We can help, but only if you call us at 812-913-6093 to schedule a consultation at Kirchner Dental. We can help you set up an at-home sleep study, which could be your first step toward getting a good night’s sleep.

Improve Your Sleep Quality With an Oral Appliance

Doctors often recommend CPAP therapy for sleep apnea, yet 50 percent of CPAP users give up on their treatment. Wearing a mask while you sleep can be uncomfortable and irritating. That’s assuming you aren’t bothered by air pushing into your mouth or nose or by the sound of the machine.

As a comfortable alternative, we can design a custom-fitted oral appliance that you wear while you sleep. It shifts the position of your jaw slightly to keep your airway open. This allows you to:

  • Avoid wearing a mask
  • Not have your sleep disturbed by a noisy CPAP
  • Get the deep, healthy sleep you deserve
  • Stop snoring

Treat Sleep Apnea Symptoms for a Happier Life

When you have obstructive sleep apnea, your airway closes as you fall asleep. When it’s completely blocked, your body wakes you up (although you may not remember it). This can happen dozens of times every hour and hundreds of times every night. Each time, your sleep cycle starts over, which means you don’t get the deep sleep you need to feel rejuvenated in the morning.

As your airway closes, it also makes your snoring louder. That’s why your significant other can’t get any sleep either – or why you may be banished to the couch. Along with chronic snoring and relationship problems, this disorder can also cause:

  • Dry mouth and sore throat in the mornings
  • Daily fatigue
  • Mood swings, irritability, and depression
  • Weight gain
  • Lapses in memory and concentration
  • Problems staying alert behind the wheel

Men, people who are overweight, and people over 40 years old have a higher risk of sleep apnea, but it can affect anyone regardless of gender, weight, or age. Sleep apnea also has been linked to teeth grinding. We can help with that, too.

You feel better when you are well-rested. Our sleep apnea treatment in Jeffersonville, IN has helped countless patients enjoy better rest and health. It could help you too! Contact Kirchner Dental at 812-913-6093 for an appointment or schedule online.

Common Questions About Sleep Apnea Treatment

What is sleep apnea?

Obstructive sleep apnea, the most common type of sleep apnea, occurs when your air passages become temporarily blocked repeatedly while you sleep. Your tongue and other soft tissues in the back of your throat relax to the point that your airway is restricted, causing you to quit breathing for a few seconds. This cycle can repeat itself dozens of times per hour in severe sleep apnea sufferers.

Why is sleep apnea bad?

Sleep apnea is a serious condition because it interrupts critical airflow while sleeping. It can leave you feeling lethargic during the day and interfere with your work productivity and your personal life. In addition, sleep apnea has also been linked to several serious health conditions like high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, and depression.

How is sleep apnea treated?

If you receive a sleep apnea diagnosis, our practice will take impressions and have a custom-fit sleep apnea appliance made for you to wear while sleeping. It will gently move your lower jaw forward to help keep your airway open. It can even reduce snoring. You’ll sleep better, feel better, and improve your overall health.

Are sleep apnea machines quiet?

CPAP machines do produce some noise, which can be annoying to you and your bed partner. Silence is just one of the advantages of treating sleep apnea with a mouthguard instead of a CPAP. Most people also find it easier to adjust to and more comfortable. In addition, you can easily transport a mouthguard by simply putting it into a purse or pocket.

Will sleep apnea go away?

Unfortunately, sleep apnea is not something that will go away on its own. You can find dramatic improvement through treatment and lifestyle changes. Weight loss, smoking cessation, and abstaining from alcohol are all beneficial in addition to sleep apnea treatment with an oral appliance here in our office.
