Sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder which should be treated immediately. At Avid Dental Lindenhurst, we can help you have a better night’s sleep with the Optima, an oral appliance that helps alleviate mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea.
The O2Vent Optima is a removable device, much like a mouth guard, that is custom fitted for your mouth. This is done by taking a digital scan of your teeth, which is sent to Oventus to fabricate your custom made Optima. The Optima is shaped specifically to generate better airflow through special air channels. Plus, the lower jaw adjustment helps clear tongue obstruction.
Sleep apnea can result in many symptoms, but some of the most common include:
Grinding and quenching your teeth
Inability to sleep through the night
Waking up with sore throat or dry mouth
The lower jaw is prevented from falling backward, opening the airway.
An air channel in the front provides you with an easier way of breathing if you have difficulties breathing through your nose.
The air you breathe follows a path around the device, letting it flow to the back of your airway.
If you suspect you have sleep apnea, do not wait for treatment. Avid Dental Lindenhurst and Sleep Watchers have partnered up to give the best sleep solutions, please click this link below to sleep well again.Make an Appointment with Sleep Watchers
