Stop Snoring by Treating Sleep Apnea in Frankfort, KY
We let them know that probably a sleep deficiency is one of the greatest undiagnosed medical problems in the United States. People don't even know that until it reaches a point where somebody has to tell them, or they can't stay awake during the day and they know something serious is ... now, there are very much different degrees of sleep apnea. Some of them we can treat very simply with an oral appliance, and we can do much with that.
But also, there's neurological problems involved, and you have to differentiate, and even though we may not do that part of it, we have to be cognizant enough to know when we need any additional help, or to refer to that place first and then combine our treatments together. It is not just a one-stop deal at all, and it has to be looked into pretty seriously.
We're not in the business of selling appliances, we're in the business of getting the correct diagnosis and see it if there's one way, two ways, or a combination of ways to do it.

This is custom-made to fit your teeth. It will help you adjust to sleeping with something similar to an athletic mouthguard in your mouth. It works by pulling your lower jaw forward slightly. In doing so, you are able to breathe naturally, which helps you get the deep, healthy sleep you need and deserve.
Many people with this sleep disorder are given CPAP machines as their first attempt at treatment. This involves wearing a mask that pushes air into your airways to keep them open. Unfortunately, around half the people given a CPAP stop using it. Some people don’t like wearing a mask. Others don’t like the feeling of the air pressure, and some are bothered by the sound the machine makes.
Whether you have been recently diagnosed or you are having difficulty using your CPAP, contact us to find out how an oral appliance could help you.

Snoring may be the most noticeable symptom of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), but it may distract from bigger concerns. Daytime sleepiness is often a sign of sleep deprivation. People with OSA can stop breathing dozens or even hundreds of times every night. In addition to preventing deep sleep, this can raise your risk of high blood pressure, heart attacks, and strokes.
