Sleep apnea appliances are worn much like retainers or mouth guards, but they perform an entirely different function. One design keeps the lower jaw gently forward, which helps keep the airways open while the other design prevents the tongue and soft tissues from collapsing into the airway during sleep, the primary cause of obstructive sleep apnea.
Nearly 20 million Americans are currently suffering from sleep apnea, but not all of them have been diagnosed or are properly treated. Severe sleep apnea expert, Dr. Martirosyan, provides a range of services that can help meet the needs of patients. She is especially trained to locate the best type of appliance and provide a fully customized fit.
Untreated sleep apnea can result in serious health problems. Because the airway can be obstructed hundreds of times a night, blood oxygen levels can be dangerously low. The heart, brain and other organs can become stressed due to the lack of oxygen. With sleep apnea, the brain briefly rouses a person from sleep to reopen the airways and improve breathing. Sleep apnea patients may not even be aware of this, but it can still disrupt sleep enough to leave them feeling fatigued, drowsy and irritable throughout the day.
