Understanding Sleep Apnea

At Chicago Loop Dentistry, we understand the critical impact that sleep apnea can have on your health, well-being, and quality of life. Our dedicated team of dental professionals is committed to providing the most effective sleep apnea treatment options in Chicago, including the latest in oral appliance therapy.

Sleep apnea is a common sleep disorder characterized by repeated interruptions in breathing during sleep. These interruptions can lead to a host of health issues, including daytime fatigue, high blood pressure, and an increased risk of heart disease. The condition is often associated with the relaxation of throat muscles, which can obstruct the airway and interrupt breathing.

Oral Appliance Therapy

Oral appliance therapy has emerged as a highly effective treatment for sleep apnea, particularly for those with mild to moderate conditions or for patients who cannot tolerate CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) machines. These custom-fitted dental devices are designed to keep the airway open during sleep, either by repositioning the lower jaw or by holding the tongue in place.

Our experts at Chicago Loop Dentistry utilize state-of-the-art technology to design and fit oral appliances that are comfortable, easy to wear, and effective in reducing or eliminating the symptoms of sleep apnea. Our patients often report significant improvements in sleep quality and overall health, thanks to these tailor-made solutions.

    The Benefits of Dental Appliances for Sleep Apnea

    Dental appliances are a great choice for people with sleep apnea because they’re simple to use, you can take them anywhere, and you don’t have to undergo surgery. They’re especially good for people who travel a lot or find it hard to use CPAP machines. These machines can be big and need to be plugged in, but dental appliances are small, like a retainer, and can go wherever you go without any hassle. This is a great anti-snoring device that can be a better option for your sleep apnea needs.

    Many patients prefer these dental devices over CPAP machines because they’re quieter and more comfortable. CPAP machines work by pushing air into your throat to keep your airways open while you sleep, but they require wearing a mask, which can be annoying for some. On the other hand, snoring applicances are worn in the mouth and work by keeping your airway open in a more natural way, so you can sleep without a big machine next to you.

    Here at Chicago Loop Dentistry, we’re all about making sure you get a snoring mouthpiece that fits you perfectly. Everyone’s mouth is different, so we take the time to measure your mouth and make an appliance that’s just for you. This means it’ll be more comfortable and work better at keeping your airway open while you sleep.
