Snooze Soundly With a Custom Oral Appliance
Dr. Rod Gleave is certified to use a SomnoDent sleep apnea oral appliance. The adjustable oral appliance slowly realigns your lower jaw position to help you breathe better – without causing pain to your jaw joint. It has been effective in treating snoring and mild to moderate cases of obstructive sleep apnea. It is also beneficial in helping patients who have trouble using a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine.
To see if a sleep apnea appliance can help you, Dr. Gleave can provide you with equipment for a home sleep test. If you require more involved treatment, he will refer you to a trusted sleep physician.
Compared to a CPAP, a sleep appliance is:
- Less invasive
- More comfortable
- Easier to transport
- More convenient, as it doesn’t require batteries or electricity
Don’t Ignore Sleep Apnea Symptoms
The soft tissue in the back of your mouth can collapse while you sleep, blocking your airway and making it difficult to receive oxygen. The unpleasant symptoms can include:
- Frequent fatigue
- Memory loss
- Weight gain
- Acid reflux
Research has also linked sleep apnea to heart failure and strokes, among other health problems. Call Rod Gleave, DMD in Salt Lake City, UT right away at (801) 923-6406 if you suspect you may have apnea. With our sleep apnea treatment, you’ll sleep well and feel better during your day.
