Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) Tuscaloosa

Snoring happens when air passes through an airway which is partially obstructed. This is usually the result of throat muscles that are so relaxed that they partially collapse and compromise breathing. Sleep apnea is a more serious condition because during sleep the soft tissue of the pallet and throat blocks the airway, causing the sufferer to gag or choke for a moment. Both snoring and obstructive sleep apnea stops you from getting a restful night of sleep. This can lead to stress and anxiety, headaches, sore throats, exhaustion and more.

Most people who suffer from sleep apnea are familiar with or have tried the large and cumbersome mask treatment but few know that there is an easier and more comfortable way to treat snoring and sleep apnea. A small dental device can be custom fitted for you to wear while you sleep. It helps to keep your airway open while you sleep so that you can breathe properly and sleep through the night. It’s compact and comfortable and made just for you.
