Are you Suffering from Placerville Sleep Apnea?

Is your loud snoring keeping everyone in your household awake at night? Snoring may be a sign of obstructive sleep apnea, a serious, potentially life-threatening condition, which requires immediate treatment. At the office of Dr. Carl M. Hillendahl, we provide leading-edge oral appliance therapy to treat the symptoms of Placerville sleep apnea, helping you and those you love get a better night’s rest.

Placerville Sleep Apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when the muscles at the back of your throat collapse while you sleep, causing a blockage of airflow. To accurately diagnose sleep apnea, your doctor will need to perform a sleep study, observing your symptoms while you are at rest. In addition to heavy snoring, waking up abruptly, ceasing to breathe and gasping for breath may indicate sleep apnea. Since sleep apnea takes a toll on your normal sleep cycle, you may experience daytime symptoms such as fatigue, headaches and difficulty concentrating. Your doctor may recommend treating sleep apnea with a CPAP machine, which supplies continuous pressure through a mask worn over your nose, to keep your airways open. For mild to moderate cases of obstructive sleep apnea, an oral appliance can deliver effective treatment as well. A Placerville sleep apnea oral appliance is worn over your top and bottom teeth, like a retainer, keeping your jaw in a slightly forward position to allow air to easily pass through. The device is portable, comfortable and easy to clean. We custom design your oral appliance for a precise fit, and our team of professionals will instruct you on how to properly utilize and care for your appliance.

At the office of Dr. Carl M. Hillendahl, we are committed to improving your oral and overall health. If you are suffering from Placerville sleep apnea, oral appliance therapy may help you breathe easier at night. To learn more about sleep apnea, or to get fitted for your customized oral appliance, call us today.
