Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a medical condition that affects over 19 million Americans. Untreated, it can significantly increase the risk of heart failure, stroke, diabetes, weight gain and more. 😱
The good news is that a CPAP isn’t the only option for treating sleep apnea. A dentist can work a sleep physician to help treat the condition with another alternative.
Many medical professionals (both dentists and physicians) recommend a custom-designed oral appliance. It aligns the jaw and helps open the airway for improved, healthy breathing during sleep.
