Sleep apnea is a condition where a person’s airway becomes blocked or congested during sleep. This condition has been connected to long-term brain and heart weakening, as well as contributing to a lack of quality sleep. The most common sign of sleep apnea is snoring or gasping during sleep. If your partner has been complaining, or you’ve woken up in the middle of the night gasping for air, it might be time to consult Dr. Skutak for an evaluation.
Finding the right
Sleep Apnea Treatment
Depending on the severity of your sleep apnea, Dr. Skutak may suggest a night guard appliance. A custom night guard appliance can position your jaw in the right spot to keep your airway open throughout the night. For severe cases of sleep apnea, a CPAP machine may be recommended by your physician. This machine forces air into your airways while you sleep, keeping them open and active. Dr. Skutak can evaluate your symptoms and jaw in order to make the best recommendation for your needs.
