Snoring and Sleep Apnea Treatment in Toronto (Yorkville) and Scarborough
Sleep apnea and snoring are common sleep disorders that can have a significant impact on a person’s quality of life.
At Liberty Square Dental Group, our Toronto and Scarborough dental offices can help patients through a treatment called oral appliance therapy.
What is sleep apnea?
Sleep apnea is a condition characterized by interruptions in breathing during sleep. It occurs when the airway becomes partially or completely blocked, leading to a reduction or cessation of airflow.
Snoring, on the other hand, is a common symptom of sleep apnea but can also occur without it. It is caused by the vibration of soft tissues in the airway during sleep, resulting in the characteristic sound.
Sleep apnea treatment at our dental offices
Liberty Square Dental Group offers a non-surgical treatment option for sleep apnea and snoring using oral appliances. These oral appliances are custom-made devices that are worn during sleep. They are designed to reposition the jaw and tongue forward, which helps to keep the airway open and reduce or eliminate snoring and sleep apnea episodes.
It’s important to note that oral appliance therapy is generally recommended for individuals with mild to moderate sleep apnea or for those who cannot tolerate CPAP therapy, which is another common treatment for sleep apnea.
