sleep apnea solutions AnchorageIf you suffer from sleep breathing disorder (SBD), you are likely familiar with the many unpleasant symptoms that come with this condition, including loud, disruptive snoring and fatigue even after a full night of sleep. Although troublesome on their own, these symptoms are can also be signs of sleep apnea, which can lead to other serious health conditions. ProSomnus Sleep Devices at Turnagain Dental can help treat sleep apnea by alleviating symptoms.

What is Sleep Apnea?

To understand how ProSomnus Sleep Devices can help you, it is important to know what sleep apnea is and how it affects your health. Sleep apnea is a common condition that is associated with low levels of oxygen and reduced quality of sleep. The condition causes repeated interruptions in breathing at night, which can make you feel sluggish the next day. It is caused by a collapse in the airway during sleep, and can subsequently raise the risk of stroke and other issues such as:

  • Weight gain
  • Headaches
  • Problems with memory
  • Drowsiness during the day
  • High blood pressure
  • Hypertension

How ProSomnus Sleep Devices Can Help

sleep apnea solutions AnchorageProSomnus devices are one of the latest advancements in sleep technology treatments. The devices are a user-friendly and effective therapy to treat your sleep apnea. ProSomnus devices, which are like a mouthguard for both the upper and lower jaws, work by positioning the lower jaw slightly forward in order to elevate the airway while you sleep. This optimal position improves breathing and reduces the risk that the air entering the airway results in snoring. Benefits include:

Reduced breathing interruptions: An open airway means fewer breathing interruptions and a decreased risk of other sleep-apnea-related health issues.

Comfortable: Compared to other sleep apnea treatments like CPAP, ProSomnus devices are more comfortable. CPAP systems contain masks, which are often leaky, ill-fitting, and a hassle to sleep with.

Preferred CPAP alternative: Many patients also have trouble getting used to wearing their CPAP masks every night, and others experience trouble with tolerating the forced air from CPAP machines. CPAP machines are comprised of several parts, including masks, special hoses, and filters, making it difficult for some patients to clean and maintain their machines. These issues are essentially eliminated with ProSomnus devices.

More restful sleep: Deep, restorative sleep is easier with fewer interruptions during sleep. The ProSomnus sleep devices encourage airflow, meaning lapses in breathing are reduced. ProSomnus sleep devices help you get the restorative sleep you need without the use of noisy machines.

Customized sleep apnea solution: A properly positioned jaw while sleeping means snoring is greatly reduced. This is why retainer-like ProSomnus sleep devices are custom-made for your oral anatomy to give you the best result.
