    What Is Sleep Apnea

    Sleep apnea is a well-known sleep disorder that presents with minute breathing pauses during sleep. These breathing pauses may last from a few seconds to a full minute and may occur repeatedly throughout the night.

    The most common type of this condition is obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). It occurs when your tongue and throat muscles relax during sleep, thus blocking the airway passage. Due to this temporary blockage, you may wake up suddenly with a choke or gasp. These symptoms are uncommon with snoring.

    Whether you have sleep apnea or snoring, it is important to seek professional treatment from our specialists in St. John’s, NL, as early as possible. Lack of intervention can impact your oral and general health.

    Questions About Sleep Apnea and Snoring Treatment?

    Potential Health Risks of Sleep Apnea

    Many people confuse sleep apnea with regular snoring, but the two are different in many ways. Sleep apnea is a much more serious concern that can influence your physical and mental well-being. Research indicates that OSA can increase the risk of heart attack, stroke, and depression. It has also been associated with type 2 diabetes and hypertension.

    Apart from physical health, this sleep disorder can impact your mental health as well. You may experience daytime drowsiness, lack of concentration, irritability, or frequent mood swings, all due to the lack of proper sleep at night. For these reasons, we suggest getting early sleep apnea and snoring treatment in St. John’s, NL, for maintaining your health and well-being.

    From the moment that I first met Dr. Chedella at his dentist chair, I knew I was in good hands. I had implants started in another country but not finished due to the pandemic. Dr. Chedella did a perfect job in completing the procedure. After waiting 20 months in limbo, I can't thank you enough Dr. Chedella.

    Nice friendly staff. The doctor gave practical, easy advice on every day changes I could make to help my TMJ problem - and it worked! One of the few specialists I’ve seen in years who I didn’t feel was trying to push an expensive device or unnecessary procedure on me - it was refreshing.

    Get Comfortable Sleep Apnea and Snoring Treatment in St. John’s, NL

    Traditionally, CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) therapy was the only effective way of treating sleep apnea. Despite its advantages, many people find it difficult to comply with this treatment. Thanks to the advancements in dentistry, there are now easier and more comfortable options available to treat this condition.

    At our practice, we offer customized oral appliances for snoring and sleep apnea. These appliances hold your tongue in place and reposition your jaws to keep the airway open during sleep. This way, they reduce loud snoring and prevent breathing pauses while you rest comfortably.

    The appliance is easy to wear and fits snugly over your teeth like a mouthguard. With this treatment, you can rest well each night and wake up feeling more fresh and rejuvenated.
