Do you suffer from chronic snoring and have difficulty getting a good night’s sleep? If so, you may have sleep apnea. Here at Costa Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we are committed to helping patients in Leesburg, VA find relief from this serious condition. Let’s take a closer look at what sleep apnea is and how it can be treated.

What is Sleep Apnea?

The most common type of sleep apnea is obstructive sleep apnea. It causes a blockage in your breathing because your throat tissue relaxes during sleep. The second, less common type of sleep apnea is central sleep apnea. Central sleep apnea occurs when your brain is unable to signal normal breathing. If you are living with sleep apnea, you may experience the following signs and symptoms:

  • Chronic snoring
  • Regular morning headaches and migraines
  • Abruptly waking up to the feeling of gasping or choking
  • Sore throat
  • Dry mouth
  • Daytime fatigue
  • Mood swings
  • Forgetfulness

A Custom & Comfortable Solution to Sleep Apnea

We are pleased to offer a custom and comfortable solution for patients with sleep apnea. It is effective, non-invasive and can help you live the productive, fulfilling life you deserve. The solution is an oral appliance that is far more comfortable than a CPAP machine. If you wear it while you sleep, it will shift the position of your jaw and ensure you breathe properly.
