sleep apnea treatment

Brentwood and Walnut Creek area patients who have experienced problems getting a restful night’s sleep may be dealing with obstructive sleep apnea. Treatment for sleep apnea is often required to allow the body to get the restorative sleep necessary to feel great every day. Dr. Jamil Alkhoury and the staff of Brentwood Family Dental offer oral appliance therapy as an option for treatment.

What is obstructive sleep apnea?

This sleep breathing disorder is more common than patients realize. Dr. Jamil Alkhoury and his staff have worked with patients who have been diagnosed with this condition. The most common symptoms of this condition are:

  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Poor memory
  • Daytime fatigue
  • Awakening many times at night
  • Dry mouth in the morning
  • Consistent headaches and migraines
  • Snoring

The cause of obstructive sleep apnea is a blockage in the airway, which can be as simple as the tongue falling back into the throat or excess tissue on the neck. Patients who believe they have this disorder work with their family physician to undergo a sleep study to obtain a proper diagnosis. Obstructive sleep apnea is often addressed with a CPAP machine. However, many patients do not comply with CPAP treatment because it is uncomfortable, noisy, and difficult to travel with.

Oral appliance therapy

Instead of CPAP, patients can use a special-made oral appliance worn at night to open the airway.
