Coping with Sleep Apnea

September 13, 2016 4:29 pm Published by

Millions of Americans suffer from sleep apnea, yet only a small portion of them have been properly diagnosed. Dental Solutions of Avon wants to change that. You don’t have to continually suffer through restless nights that make you drowsy during the day. There is a solution.

Understanding Sleep Apnea

While sleeping, everyone’s mouth and jaw muscles relax, but for those who suffer from sleep apnea, those muscles become too relaxed. The overly relaxed muscles actually collapse and block the airway. This makes it extremely difficult to breathe, and interrupts your sleep cycle. For someone suffering with sleep apnea, a peaceful night’s sleep seems impossible. 

Dangers of Sleep Apnea

Most people think that restless nights and loud snoring are the main annoyances that sleep apnea causes, and while it does cause those problems, it’s also been linked to health issues. Sleep apnea can increase your risk of stroke, heart disease, diabetes and depression. It’s a problem that should be addressed, especially because there are simple treatment solutions.


While severe sleep apnea requires a CPAP machine, there are less annoying and obtrusive options for those who suffer from mild to moderate sleep apnea. At Indy Dental Solutions, your comfort is important. The staff understand the hassle and health risks that come from sleep apnea, and are passionate about creating a treatment that works. They offer custom sleep apnea mouth appliances that help open your airway, so that you can finally breathe normally during the night. Not every patient is the same, what helps one person isn’t always effective for another. That’s why Indy Dental Solutions offers multiple mouth appliance options.

If you suffer from sleep apnea, contact Indy Dental Solutions to learn more about their sleep apnea treatments, and take the first step towards a peaceful night’s sleep.
