Does your loud, chronic snoring regularly disrupt your and your family’s nights? Do you feel exhausted in the morning hours, even after seemingly sleeping for a full eight hours the night before? If these situations seem familiar, you may be a victim of sleep apnea, which is a potentially dangerous sleep disorder that can not only rob you of a good night’s rest, but significantly harm your health and wellbeing the longer it goes untreated.
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) occurs when a patient’s breathing regularly stops while unconscious because of a partial or full blockage over the airway. In order to correct this problem, Dr. Silver (also known as “The Jazz Dentist”) can provide a custom-made oral appliance that repositions the jaw and/or tongue, allowing for easy, uninterrupted breathing.
