Have you been suffering with sleep apnea and have been told that an oral appliance may be able to solve your sleep apnea problem? If so, you will definitely want to come in to our dental practice and learn more about how Norwalk oral appliances can help you feel better and stop your sleep apnea symptoms.
At our dental practice, Alan B Rosenthal, DDS, our expert and highly trained sleep apnea specialist and dentist is Dr. Alan B Rosenthal. Patients who suffer from untreated sleep apnea can have a very difficult time during the day; they may feel tired all the time and then have trouble falling asleep. Sleep apnea patients can even wake up in the middle of the night and then have trouble concentrating during the day because they are so tired and have not really received any quality of sleep. These symptoms can all be related to sleep apnea or snoring. Our dentist, Dr. Rosenthal, is able to provide patients with Norwalk oral appliances that can help reduce or eliminate the symptoms of sleep apnea or snoring.
Dr. Rosenthal is a sleep apnea specialist. Sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder that can go on to cause other health problems. When a person has sleep apnea they will actually temporarily stop breathing many times when they sleep. Sleep apnea can also cause headaches and even personality changes. When a person has sleep apnea they will often snore loudly at night and then gasp for air. At our practice, our sleep apnea and snoring patients can be fitted for Norwalk oral appliances which will keep the sleep apnea or snoring from occurring. Oral appliance therapy is a very important treatment option for patients with sleep apnea. The potential health risks of sleep apnea are very serious, and can include: high blood pressure; heart disease; diabetes; depression; and even stroke. An oral appliance is a small plastic device that the patient will keep in his or her mouth during sleep. It is similar to a sports mouth guard and will help keep the tongue and soft tissues in the back of the throat from collapsing. This will enable the patient to keep an open airway during their sleep.
