Roughly five percent of Americans have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). In terms of a disorder, sleep apnea is a widespread disorder that really was not taken very seriously physicians until the 1980s. A person with sleep apnea stops breathing, often for 10 seconds or more, which causes the person to wake from deep sleep. This process repeats itself throughout the night as often as 20-30 times a hour. The effects are lasting and begin with sleep deprivation, forgetfulness, fatigue but it can progress into larger issues like heart disease, stroke and even premature death.
The SomnoMed device is an orthodontic appliance worn during sleep that prevents the airway from collapsing. The device comfortably repositions the jaw to prevent the airway restriction. This means a night of uninterrupted breathing, which ultimately means a night a better sleep.
In the past sleep apnea has traditionally been treated with a CPAP machine, which requires the sleep apnea sufferer to wear a mask to attached to a bulky machine while sleeping. As you can imagine wearing a breathing mask to bed every night might be uncomfortable and limit sleep. SonoMed is a dental appliance similar to a night guard or a retainer. It’s much smaller and much more comfortable for sleeping.
At the appointment Dr. Borowski will take impressions of your mouth and determine where your reposition your jaw to prevent your airway from collapsing. Then the impressions and information are sent to the SonoMed lab where it will be custom made for your mouth.
Treatment for OSA in the past has traditionally been CPAP machines that cost thousands of dollars and are complicated to use. The SomnoMed device is much smaller, less costly, makes no noise and successfully treats sleep apnea.
