“I have a lousy sleep, and my wife says I snore. Apparently, I hold my breath, and gasp for air in my sleep - IF I can sleep... I know I clench and grind my teeth at night, which is probably why I wake up with headaches in the morning.
I'm always tired, constantly in pain, and have no energy anymore. I clearly have hypertension and our family doctor thinks I have sleep apnea. She prescribed sleeping pills, but I don't want to take them anymore. They make me feel hugely depressed.
I was referred to a sleep clinic where they recommended a CPAP machine. I've tried that, but sleeping with a tube in your face, doesn't feel like "sleeping" at all.
I need options because I cannot live like this. My sleep doc said I should try a dental sleep appliance. Now I'm looking for a dentist who provides custom sleep apnea / snoring devices. Then I found Dentalife."
Sleep that does not allow you to breathe in a relaxed and full way can cause the release of stress hormones that can have far reaching health consequences. Weight gain, aging, fatigue, heart attacks and strokes are all at higher risk with sleep disturbance issues. A dental sleep appliance may be what you need to keep you healthier and live longer.
Dentalife provides effective sleep apnea or snoring appliances. We recommend the MicrO2 and Somnodent brands because of flexibility, customized fit, and durability.
To help you breathe better while you sleep, we can design a oral appliance to put over your teeth to keep your airways open during the night. It helps to generate more space in the back of your throat.
This new-found space in the back of your throat helps to reduce the collapsing and obstruction of your throat tissue. This is what causes snoring, reduced airflow and sleep apnea.
Comfortable and effective
The appliance is designed with an adjustable lower jaw advancement which enhances the effectiveness and can make the dental sleep appliance more effective and comfortable.
