SLEEP APNEA OVERVIEW
Sleep apnea occurs when your breathing is disrupted during sleep. Men, overweight people, and people over 40 are at greater risk for sleep apnea. Untreated sleep apnea can cause hypertension, stroke, or heart failure.
Sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder that occurs when a person’s breathing is interrupted during sleep. People with untreated sleep apnea stop breathing repeatedly during their sleep, sometimes hundreds of times. This means the brain — and the rest of the body — may not get enough oxygen.
Dental devices can be made that help keep the airway open during sleep. Such devices can be specifically designed by dentists with special expertise in treating sleep apnea. Dr. Mandy Grimshaw is committed to saving lives by providing treatment for sleep apnea with custom oral appliances. Dr. Grimshaw uses a recent breakthrough in oral appliances, the MicrO2™, to provide comfortable treatment for sleep apnea with consistently positive results.
