Sleep apnea is a serious and potentially life-threatening condition that occurs when the soft tissues and muscles in the back of the throat relax, restricting the airway. The disorder, which occurs while asleep, can cause the person to stop breathing for brief periods of time throughout the night. Those affected by Red Bank sleep apnea may exhibit symptoms of loud or frequent snoring, restless sleep, uncontrollable breathing cessation, abrupt awakenings, morning headaches, excessive daytime drowsiness or fatigue, irritability, as well as difficulty concentrating or staying alert behind the wheel.
Luckily, at the office of Dr. Cyril Beard, we offer state-of-the-art oral appliances for the treatment of mild to moderate Red Bank sleep apnea. Our oral appliances for treatment of sleep apnea fit similar to an orthodontic retainer while they work to keep the soft tissues in your throat from obstructing your airway. You can rest assured that your treatment is in the best of hands. Our dentist will guide you on how to properly wear and maintain your appliance so that you can enjoy a better night’s sleep. We usually recommend an annual assessment to inspect the fit of the appliance and make sure it’s functioning at its best;
