If you have always wondered what it would be like to get good nights sleep because your partner snores, schedule an appointment with Dr. Jack Ringer for an OAT for OSA consultation. Known as oral appliance therapy, OAT for OSA works.

Dental sleep medicine is an incredible treatment that is less invasive than surgery and more comfortable than CPAP therapy. In fact, you and your partner will both sleep better with a dental sleep medicine consultation in Anaheim Hills.

They Don’t Know

People who suffer from obstructive sleep apnea aren’t always aware they suffer. In fact, people who live alone rarely know they have OSA.

This is because the sleep interruptions happen so quickly that the body doesn’t have time to realize the cessation in breathing.

On the other hand, if the person doesn’t live alone obstructive sleep apnea causes disruption to the person suffering along with everyone else in the household.

Dental sleep medicine and OAT for OSA stop the madness by opening up the passageways when the OSA sufferer sleeps.

If you live alone watch for the following symptoms if you suspect you snore and/or suffer from obstructive sleep apnea.

  • Loud Snoring
  • Waking up Gasping for Breath
  • Cessations in Breathing Witnessed by Another
  • Daytime Sleepiness
  • Insomnia
  • Irritability
  • Lack of Libido
  • Mood Swings
  • Depression
  • Waking with Dry Mouth
  • Morning Headaches and Neck Aches

Of course if you suffer you may not have all of the above symptoms. With that being said, only a sleep specialist can confirm your OAT for OSA diagnosis.

OAT for Snoring and OSA

After you have taken the step and been diagnosed with OSA talk to Dr. Ringer and his Dental Cosmetics team. A customized oral appliance will be made to help your jaw relax into a more comfortable position.

Designed to help you with sleeping disorders, including snoring, you’ll be glad you were diagnosed or made the switch from CPAP to OAT for OSA.

CPAP Therapy

While CPAP Therapy is the oldest and most trusted solution for OSA it isn’t always favored among those who suffer. Unfortunately not all machines are designed with comfort in mind.

Think of it this way, how would you like to sleep with a mask covering your face? In addition that mask is connected to a hose and a machine that forces the passageways in your throat to stay open.

When all is said and done comfortable therapy is the best way to combat the symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea.
