What Is Sleep Apnea?
“Sleep apnea occurs when you go to bed at night, and you fall asleep and the tongue starts to fall back into the airway and plugs up the airway so you can’t breathe.”
OVER TWENTY MILLION AMERICANS SUFFER FROM SLEEP APNEA
Most of the patients who suffer from sleep apnea don’t even realize they have it. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) occurs due to a blockage in the airway that causes the patient to stop breathing several times while they sleep each night. Many of our patients find relief from sleep apnea using our convenient dental appliances. They tell us our appliances are much easier to use than their CPAP machine. If you’re concerned that you or someone you care about could be suffering from sleep apnea, call 636-625-1225 to schedule your consultation with Dr. Boscia today. He’ll make sure you get the correct diagnosis and the treatment that’s right for you.
