What are the symptoms of Sleep Apnea ? Gasping for air due to stoppage of breathing …..
Dr. Rod Willey of the Illinois Institute of Dental Sleep Medicine talks about what sleep apnea is as well as the signs and symptoms of sleep apnea. Dr. Rod Willey provides treatment for snoring and sleep apnea with oral appliance therapy, a comfortable alternative to CPAP. Oral Appliance Therapy has proven to be a very viable and scientifically based treatment option for Obstructive Sleep Apnea. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine issued a statement in the 2006 journal “SLEEP” that Oral Appliance Therapy was approved as the first line of treatment for those suffering from mild to moderate Obstructive Sleep Apnea and is proving to be effective for severe cases as well. The purpose of the oral appliance is to hold the jaw in a position that allows the airway to remain as open and firm as possible during sleep. Oral appliances are similar to athletic mouth guards, but less bulky and completely non-invasive. Interested in a comfortable alternative to CPAP?
