Sleep Apnea Therapy: Finally Get the Rest You Deserve
Sleep apnea is a very serious disorder where a person’s breathing is blocked multiple times during the night. The most common kind of sleep apnea is called obstructive sleep apnea, and with this condition, the blockage occurs because the soft tissues in the mouth and throat relax and collapse into the airway. When this happens, the body panics and partially wakes up to restore breathing. This can happen hundreds of times a night, and it prevents a person from getting the deep, restful sleep they need to feel awake and focused during the day.
If you frequently have to deal with chronic exhaustion, moods swings, or focus/memory problems, sleep apnea could very likely be the cause. Dr. Twohig can provide relief from these symptoms using a small, custom-made oral appliance. It will slightly shift the jaw forward in order to keep the airway open and clear, allowing a person to sleep peacefully throughout the night.
