Are you one of those 30 million sufferers that have undiagnosed sleep apnea? Are you wearing a CPAP machine and can not tolerate using it? Read on to find out how Dr. Spoont can help you today.

Sleep apnea is a potentially serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts. If you snore loudly and feel tired even after a full night’s sleep, you might have sleep apnea.

The most common type of sleep apnea is known as obstructive sleep apnea, which occurs when your throat muscles relax. Some common sleep apnea symptoms include:

  • Waking up with a very sore or dry throat
  • Loud snoring
  • Occasionally waking up with a choking or gasping sensation
  • Sleepiness or lack of energy during the day
  • Sleepiness while driving
  • Morning headaches
  • Restless sleep
  • Forgetfulness, mood changes

Untreated Sleep Apnea can cause many serious medical problems including:

  • Heart Attack
  • AFIB
  • High blood pressure
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Weight gain
  • Dementia
  • Stroke

Sleep Apnea Treatment

Discover oral appliance therapy.

The American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AADSM) recommends oral appliance therapy as an alternative first-line treatment for patients diagnosed with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea. As well as those patients that can not tolerate wearing a CPAP device.

When to wear them

They are worn during your sleep and are similar to sports mouthguards or orthodontic appliances.

How they work

These appliances hold your lower jaw forward just enough to keep the airway open and prevent your tongue and muscles from collapsing and blocking your airway.

A definitive diagnosis of sleep apnea can be made only with a sleep study conducted during a visit to a sleep lab, usually overnight, or a home study performed with special equipment. Our office will help facilitate your testing and diagnosis.

If you test positive, you will receive a detailed report signed by a physician who is a specialist in Sleep Medicine and in consultation with your physician guidance from Dr. Spoont on how to proceed.
