Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a condition where the soft tissue collapse and block the airway due to your muscles becoming overly relaxed during sleep. This results in you not breathing, lasting anywhere from several seconds to a minute (or more).

If left untreated, sleep apnea can be dangerous, and even life-threatening in some cases.

If you, or someone you know, struggle with snoring, excessive daytime sleepiness, memory problems, irritability, fatigue, and insomnia, it may be time to consult an expert to explore whether the culprit is obstructive sleep apnea.

An oral appliance is a proven effective treatment option for many sleep apnea patients. These are devices which are fitted by a dentist or orthodontist and which the patient wears during sleep.

Our CBCT unit allows us to take detailed low radiation 3D x-rays that help us identify issues like airway restrictions and other Breathing Wellness issues not easily seen on regular x-rays. If you've been diagnosed with sleep apnea, Park Dental Wellness Centre in Sherwood Park welcomes your call to explore creating an oral appliance to help treat your condition.
