Sleep Apnea Therapy in Lawrenceburg
As part of our comprehensive menu of general dentistry services, our team offers snoring cessation services and sleep apnea therapy. Sleep apnea is a disorder that affects approximately 18 million Americans, though it is often undiagnosed because those who suffer from the condition are unaware that they have it. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is characterized by numerous pauses in breathing throughout the night as the affected patient sleeps.
As breathing is persistently interrupted during sleep, blood oxygen levels decrease. The brain attempts to send signals to the rest of the body to awaken causing disrupted and restless sleep. Symptoms of sleep apnea include daytime fatigue, excessive snoring and gasping sounds during sleep, depression, and more. Untreated, sleep apnea contributes to the development of other health conditions including high blood pressure, heart problems, liver disorders, and accidents at work or behind the wheel due to exhaustion.
Fortunately, treatment is non-invasive and affordable. With a custom oral appliance worn only at night, Dr. Oyler helps you achieve the fully restful sleep you deserve, all while reducing your risk of complications associated with obstructive sleep apnea. We look forward to helping you improve your quality of life and overall health with proven sleep apnea therapy.
