Snoring and Sleep Apnea Options

at Roper Aesthetic Dentistry
Serving Vancouver and Vancouver Island, British Columbia

Thousands of British Columbia residents may suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), a sleeping disorder that involves airway blockage caused by the negative pressure of inhalation.

Sleep apnea is often indicated by loud and frequent snoring. OSA sufferers can experience countless episodes of halted breathing per night, discovering their problem only if a partner takes notice, or the episodes are severe enough to waken them.

While most sleep apnea cases are minor, moderate and severe sleep apnea sufferers can experience potentially life-threatening consequences.

The effects of snoring/sleep apnea may include:

  • Sleep deprivation
  • Loss of concentration and confusion during the day
  • Hypoxia (low oxygen levels)
  • Hypertension, stroke and heart attack induced by lack of oxygen

Treatment for snoring and sleep apnea

Treatment is customized and may include a variety of measures, from lifestyle changes like limiting caffeine and increasing exercise to the regular use of oral appliances.

The comfortable Suad Appliance is one commonly recommended oral appliance, preferred for its ability to minimize or eliminate stopped breathing episodes and control snoring. The Suad works by holding the teeth together in a position that keeps the airway free of obstruction. If worn consistently, they give you a much better chance of getting a good night’s sleep.
