Are you tired of feeling restless and fatigued even after a full night's sleep? Have you ever considered that the culprit behind your exhaustion might be something more than just snoring? Sleep apnea, a common yet often undiagnosed sleep disorder, could be the answer.
Sleep apnea treatment can dramatically improve your quality of life. It stops your breathing up to 90 times an hour, interrupting your sleep every time it does. That’s why prompt treatment of this condition is paramount.
Treating sleep apnea ensures you have quality sleep at night so you can wake up refreshed for the coming day. It also lowers your risk of heart complications and stroke. Lastly, sleep apnea treatment reduces the risk of depression resulting from sleep disruption and insomnia.
Sleep apnea can affect children as well as adults?

The dentist will first examine your symptoms, medical history, and oral structures to determine the severity of your sleep apnea. Dentists will recommend night guards for patients with mild to moderate sleep apnea. If you fit the bill, they will create a customized treatment plan detailing the procedure, the date of the procedure, and other crucial details.
The dentist uses a putty-like material or digital scanner to get impressions of your teeth. They then send these impressions to a lab to fabricate your custom night guard. Once the night guard is ready, the dentist will schedule an appointment to fit it (they’ll place the night guard in your mouth, ensuring it fits properly and effectively opens the airway).
The dentist will ask you to wear the night guard while sleeping. They’ll keep checking on your progress, specifically whether you experience any more sleep disruptions. They might schedule follow-up appointments to check on the same and make adjustments if necessary. If everything checks out, they’ll provide instructions for caring for your night guard and tips for managing sleep apnea.
