Sleep Apnea Treatments We Offer

Dr. Cara Schantz and our team are proud to offer custom oral appliance therapy, an effective treatment alternative for sleep apnea sufferers who cannot tolerate CPAP machines. These oral appliances are designed to open your airway by gently repositioning your jaw or tongue during sleep.

Symptoms of Sleep Apnea

Recognizing the symptoms of sleep apnea is the first step toward getting the treatment you need. Here are some signs to watch out for:

  • Chronic snoring
  • Pauses in breathing while asleep
  • Gasping for air during sleep
  • Excessive daytime sleepiness
  • Morning headaches
  • Difficulty concentrating

If these symptoms sound all too familiar, it may be time to consider a screening

The Dangers of Sleep Apnea

It’s important to realize that sleep apnea is more than just having your sleep interrupted. There are a lot of associated risks with sleep apnea and sleep deprivation. With sleep apnea, you’re not just waking up multiple times a night; you completely stop breathing! This deprives your brain and body of oxygen. Here are more risks to consider:

  • Sleep deprivation can cause excessive exhaustion during the day, making it difficult to concentrate and accomplish tasks.
  • Sleep deprivation can also cause mood swings and irritability, which can affect relationships and jobs.
  • Sleep apnea is connected to increased risks of developing other health issues, like type 2 diabetes, heart attacks, strokes, and increased blood pressure.

What to Expect During a Sleep Apnea Screening

When you come to CNS Dental for a sleep apnea screening, here’s what you can expect:

  1. Consultation: You’ll come into the office for a detailed discussion with Dr. Schantz about your symptoms and health history.
  2. Examination: Dr. Schantz will perform a thorough examination of your throat, mouth, and airway.
  3. Options: You’ll be given information on sleep study options to accurately diagnose your condition.

We aim to make the screening process as seamless and stress-free as possible.

Does Sleep Apnea Ever Go Away?

Sleep apnea is a chronic condition that typically does not resolve on its own without treatment. Continuous management and lifestyle changes can significantly alleviate symptoms and reduce associated risks. Meet with Dr. Schantz to find the best solution to suit your needs and help you get back to restful nights.
