Greenville, NC Sleep Therapy
Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Persistent or habitual snoring is a common issue, impacting as many as 40% of women and 57% of men according to the Sleep Foundation. Here at Greenville Dental Sleep Center, we want to help men and women in Greenville, NC, combat their disruptive snoring and help them sleep better. We also know that snoring is a common sign of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), a potentially dangerous sleep disorder that causes tissue to collapse in the back of the throat, leading to pauses in breathing throughout the night. If left untreated, OSA can increase your risk for diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.
Dental Care and Oral Appliance Therapy
Here at Greenville Dental Sleep Center, we want to offer our patients a new approach to getting better quality sleep. While continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy is a common way to treat OSA and sleep disordered-breathing, it isn’t the only way. Alternatively, our dental team provides a custom-fitted dental device that fits over your teeth like a mouth guard. It’s only worn while you’re asleep but it helps to reposition the jaws in such a way to prevent the tissue in the back of the throat from collapsing, helping you get better and more restorative sleep.
