Treatment Against Sleep Apnea


Every day in Advanced Dentistry Clinic Asensio we meet a lot of patients who suffer from the sleep Apnea. In other words, they suffer from breathing pauses during the sleep.

Usually, a patient does not notice this disorder himself, yet his partner does. Since a person does not receive enough air for a couple of seconds, he inhales deeply with strength and makes a sound similar to snoring. However, it is a patient who suffers more the consequences of the sleep apnea and not his partner.

Normally, when a person suffers from the sleep Apnea, pauses of not receiving enough air can reach more than 30 times per hour. During each pause, oxygen levels in a body lower, thus depending on the frequency of the pauses, a person might spend a night with a low blood oxygen level.

One of the most important consequences that sleep Apnea may cause is that we cannnot rest properly. Our body requires a specific amount of time of a good night sleep and every time the pause ends, we fall into a light sleep again. It is normal to feel a headache and have a dry mouth when we wake up in the morning. However, during the day we feel tired, grumpy and even depressed. This is the main consequence that is felt due to the lack of sleep, the factor which affects us over the short, medium and long period of time.


Anti-snoring mouth guard

There are a lot of ways to ease the sleep Apnea, for example, changing your behaviour, daily habits or even having a surgery. However, one of the most effective methods used to help you to deal with the problem is anti-snoring mouth guard. This solution requires the help of specialists for the reason that they are the ones to adapt the correct form of the mouth guard so as teeth would not move and a patient would not feel pain, also to observe any changes in biting they may have, etc.

In Advanced Dentistry Clinic Asensio we prepare completely personalized mouth guards so that a patient would feel comfortable while using them. On the other hand, typically patients wear mouth guards only for a couple of days.

This, without any doubt, is a solution which alleviates all the consequences of sleep Apnea from the first night, allowing us to feel more relaxed and improving our mood.

Remember that the first visit in Advanced Dentistry Clinic Asensio does not cost you anything! Our specialist will tell you the exact diagnosis, take a digital radiography, a 3D scan of your mouth and prepare you a personalized plan of treatment.
