Have a sound sleep without sleeping disturbance

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder distinguished by repeated interruptions in breathing throughout the sleep. The interruption is called apnea which is caused by the soft tissue collapse in the airway that prevents oxygen from reaching the lungs. As sleep apnea disturbs the entire sleep cycle, it will directly impact on the health, mental performance, energy. Sleep apnea becomes fatal if left untreated.


The common symptoms of sleep apnea

  • Snoring is the prime symptoms associated with choking or gasping sounds
  • Night sweats
  • Tiredness
  • Depression
  • Morning headaches
  • Daytime sleepiness
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Frequent urination at night
  • Loss of energy


Types of sleep apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA): It is the most common sleep apnea type. In OSA, air flow is stopped into the lungs due to a blockage in the upper airway i.e. in the throat or nose.

Central apnea: It is a less common type. In this case, though the airway is open, air flow is stopped into the lung because no effort was made to breathe. As the signal between the brain and the body is affected, the breathing stops. People with CSA will not often snore, so the condition is unnoticed.

Mixed apnea: This is a mixture of both obstructive sleep apnea and central apnea conditions.

When the body does not receive adequate oxygen, it leads to serious health complications such as stroke, high blood pressure, depression, heart disease, Diabetes & pre-diabetes.

Nocturnal polysomnography: It is a sleep study used to diagnose sleep disorders. Polysomnography records brain waves, oxygen levels in the blood, breathing and heart rate. Even leg and eye movements are watched during the test.


Treatments for sleep apnea

DNA Appliance: It is an alternative to the conventional fixed orthodontic appliance. This removable appliance is worn both by adults and children at the day and night time. The DNA appliance is natural, pain-free, helps in correcting and aligning the teeth. It improves the upper airway with no surgery, drugs.

nCPAP: The collapsed airway is expanded by pumping air into the nose with Nasal continuous positive airway pumps. It is simple and effective in curing sleep disorders.

Make your teeth more beautiful and comfortable with Invisalign

In the modern medical world, everything has got a better alternative. In case of dentistry, traditional braces are completely ruled out by Invisalign/clear braces. The wearing style of Invisalign does not showcase that a person wears such an item. It perfectly matches the originality. In the Invisalign, a series of strong, clear aligner trays are used over the teeth. These trays are customized using a computer-aided design and until the bite is corrected the trays are modified. Though both traditional and Invisalign braces bring out the same functionality for a variety of dental issues such as overbite, crowding, spacing, Invisalign covers many advantages over traditional metal braces.

Generally, traditional braces take more time to straighten the teeth whereas Invisalign clear braces take up to 18 months for teeth straightening without hurting gums, cheeks, and muscles.

Refrain From Migraine And Snoring - TMJ Treatment

The Temporomandibular Joint connects the jaw to the skull. When this joint is damaged or injured, it will lead to pain and uneasiness. This TMJ joint only helps to chew, yawn, talk, and move the jaw up and down. The temporomandibular joint distortion results in wrong breathing and inconsistent chewing. It happens because the upper and lower teeth do not occlude normally. There will be a shift in the mandibular position and the body is propelled to find a solution to this issue. The altered mandible articulates with the skull in many ways leading to a TMJ disorder. As important nerves undergo prolonged stimulation in this region, it leads to many discomforts.

A highly sophisticated tracking device helps to determine the actual position of the mandible. To fill out the space between the teeth, a lower splint is constructed.

Phase II: After six months, the splint is removed and with the help of orthodontic therapy space is closed permanently.
