The CPAP has long been the gold standard for treating sleep apnea. However, compliance with CPAP treatment is very low. Now there is a new FDA approved treatment called “Oral Appliance Therapy.”
Snoring occurs when the tongue and soft tissue of the throat fall back into the throat and the airway becomes narrow. As the air passes over the relaxed tissue, it will cause it to vibrate. This vibration makes a sound…Snoring.
Sleep apnea is a serious condition that occurs when the soft tissue of the throat falls back and obstructs or blocks the airway. After a few seconds the brain sends a signal to your body to wake up and regain an open airway. This severely disrupts your sleep.

The Facts On Snoring and Sleep Apnea
Snoring is definitely nothing to yawn at and it is the most common symptom of sleep apnea. Estimates are that about 90 million people suffer from snoring activity during sleep. It’s estimated that about half of these suffer with Obstructive Sleep Apnea or OSA.
Not everybody that snores has sleep apnea but loud and frequent snoring is a major sign of OSA. People who have obstructive sleep apnea can stop breathing several times a night for just a few seconds up to a minute. These pauses in breathing keep the body from getting the rest it needs in order to revitalize and heal itself. Both snoring and sleep apnea can be caused or made worse by obesity, large tongue and tonsils, aging and head and neck shape.
If you suspect you have sleep apnea, the first thing to do is get a sleep study done to confirm. There are a couple of ways to do this. One is to go to a sleep center and be tested. The other is an in home sleep study that is taken then read by a sleep doctor for diagnosis. If you need help with this process, then call our office at 410-531-5639 we will be glad to assist you.
