You turn off all electronics an hour before bed, lay down at 8 PM, and avoid caffeine entirely, but you still wake up every morning feeling like you haven’t slept at all. Even worse, your partner says you snore loudly every single night, meaning they feel tired all the time, too! If any of this sounds familiar, then you may have sleep apnea, a serious disorder that can rob you of your rest and even your health if left untreated. At Premier Dental, Dr. Adam and Dr. Giuliana are able to help patients overcome both of these problems using custom-made oral appliances for snoring and sleep apnea therapy in Vero Beach, ensuring that when they wake up, they have all the energy they need to take on the day.
Snoring and sleep apnea are both caused by the same basic problem: the airway becoming obstructed while a person sleeps, most often due to their tongue and soft palate relaxing and falling towards the back of the throat. Our sleep appliances work by fitting comfortably over the teeth and slightly shifting the lower jaw forward. The result? The airway stays open the entire night, enabling a patient to get the deep, restful sleep they need to feel awake and focused the next day.
