If you aren’t getting quality sleep for any reason, it can negatively affect your health, leaving you feeling fatigued and moody during the day as well as contributing to more long term issues like heart disease and diabetes. One of the most common issues that disrupts your nightly sleep is sleep apnea. If you are dealing with sleep apnea we know how difficult it can be and we want to help. If you need sleep apnea treatment in Schererville, keep reading to learn about some of Distinctive Dental’s most effective treatments.

What is Sleep Apnea?

First, it can help to understand what exactly sleep apnea is. Sleep apnea is when your breathing is continuously interrupted while you sleep. There are two types of sleep apnea:

  • Obstructive sleep apnea– this is when your upper airway becomes blocked while you sleep, causing breathing disruptions. This is the most common type of sleep apnea
  • Central sleep apnea– this type occurs when your brain fails to send the right signals to your body to breathe while you sleep

Knowing which type of sleep apnea you may be suffering from is important to be able to find the best, most effective treatment for you.

How Can You Treat Sleep Apnea?

The question that is probably most on your mind is, how can I treat my sleep apnea? At Distinctive Dental, we understand the incredible importance of quality sleep and how it can affect every area of your life, that’s why we make sure to offer the most effective sleep apnea treatments we can. There are a few different types of treatments our office can provide you:

  • Lifestyle changes- for some, treatment may be as straightforward as simple lifestyle changes. Diet, exercise, and quitting alcohol and cigarettes, are all ways you can adjust your daily life to help alleviate or completely get rid of your sleep apnea
  • Oral appliances- oral appliances are one of the best ways to treat obstructive sleep apnea. These appliances are similar to mouthguards athletes wear and help keep your airways from being blocked while you sleep. Oral appliances have proven to be very effective for sleep apnea and can be custom made for optimal performance. 

Sometimes severe sleep apnea may require a medical doctor’s care and the use of a CPAP machine. These machines are often avoided as people fear their uncomfortability and hassle. However, CPAP machines have come a long way in recent years and are much more user friendly. Your dentist will work with you to help find the best, most effective, sleep apnea treatment.
