Oral Appliance Therapy for Obstructive Sleep Apnea in Philadelphia, PA

Ask yourself these simple questions to determine if Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) could be holding you back from the healthy, energetic life you deserve.

Are you sleeping well?
Do you snore?
Are you always tired?
Do you have high blood pressure or diabetes?
Are you overweight?
Do you have frequent headaches?

If you answered yes to any of these, you could have OSA. Approximately half of all people who snore loudly have sleep apnea. According to the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, that’s up to 18 million Americans. Are you one of them?

OSA is a serious sleep disorder that occurs when the tongue and soft palate collapse onto the back of the throat, stopping airflow. The oxygen level drops and the brain moves out of deep sleep. The person partially awakens and begins breathing again, often with a loud gasp. This process is repeated over and over throughout the night with each apnea lasting from 10 seconds to 3 minutes.

OSA sufferers stop breathing and are deprived of oxygen hundreds of times a night. Not only does OSA prevent the sufferer from achieving deep, restful sleep, it can put a tremendous strain on the heart and the body, greatly reducing the lifespan of the sufferer. This is a serious medical condition requiring diagnosis by a physician, but you can be on your way to a better night’s sleep just by scheduling an appointment to learn about dental sleep apnea treatment.

In Philadelphia, we can successfully treat OSA with a small, comfortable, custom-fit mouthpiece. Similar to a retainer, the oral appliance sleep apnea device gently repositions the lower jaw, preventing the airway from becoming obstructed. This life-changing solution can help you sleep through the night so you wake up rested and refreshed every day.

If you think you or someone you love has OSA, don’t suffer needlessly. We can help. We offer OSA Therapy in our West Chester, Blue Bell and Allentown offices. Call now to schedule an appointment for a free consultation and be on your way to the best rest of your life!
