Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Sleep Apnea may be affecting your quality of life.

CPAP is a breathing machine which is the gold standard in treating sleep apnea. However, less than 50% of the population will wear their CPAP machine on a regular basis. Others who do use their CPAP are inconvenienced in taking the machine with them on a vacation or business trip.

Dental appliances are proven to reduce or alleviate nighttime snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) for those patients with mild to moderate sleep apnea and those patients with severe sleep apnea who can’t or won’t wear their CPAP machine. They are much more comfortable and convenient than CPAP machines!

Dentist, Bruce Kanehl of Jacksonville, Florida has been making these for his patients for over 20 years. Before having throat surgery or sleeping with a CPAP breathing machine, speak with Dr. Kanehl about trying a sleep apnea oral appliance.

Are you at Risk for Sleep Apnea?

Clinical studies have shown a link between high blood pressure, stroke, Type 2 diabetes and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Sleep Apnea is a common condition in which the upper airway repeatedly collapses during sleep, causing a decreased airflow that stresses the heart and the body during the night. If untreated, this condition has been associated with development of various heart disorders including stroke, high blood pressure and abnormal heart rhythms. For those with Type 2 diabetes, if untreated, this condition may worsen glucose control.
