Snoring & Sleep Apnea

Snoring Is No Joke!

Snoring can be a precursor to Obstructive Sleep Apnea or OSA. It can disrupt marriages and cause sleepless nights for bed partners. In its own right, snoring has been linked to Heart Disease and Type II Diabetes. Most people with Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) snore loudly and frequently, with periods of silence when airflow is reduced or blocked.

What Is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a sleep-related breathing disorder that involves a decrease or complete halt in airflow despite an ongoing effort to breathe. It occurs when the muscles relax during sleep, causing soft tissue in the back of the throat to collapse and block the upper airway. This leads to partial reductions (hypopneas) and complete pauses (apneas) in breathing that last at least 10-30 seconds. Some may persist for one minute or longer during sleep. This can lead to abrupt reductions in blood oxygen saturation, with oxygen levels falling as much as 40 percent or more in severe cases.

What Are Sleep Oral Appliances?

A sleep oral appliance is an effective treatment option for people with mild to moderate OSA who are looking for an alternative to CPAP or cannot tolerate CPAP therapy. Oral appliances look much like sports mouth guards, and they help maintain an open and unobstructed airway by repositioning or stabilizing the lower jaw, tongue, soft palate or uvula. Some are designed specifically for snoring, and others are intended to treat both snoring and sleep apnea. At Northtown Dental, Dr. Catherine Tallerico can help you determine if an oral appliance is right for you.

This clinic was recommended by a friend when I just moved to the area. Since then, my family and I have been regular clients. The service is fantastic. The staff is professional and friendly. We never had any problems. Sometimes a tooth needs an adjustment after a filling, but it takes just a few minutes. On a few occasions, I just walked in without scheduling an appointment, and Dr. Tallerico was kind enough to fix the issue on the spot.
