Tucson Sleep Apnea & Snoring Treatments

Let Desert Dental Group Help You Get a Good Night’s Sleep

Sleep apnea is a serious disorder that millions of individuals suffer from, and it can cause serious health complications. Sufferers are often woken during the night gasping for air, or while their significant other tries to wake them up after hearing them go without taking a breath for an extended period of time.

While most individuals that have been diagnosed with sleep apnea know that there are various treatment options to help reduce suffering, many are not familiar with the option of dentist-assisted sleep apnea treatments.

At Desert Dental Group, our dentist is proud to offer treatments for obstructive sleep apnea in Tucson. Our team can help reduce the apnea episodes that you may be experiencing and help improve your overall health.

How a Dentist Can Help

There are a few treatment options for apnea sufferers, including CPAP therapy and surgical options, but some individuals may be eligible for oral devices that are fit into the mouth by a dentist. Oral apnea therapy is a mouth guard-like device that is customized to the wearer’s mouth. When worn correctly, the device helps to keep the mouth open, opening the airway, and reducing episodes of apnea. This can be an especially good option for those patients who have CPAP intolerance, or difficulty using a CPAP unit.

Oral apnea therapy can offer many benefits, including:

  • An effective treatment to reduce apnea and snoring
  • Supporting the jaw by bringing it forward and stopping the collapse of tissues which generally causes the apnea
  • A safe alternative to CPAP machines, which some individuals have noted can cause claustrophobia and other discomfort

Depending on the severity of your apnea and your needs, we can discuss oral apnea treatments and which option may be best for you.

What Is CPAP Intolerance?

While a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) device is commonly prescribed for patients with sleep apnea. However, many do not tolerate the use device very well, or abandon the use of it altogether. Common reasons for this include improper fit of the mask, uncomfortable straps and headgear, an allergy to latex, disrupted sleep due to the noise of the machine, restricted movement during sleep, and claustrophobia. If you struggle with using a CPAP device, ask Desert Dental Group about oral apnea therapy.
