Sleep apnea is a chronic sleep disorder characterized by interruptions and pauses in breathing while asleep. These pauses may occur multiple times each night, and individuals suffering from this condition may actually stop breathing for brief periods. OSA is caused by obstructions in the airway, such as when the tongue rolls back in the throat or when the soft tissues collapse in the airway. Sleep apnea contributes to several serious medical conditions, including heart disease, high blood pressure and liver problems.
Dr. Marino provides oral appliance therapy to help treat OSA so that you can enjoy better health and get the rest you need. The custom oral appliance provided by our dentist fits over your teeth and works to keep your airway open, preventing the blockages that cause pauses in breathing and disrupt your rest.
