Our team of dental professionals here in Boise, Idaho, are committed to help you get a good night’s sleep. If you suffer from a form of sleep apnea or other sleeping disorder or even simply not getting enough rest at night due to breathing, there are options to help you with your breathing as well as the use of a CPAP machine.
Some treatments include positional therapy. This is when you lay on your side to get a breathable airway. You can also have surgery to remove or alter your throat tissue that is interrupting your breathing. Your dentist can also fit you for an appliance for your mouth; this device is customized for your mouth and to fix your breathing, is easily transportable, comfortable, and noiseless. This is great if you have someone sleeping nearby.
CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) devices provide the dentist or doctor-recommended amount of air needed for you to get the proper amount of air during the night. This is done through a mask and tube, typically in one the options of a nasal prong mask, nasal mask, full-face mask, or a pillow. These are attached only when you’re asleep.
Depending on your facial and breathing specifications, each option will be measured towards the best fit to avoid any reduction in the outline of the jaw. This can be caused by a bad fit pushing on your incisor teeth or dental arches.
