Sleep apnea is a potentially dangerous condition that causes temporary pauses in breathing as you sleep. This is not only affects your immediate health, often causing grogginess and headaches, but increases your risk for high blood pressure, obesity, and diabetes. While sleep apnea needs to be diagnosed by your doctor, our dentists are proud to offer effective solutions for sleep apnea in Chicago, Illinois.
Our premier treatment for sleep apnea is custom-made night guards. Designed to fit snugly over your teeth, our night guards gently reposition your lower jaw and push it slightly forward. This ensures your airway remains unobstructed, allowing air to flow freely as you sleep. This corrects one of the main causes of sleep apnea: the collapse of the soft tissues in your throat continuously throughout the night. We work hard to make sure our night guards fit comfortably and are easy to sleep in.
If you are experiencing headaches, morning grogginess, and a constant sore throat, it may be time to visit Dr. Wilson, Dr. Wegmann, and Dr. Choo to learn more about sleep apnea and how it can be treated. We look forward to answering your questions and scheduling a time for you to come and visit with our team.
