Cincinnati, OH -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/24/2014 -- Sleep apnea is a condition affecting millions of people across the country. Commonly referred to as chronic snoring, sleep apnea is actually the relaxation of the throat muscles causing a collapse or constriction that impedes the flow of air, which can result in disruptive rasping noises at best and oxygen deprivation at most. The body’s natural defenses kick in and wake people to engage the muscles and free the airways, disrupting sleep. Before, only intrusive and noisy CPAP mask therapy was available to adequately treat this, but Montgomery Dental Sleep Medicine is promoting a new dental appliance that promises comfort, effectiveness and a great night’s sleep.
The oral appliances (http://montgomerydentalsleepmedicine.com/oral-appliance-therapy-2/) work by keeping the mouth and throat openings dilated so that even when muscles relax, air flow is still regulated. The mouthpieces do not require an oxygen pump like the CPAP masks and so is more a convenient, quieter way to treat sleep apnea.
Montgomery Dental Sleep Medicine (http://montgomerydentalsleepmedicine.com) is based in Cincinnati, Ohio, and offers free consultations to anyone from those with diagnosed sleep apnea to those who fear they may suffer from it. They are regionally and nationally recognized for giving the most effective treatments possible, which often only requires the mouthpiece, or a combination of mouthpiece and CPAP mask.
A spokesperson for Montgomery Dental Sleep Medicine explained, “The oral appliances that have been developed have proven hugely effective for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea, offering the maximum comfort and effectiveness for individuals to get a good night’s rest while optimally oxygenating their bodies as they sleep, all without the need for intrusive devices. We offer free consultations, so there’s no need for anyone suffering from sleep disruption not to explore the possibility of getting better sleep. Oral appliances are not always a complete solution, but always offer increased comfort no matter the result of the consultation.”
