Patients seeking sleep apnea treatment in Miami, Oklahoma, can find the help they need at Family Dental Associates. Our dentist can help you sleep and breathe easier using advanced SomnoMed appliances.
Obstructive sleep apnea is the result of something blocking your airway. This could be your tongue rolling into the back of your throat or collapsed tissue in your airway. The common symptoms of this condition include:
- Extreme daytime drowsiness
- Irritable and changed personalities
- Dry or sore throat upon waking
- Frequent headaches in the morning
While these symptoms are inconvenient to live with, they are not the only reason that you should treat your sleep apnea. The long-term effects of untreated sleep apnea include severe health conditions including heart disease, high blood pressure and liver problems.
Fortunately, Dr. Mark Folks and Dr. Matthew Keim can use SomnoMed appliances to help treat your sleep apnea. Here are some of the appliances that are designed by SomnoMed.
