What is Sleep Apnea?

The most common type of sleep apnea is called obstructive sleep apnea, which occurs when the muscles that support your throat, like your tongue, relax as you sleep, blocking your airway and reducing oxygen flow throughout the night. While the most common sign of this is chronic, loud snoring and waking while gasping for air, there are also some other symptoms you can look out for, including:

  • Difficulty concentrating throughout the day
  • Decreased libido
  • Excessive drowsiness and fatigue
  • Morning headaches
  • High blood pressure
  • Depression and mood changes

How Do We Treat Sleep Apnea?

Dr. Salava utilizes customized sleep apnea appliances to help expand your airway to encourage healthy oxygen flow as you sleep throughout the night. These appliances are made from durable acrylic and are customized for your specific oral structure. If you aren’t yet diagnosed with sleep apnea, we offer at-home sleep testing to help you identify whether your symptoms are a result of this condition.
