Those with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) may stop breathing hundreds of times each night and not even realize it. This situation inhibits restorative sleep. Since sleep affects every aspect of your well-being, OSA is a destructive condition. It’s associated with:
High blood pressure
Dr. Levenson treats OSA, and is a member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM). A member of the AADSM, Dr. Levenson offers sleep remedies in Worcester MA that improve your quality of life.
Conventionally, sleep apnea is treated with CPAP therapy. These machines are generally bulky, uncomfortable, and loud. Some people never get used to them. The oral appliances that Dr. Levenson provides are easy-to-wear. They resemble lightweight, transparent plastic aligners designed to straighten teeth, and are worn like a sports mouth-guard or retainer. The difference is, these customized appliances move the jaw forward and the tongue out of the way, so your airway remains open and unobstructed. You breathe healthy and without interruption throughout the night.
Levenson Smile patients also appreciate these well-fitting appliances because they’re:
Easy to pack
Dr. Levenson is often on the front lines of detecting sleep apnea and related problems. If he suspects this condition is to blame for symptoms such as snoring, he’ll refer you to a sleep specialist for evaluation. With accurate diagnosis, you’ll return to Levenson Smile and discuss options for treatment.
As with other types of dental appliances, your sleep apnea device will be made from information collected via models of your mouth. During routine, follow-up appointments, the doctor checks the device for proper fit and will make adjustments as needed. Restore sleep and a whole lot more.
