Sleep Apnea Treatment in

Sleep apnea is a serious disorder which causes pauses in breathing while you sleep. It is often recognized by a sudden, loud snore. At Creating Smiles, we offer oral appliances to treat your sleep apnea and give you the rest you need.

Sleep Apnea Treatment in Lutz

Sleep apnea is most common in men, but it can affect anyone of any age or gender. The condition is characterized by an abnormally loud snoring sound and an inability to feel rested, even after a full night's sleep. This sleeping disorder is caused by relaxation of the muscles in the throat. This partially closes the windpipe and causes the tissues to vibrate as air passes through them, making a loud snoring sound.

The pauses in breathing associated with sleep apnea range from a few seconds to potentially longer. Your body may then slightly wake itself up to reposition or activate the throat muscles. This prevents you from reaching a deep level of sleep even if you don’t realize how many times you’ve woken up during the night.

At Creating Smiles, we offer oral appliances to combat sleep apnea. Our oral appliances are worn through the night while you sleep, and are comfortable enough to allow you to breathe normally. They will help position your jaw in a way that promotes an open airway and prevents those dangerous pauses in breathing.

Hands down, the best dental office I’ve ever been to. Everyone is happy and helpful. No dental shaming. Excellent knowledge and communication-they took pictures of my teeth and showed me my x-rays so I could see and understand everything that was going on. This is an example of how all healthcare should be.
