FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MILTON, ON – Select Greater Toronto Area sleep apnea sufferers seeking solutions for easier, safer nighttime breathing need look no further than their trusted dentists.
Dentists the world over have increasingly trusted oral appliance therapy to improve sleeping respiration and maintain unobstructed airways among sleep apnea patients with conditions unimproved by standard Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) treatments. Though not recommended for high-moderate or severe sleep apnea patients, oral therapy can alleviate issues for mild to moderate sufferers with airways routinely blocked by excess throat tissue, nasal obstructions, large or floppy tongue, enlarged uvula or tonsils, or complications due to obesity.
Dental appliances can reduce or even eliminate symptoms in the most comfortable and least invasive fashion possible. The option has been a revolution in reducing risk factors for stroke, high blood pressure, congestive heart failure and diabetes known to follow sleep apnea. Weighing treatment options in relation to the number of breathing pauses per hour of sleep, among other severity indicators, is critical. Physicians and dentists strongly recommend that sleep apnea patients undergo an overnight sleep study to develop a baseline for any treatment’s likely effectiveness.
Though a one-size-fits-all mouthguard may treat sleep apnea with some effectiveness while reducing snoring, custom mandibular advancement devices open the airway by pulling the tongue forward with a personal fit that covers the upper and lower teeth to maintain the lower jaw’s advanced position. Oasis Dental Milton’s Dr. Rick Anil Soordhar and Dr. Sunil Vick Soordhar can recommend a number of devices that dramatically improve airway patency.
