The symptoms of Sleep apnea are commonly known; snoring, exhaustion, irritability and depression. OSA (Obstructive Sleep Apnea ) stems from poor or blocked airflow.
But most people do not know that Dentists offer a gentle, non-invasive approach to diagnosing and treating sleep apnea. Actually, they provide the number 1 accepted treatment for OSA for those who reject the CPA (continue positive airway pressure.)
Because of as many as 83% of CPA Continuous Positive Airway Pressure users reject the treatment, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine has designated dental sleep oral appliances as the No. 1 nonsurgical alternative for the CPAP intolerant.
If you have been diagnosed with OSA, Dr. Erramouspe treats snoring and mild to moderate forms of sleep apnea.
