Sleep Apnea Therapy in Amityville, NY

Do you go through your days feeling tired and having difficulty focusing? Do you wake up with headaches or a sore, dry throat? Does your spouse complain about your snoring? These problems could be caused by sleep apnea, a common problem that requires special attention from a dentist trained in sleep apnea therapy. Dr. Sasha Cekada in Amityville, New York is one such dentist, offering sleep apnea therapy to help patients with this problem overcome the issue and sleep more easily.

The symptoms of sleep apnea include:

Obstructive sleep apnea is generally caused by soft oral tissues collapsing the airway. Therefore, sleep apnea therapy is designed to keep the airway clear to prevent the pauses in breathing that characterize sleep apnea.

There are various ways to treat sleep apnea, but we focus on intraoral sleep apnea therapy appliances at our Amityville, NY dental office. We often use the Moses appliance, which helps advance the tongue to keep the airway clear. The Moses appliance for sleep apnea therapy can help lessen the activity of elevator muscles, clenching, and grinding.

Why is it so important to receive sleep apnea therapy if you’re suffering from this problem? Sleep apnea is annoying. It causes you to snore loudly, which can be especially annoying for your spouse. And, of course, it causes you to be extremely tired throughout the day, making it difficult to be productive and enjoy your life. But the problem is even bigger than annoyance and discomfort. Sleep apnea may contribute to serious health problems, such as heart attack. In this way, sleep apnea therapy may actually save your life.
