Sleep Apnea Therapy Brings Nighttime Relief to Mechanicsville Patients

At St. Mary’s Dental, we offer an overall approach to your dental health, including taking care of your temporomandibular joint issues, and addressing your sleep apnea and snoring problems.

Sometimes, it’s difficult to determine if you’re suffering from sleep apnea. Most cases of sleep apnea are discovered because other people witness your abnormal pauses in breathing.

Signs & Symptoms of Sleep Apnea

However, there are signs that you might have nighttime rest issues due to sleep apnea. Most patients who suffer from this condition usually experience several of these symptoms:

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the most common form of this condition. If you have OSA, then your breathing is consistently interrupted by a blockage to your air flow. This may be why you snore, choke, snort, gasp, or wake up feeling out of breath.

Get Tested for Sleep Apnea at St. Mary's Dental

At St. Mary’s Dental, we’ll administer the appropriate tests to determine what kind of sleep apnea you have. Then we can create an appropriate treatment plan. Our sleep apnea therapy may include a nasal mask, a dental appliance that repositions the tongue or the lower jaw, or a custom-made interlocking bite guard.
