Sleep Better & Experience Improved Health With a Sleep Mouthguard

Groth Dental not only provides great general dental care, we can also successfully treat your sleep disorder. We’ll make a custom mouthguard that will rest comfortably in your mouth while you sleep, exerting gentle pressure on your lower jaw to keep your airway open. Many people find a mouthguard preferable to using a CPAP machine, another type of sleep apnea treatment.

A mouthguard will:

  • Help you breathe easier, rest better, and feel better
  • Improve your long-term health by lessening the risk of harmful conditions associated with obstructive sleep apnea
  • Stop air from passing across the soft tissues in the back of your throat, so you’ll snore less or not at all
  • Be more convenient to use than a CPAP, with no need for batteries or electricity
  • Require no mask or hose that can distract you or your bed partner

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the most common type of sleep apnea. It occurs when the tongue and other tissues in the back of your throat relax and block your airway during sleep. OSA can cause you immediate problems with grogginess and irritability. It has also been linked to long-term problems related to strokes, heart attacks, high blood pressure, diabetes, and depression.

If you think you are suffering from sleep apnea in Bingham Farms, call Groth Dental today: 248-885-8247. You can also schedule online. Dr. Groth will screen you and recommend effective treatment if needed. Better sleep is on the horizon!

Common Questions About Sleep Apnea

What is sleep apnea?

Sleep apnea is a condition caused when your airway becomes obstructed while you sleep. This usually occurs when your tongue or other soft tissue in your mouth temporarily relaxes. This causes frequent interruptions in your breathing that make it nearly impossible for you – and often your bed partner – to get a good night’s rest.

Why is sleep apnea bad?

Sleep apnea not only disrupts your sleep, but it has also been linked to several major health conditions. These include high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, and depression. Getting treatment early on can help you avoid these health issues, enjoy a better quality of life, and even potentially help you live longer.

How is sleep apnea treated?

The key to treating obstructive sleep apnea is keeping your airway open while you sleep. Two commonly prescribed ways of doing so are a CPAP machine and a mouthguard. With the CPAP, you inhale a stream of pressurized air through a mask. The mouthguard keeps your airway clear by simply moving your jaw slightly forward.
