What Is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a condition where you temporarily stop breathing as you sleep. While it comes in several forms, obstructive sleep apnea is the most common. It is caused by the relaxation of certain muscle groups while you rest and your brain sends signals to your body to wake you up and restart your breathing process.

This can include urges like using the bathroom, a choking or coughing sensation, or tossing and turning.

The sudden plunge in oxygen levels makes your heart work much harder, leading to serious cardiovascular issues like heart attack, stroke, hypertension, and atrial fibrillation—just to name a few. Not to mention preventing you from reaching stage IV sleep, the deepest and restorative part of rest that you need for sufficient energy.

How Do I Know If I Have Sleep Apnea?

The only way to be certain if you have sleep apnea is to be diagnosed with it. Set an appointment with us today so our sleep-apnea-trained dentists can go over the diagnosing steps and treatment options you may need.

Symptoms that can suggest the presence of sleep apnea include:

  • Excessive daytime sleepiness
  • Gasping or choking at night
  • Morning headaches
  • Sore throat upon awakening
  • High blood pressure
  • Chest pain during the night
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Insomnia or restless nights
  • ADHD
  • Bedwetting
  • Irritability
  • Oppositional defiance disorder
  • Anxiety
  • Depression

Sleep Apnea Treatment

As both chronic snoring and sleep apnea deal with the relaxation of muscles pertaining to the throat, mouth, and jaw, who better to help you than your airway centered dentist?

They have been trained and certified to resolve your sleep apnea and chronic snoring issues by helping create and prescribe your personalized anti-snoring appliance. There are two primary appliances we use:

1. Expansive Orthopedics Utilizing DNA/MRNA Appliance

MRNA Device
Dr. Hale is leading the field of sleep apnea treatments by utilizing expansive orthopedics for several reasons. With this technique, we can recapture space that was lost due to extractions from orthodontics, grow the dental arches to accommodate the tongue, improve nasal breathing, and provide potentially permanent reductions in someone’s apnea hypopnea index (AHI).

2. Mandibular Advancement Device (MADs)


If your partner has been complaining about your snoring for a while, they will sleep soundly when you get a mandibular advancement device (MAD). As mentioned above, snoring and sleep apnea are all about airflow and how some muscles are too relaxed and begin to interrupt that airflow.

To remedy this, MADs are worn like a mouthguard and use a unique design to place the tongue and jawbone forward, allowing no disruption of air to your throat.
