Sleep Apnea Therapy – Lutz, FL

How to Get the Quality Sleep You Need

One of the keys to maintaining excellent health and functioning at your absolute best, mentally and physically, is to get proper sleep at night. Therefore, if you’re lacking in this area, then you’ve probably noticed a decline in certain areas of your life. One of the common causes of this problem is sleep apnea, which is the momentary pause in breathing that can happen several times throughout the night and causes you to awaken repeatedly, leaving you lethargic and depleted the next day. The good news is Dr. Nelson has an effective solution: the SomnoDent oral appliance. Visit our office to get relief from sleep apnea in Lutz so you can finally get the rest your body needs.

What is SomnoDent?

The most common form of sleep apnea is obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), a condition that affects over 22 million Americans. For people who suffer from bouts of apnea, increased neck girth from weight gain and the tongue falling to the back of the mouth while sleeping, can be major contributors to poor airflow. As a result, it’s not uncommon for them to be loud snorers.

Thankfully, Dr. Nelson has an effective solution in the SomnoDent oral appliance. An alternative to the traditional method of treating sleep apnea with the more cumbersome CPAP machine, the SomnoDent oral appliance provides quiet, convenient and effective relief.

How Does SomnoDent Work?

The SomnoDent oral appliance is a small and portable device that fits comfortably in your mouth while you sleep. It works by slightly shifting the jaw forward, increasing pressure on the soft tissue and stretching the oral muscles to keep your airway open at night. An added perk is that you’ll be able to speak and drink normally while wearing the appliance. Most importantly, though, for cases of mild-to-moderate OSA, you’ll finally get more quality rest from your nightly sleep cycle.
