Sleep Apnea Treatment

Many people snore while they are asleep. While this is an annoying habit for those who sleep next to you, in some cases, snoring may also be an indication of an underlying health problem such as a sleeping disorder.

Obstructive sleep apnea is a common condition characterized by short and frequent pauses in breathing while a person sleeps. These pauses can occur multiple times in a night and can severely impact your health and quality of your life. Some of the common signs of obstructive sleep apnea are:

  • Snoring
  • Lack of proper sleep quality
  • Waking up unrefreshed and feeling sleepy during the day
  • Irritability and morning headaches

If not treated, sleep apnea puts you at a higher risk of daytime accidents and lifestyle diseases such as diabetes, obesity and heart problems.

What causes sleep apnea?

Snoring occurs when your airway tissues relax while sleeping. This produces a vibrating sound. Not all who snore suffer from sleep apnea, but it is a common symptom amongst those who do suffer from the condition. Regular snoring partially blocks your airway but does not lead to major breathing problems while you sleep. Snoring caused by sleep apnea partially or fully blocks the airway, causing difficulty in breathing, forcing a person to wake up again and again, gasping for air.

Oral Appliance Therapy

Oral appliance therapy is an effective treatment for obstructive sleep apnea and the snoring associated with it. These appliances are custom made and are worn while you sleep. They work by supporting the lower jaw in a frontward position to prevent airway blockage.

Our Happy Patients

"Dr. Tramposch is so lovely. Since moving to the area a year ago, I pushed off finding a local dentist and would drive hours out of the way to go to the one I felt comfortable with. When my wisdom teeth started to grow in a few months ago, I was in a great deal of pain. I called Dr. Tramposch's office in hopes of getting an appointment. Although he was booked for the day, he managed to squeeze me in and did everything he could to ensure I didn't leave the office in pain. He continued to call me and check in on how I was doing for up to two weeks after. I can say I've found my new local/favorite dentist office that I truly enjoy going to."

"My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Tramposch for close to 15 years, and he also takes care of our 3 kids' dental needs. He is consistently voted a top dentist by his peer group and has referred me to equally competent specialists for any issues related to wisdom teeth, etc. Dr. T is very flexible, patient, and always works well with the insurance companies to ensure that we are reimbursed properly. We never have to wait, and he deals expertly with any issues that arise. He also does a great job with our 5 year old son who is afraid to have his teeth cleaned. Most of all, he and his staff are very pleasant and great to visit twice a year. Highly recommend!"

"I love Dr. Tramposch!! He is professional but fun, especially with our daughter and always very kind. Every time I go there he always puts me at ease and listens to my concerns. He is very thorough and takes his time when addressing what the next step should be (if any) and answers my questions in ways that I can understand. I always leave feeling taken care of, he is a great dentist. His new dental assistant Vira is so delicate with cleaning my sensitive teeth! And Diana is such a sweet girl, always cordial on the phone. I recommend this practice a million times over!"
