The most prevalent type of sleep apnea is the obstructive sleep apnea. This disorder mainly involves repeated interference of breathing during sleep. It happens when throat muscles relax during sleep, and it usually results in snoring. It has many effects such as insomnia, headaches, and drowsiness. Lack of oxygen commonly results in daytime fatigue and poor sleep. Sleep apnea is mostly associated with the increased risk of diabetes, heart attack, obesity, stroke, and high blood pressure.
Sleep apnea is managed through the use of CPAP machine that includes a mask that fits on a person to provide a constant flow of air. This keeps the airway open, and the patient sleeps well throughout the night. The machine tracks the data that is used by doctors to adjust the air pressure. It is also used to add additional treatments or medications to its maximum effectiveness.
Most doctors use the custom-fit oral appliance, which resembles an athletic mouth guard. It works by supporting the patient’s jaws when sleeping hence keeping the upper airway open. Only sleep specialists are supposed to refer a patient to a dentist. Dentists are the ones who possess the necessary training to fit the appliance.
