Sleep Apnea

Sleep Apnea Treatment at Hershey Family Dentistry

Sleep apnea is a common but serious sleep disorder characterized by repeated interruptions in breathing during sleep. These pauses can last from a few seconds to minutes and can occur 30 times or more an hour. The most common type is obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), where the throat muscles intermittently relax and block the airway during sleep.

At Hershey Family Dentistry, we understand the impact that sleep apnea can have on your overall health and quality of life. Our team is dedicated to providing effective treatment options to help you manage this condition. One of the most common and effective treatments for sleep apnea is the use of oral appliance therapy.

If you suspect that you or a loved one may have sleep apnea, the first step is to schedule a consultation with our team at Hershey Family Dentistry. During your visit, we will discuss your symptoms, conduct a thorough examination, and if necessary, refer you to a sleep specialist for further evaluation.

If you are diagnosed with sleep apnea and oral appliance therapy is deemed appropriate, we will take impressions of your teeth to create a custom-fitted appliance. We will also provide you with instructions on how to use and care for your device, as well as schedule follow-up appointments to ensure its effectiveness and your comfort.

Sleep apnea is a condition that should not be taken lightly, but with the right treatment, you can manage it effectively and improve your quality of life. At Hershey Family Dentistry, we are committed to providing our patients with the best possible care for sleep apnea and other dental health needs. If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment, please contact us today.
