Dental Sleep Medicine

Dental Sleep medicine is an area of practice that focuses on the employment of oral appliance therapy to treat sleep-disordered breathing, as well as snoring and obstructive sleep disorder (OSA). Sleep disorder may be a chronic condition that happens when your muscles relax during sleep, permitting soft tissue to collapse and block the airway. These respiration pauses are followed by brief awakenings that disturb your sleep.

What is sleep apnea?

Sleep apnea is a malady where you have frequent, recurring gaps in breathing while sleeping. These gaps can last for up to 60 seconds. They are caused by soft tissue in the back of the throat that relaxes and closes the airway. When the brain is not getting enough oxygen it interferes with important physical processes.

 

There are three different kinds of sleep apnea. They are categorized by the cause of the cessation of breathing. Obstructive sleep apnea is a condition where your throat muscles relax. Central sleep apnea occurs when your brain doesn’t send proper signals to control your breathing. The final type is called complex sleep apnea syndrome. This form is present when a patient has both of the other two types.
