Sleep apnea is a prevalent sleep disorder that not only disrupts your sleep but can also have significant health implications. At Tolland Hill Family Dental, we specialize in providing effective treatment for sleep apnea, helping our patients in Tolland achieve a more restful and healthier sleep.

What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea occurs when the muscles supporting the airway relax during sleep, leading to a temporary blockage of airflow. This obstruction can cause the individual to wake up frequently throughout the night. Over 12 million American adults are affected by this condition, often without realizing it until someone else observes their symptoms.

Sleep Apnea Warning Signs

Recognizing sleep apnea is crucial for timely treatment. Key warning signs include:

  • Snoring: Especially louder when lying on your back.
  • Continuous Loud Snoring: Often accompanied by choking, gasping, or snorting sounds.
  • Daytime Fatigue: Despite a full night’s sleep.
  • Morning Headaches: Frequent headaches upon waking.
  • Memory and Concentration Issues: Difficulty focusing or remembering.
  • Mood Changes: Feelings of depression or irritability.
  • Dry Mouth or Throat Sensitivity: Upon waking.

Oral Appliances for Sleep Apnea Treatment

After a sleep apnea diagnosis from a medical doctor, we can customize an oral appliance for your treatment. These appliances are specifically designed to maintain an open airway while you sleep by:

  • Advancing the Lower Jaw: Slightly moving the lower jaw forward to keep the airway open.
  • Preventing Tongue Collapse: Keeping the tongue from falling back and obstructing the airway.

Additional Benefits: Snoring and Teeth Grinding Relief

Our oral appliances not only help in treating sleep apnea but also provide relief from snoring and teeth grinding, often associated with this condition. By maintaining an open airway and proper jaw positioning, these appliances reduce snoring and protect your teeth from the effects of grinding.

What Our Patients Say

Never had I had so much attention paid to my whole mouth health. Performed mouth cancer checks and measured gum gaps (didn't know this was a thing). A lot of time with doctor, not just the hygienist. Explained everything they were doing and why.
Daniel Keener
The team at this office was very kind, understanding, patient and persistent in working with my child. She is highly anxious at the dentist and they took their time to help her through the experience. Would highly recommend them to others!
