Sleep Apnea

At Devonshire Dental, we provide state-of-the-art sleep apnea treatments for our patients who are suffering from Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). OSA causes hundreds of pauses of breathing throughout the night. It is often accompanied by snoring or gasping sounds.

Some of the signs of sleep apnea to look out for include:

• Waking up frequently during the night
• Morning headaches or dry throat
• Difficulty focusing during the day
• Feeling sleepy during the day
• Heartburn

Obstructive sleep apnea: diagnosis with ultrafast CT.

Some Patients with sleep-disordered breathing often have physiologic and anatomic abnormalities of the upper airway that are demonstrable while awake. An ultrafast computed tomographic (CT) scanner can be used to measure the oropharyngeal and nasopharyngeal cross-sectional areas.

When you treat your sleep apnea, you can:

Get a Good Night’s Sleep

Sleep apnea causes chronic snoring and pauses in breathing that can keep you up night after night. Not only does sleep apnea keep the sufferer from sleeping well, it also prevents the sufferer’s bed partner or housemates from sleeping well.
You deserve to sleep soundly all night long. It feels great to wake up in the morning feeling refreshed and ready to greet the day. Sleep apnea treatment will make nighttime a relaxing time for you and your loved ones again.

Breathe with Ease

Sleep apnea treatment will keep your airway open throughout the night. When your airway remains unobstructed, you can breathe easily and freely while you sleep.

Getting enough oxygen during the night will help you avoid snoring and problems like high blood pressure. Your body wants to be able to breathe deeply without difficulty.

Be Alert and Focused

During the day, you should be able to perform your best at work. It is difficult to remain focused when you have had countless sleepless nights.

When you sleep well again, you can start enjoying better memory and focus while you go about your day. You will lead a more productive and fulfilling life.

Live a Long and Happy Life

Sleep apnea is linked to heart disease, obesity, car accidents, and other serious problems. When you seek treatment for your sleep apnea, you can lead a long, healthy, and happy life.
