Your Iowa Dentist Specializing in Sleep Apnea Treatments
Sleep apnea is a condition that includes one or more pauses in breathing, or shallow breathing, during sleep. It often leads to snoring, poor sleep quality, and daytime sleepiness.
Sleep apnea most commonly occurs as the airway becomes blocked during sleep, generally from the tongue rolling back, misalignment of the jaws, or the collapse of soft tissues in the throat. Iowa Dental Arts provides custom-made dental appliances, including Silent Nite®, to reposition the tongue and lower jaw to maintain an open airway during sleep.
Sleep apnea may cause multiple problems and increase your risk for many conditions, including:
- High blood pressure
- Excessive daytime sleepiness
- Heart disease
- Memory loss
