One of the many valuable services that we offer here at Dental Arts of Darien is represented by our sleep apnea treatments. Obstructive sleep apnea, or OSA, is the most common form of sleep apnea, and it can have many negative consequences. Fortunately, we have solutions that are effective in reducing or eliminating the effects of it.
If Norwalk sleep apnea is not addressed promptly and properly, it can result in heart problems and other health difficulties. Our treatment is focused on getting the best possible outcome, while being easy to use and portable, because we understand that there are times when you are not sleeping at home. Any method that is difficult to bring from place to place will not be as attractive an option. We combat Norwalk sleep apnea with an oral appliance, which has advantages over CPAP, which stands for continuous positive airway pressure, and is used frequently to address OSA. Not everyone feels comfortable with CPAP. It operates on electricity, so you need to have a nearby outlet. In addition, some people have side-effects from using CPAP, among which are bloating, anxiety, nasal congestion, headaches, dry mouth, and continued drowsiness. In contrast, our oral appliance performs the same function as CPAP, in terms of keeping your airway open so that you will not suffer with the impact of OSA. It resembles a simple retainer, so it’s extremely easy to wear, and can be used anywhere, without the requirement of electricity for it to work. Because of this, you can take it with you when you travel. It’s compact and won’t arouse any unwanted interest from airport security.
Don’t continue to suffer with Norwalk sleep apnea, especially now that you have an answer that won’t require any difficulties or complications. Call us right now and set up an appointment.
