Sleep Apnea Treatment in Bonita Springs

Pelican Landing Dental provides sleep apnea treatment in Bonita Springs to restore oral health and help patients return to restful sleep. We can treat mild and moderate obstructive sleep apnea.

Obstructive sleep apnea is very common in adults and is usually caused by an over-relaxation of the throat muscles during sleep. This causes the airways to constrict or collapse, preventing the lungs from absorbing enough oxygen.

Symptoms of sleep apnea can include

  • Waking in the night and feeling breathless
  • Gasping or choking during sleep
  • Abnormal dry mouth after waking
  • Reduced concentration and awareness during the day
  • Headaches in the morning
  • Snoring
  • Irritability
  • Feeling as if you didn’t sleep at all

Sleep Apnea Appliances in Bonita Springs

Dental treatment is an effective solution for mild to moderate cases of sleep apnea. These cases are measured as 29 breathing stoppages per hour. The dental appliances for sleep apnea are reported by most patients to be comfortable to wear for long periods and much more comfortable than a CPAP, thus making treatment more consistent and successful.

At Pelican Landing Dental, we create custom-made dental appliances that fit your oral structures and work to gently hold the lower jaw in a forward position to open your airway and allow optimal oxygen intake. This prevents the throat muscles from collapsing and keeps the airway open during sleep.

Dental treatment for sleep apnea can help in a variety of ways.

  • Effective for mild to moderate sleep apnea cases
  • Custom mouthguard appliances
  • Non-invasive and more comfortable than a CPAP machine
