Sleeping on the job? You may have sleep apnea. But how can snoring be that bad? Simple. Obstructive sleep apnea causes breathing difficulties when you sleep, which leads to snoring and then to sudden wakefulness. And we all know that if we don’t get enough sleep, the world starts to look a little more difficult.
That’s why Dr. Clark D Cash may suggest an oral appliance to help you get the sleep you need. Custom tailored to fit your mouth, these appliances help improve your breathing so you can have a better quality of, well, everything. For more information about sleep apnea treatments in Frankfort, Kentucky, schedule a visit with our orthodontist by calling 502-227-1931 today!
As sleep apnea has a significant impact on your overall health, we strongly encourage you to schedule an appointment with our orthodontist and your sleep physician as soon as possible. Individuals with sleep apnea are at an increased risk of developing or worsening a number of serious medical conditions, ranging from problems with heart disease and diabetes to weight gain and issues with the respiratory and immune system. Sleep apnea also increases your risk of accidents while driving or at work, developing behavioral disorders such as depression or anxiety, and generally lowers your quality of life.
Our orthodontist and team can help you improve your health, well-being and quality of life by providing oral appliance therapy. Take the steps you need to breathe easily, get the rest you need, and enjoy a healthier lifestyle.
Oral appliances are designed to be comfortable and non-invasive, and they are a good option for anyone who snores or shows other signs and symptoms of sleep apnea. They are also an excellent option for anyone who has already been diagnosed with sleep apnea and cannot tolerate a CPAP machine.
