At the office of Pinnacle Dental Group our professional team provides a comprehensive range of services to help maintain your oral health and overall well being. Obstructive sleep apnea is a serious and potentially life-threatening disorder in which breathing is briefly and repeatedly interrupted while you’re asleep, causing fragmented sleep and low blood-oxygen levels. The signs and symptoms of this disorder during sleeping hours may include, loud snoring, episodes of breathing cessation, abrupt awakenings, episodes of gasping for air, along with difficulties getting a good night’s sleep. Sleep apnea can lead to a morning headache, excessive daytime sleepiness, difficulty concentrating, and irritability. For people affected by 13088 sleep apnea, the combination of disturbed sleep and decreased oxygen flow may lead to hypertension, heart disease and mood and memory problems.
In cases of mild to moderate sleep apnea, a dental appliance may be the most appropriate and effective method of care. At the office of Pinnacle Dental Group, our 13088 sleep apnea treatment involves the fabrication of a precise fitting and comfortable custom oral appliance that can be worn similarly to a mouthguard or orthodontic retainer. When placed in the mouth at bedtime this appliance helps to keep the tongue and soft tissues in the back of your throat from blocking the airway, allowing for a full and unobstructed airflow during sleep. Every one of our sleep apnea appliances are individually made to fit the exact contours of a patient’s mouth, so the appliance is comfortable and easy to care for, as well as fully portable.
At Pinnacle Dental Group we are committed to remaining current with the latest trends and research in the field to deliver the high-standard of care you deserve. Whether you or a family member requires sleep apnea treatment, a dental checkup, restorative treatment, a cosmetic smile makeover, the replacement of missing teeth, or any other dental service, you can rest assured that your smile is in the best of hand. We take great pride in improving our patients’ overall health and quality of life and hope to do the same for you.
