatment options for sleep apnea?
Treatment for sleep apnea may include lifestyle changes, such as weight loss and avoiding alcohol and sedatives before bedtime, as well as continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy, oral appliance therapy, and surgery in some cases.

How can a dentist help with sleep apnea treatment?
Dentists trained in dental sleep medicine, like those at Anderson & Breding Dental, can provide oral appliance therapy as a non-invasive treatment option for mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea. These custom-made devices reposition the jaw to keep the airway open during sleep.

What are the benefits of oral appliance therapy for sleep apnea?
Oral appliance therapy offers several benefits, including improved sleep quality, reduced snoring, increased daytime alertness, and greater comfort and compliance compared to CPAP therapy. It is also convenient for travel and easy to maintain.
