Get Relief From Our Simple Treatment

When you visit our Bloomington, MN office for a consultation, your dentist will begin by discussing your symptoms. Then he will give you an exam. He’ll measure your airways with a pharyngometer and then map your nasal passage with a rhinometer. You shouldn’t expect to feel any pain during your exam.

If it appears you are suffering from this sleep disorder, we can make you a custom mouthguard. This oral device will create more space in the back of your mouth by gently pushing your jaw and tongue forward. Because your mouthguard is designed just for you, you’ll experience a more comfortable fit.

Protect Yourself From the Complications of Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is when you take pauses in your breathing while sleeping. If that sounds serious, it’s because it is. These little breaks in your breathing make it difficult for your body and brain to get the necessary levels of oxygen. If you’re a man, you’re two to three times more likely than a woman to suffer from this sleep disorder.

There are two types of sleep apnea, obstructive and central. Central sleep apnea is related to the nervous system and is far more rare. We can treat you for the much more common form, obstructive sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea is caused when your tongue and the relaxed tissues in the back of your throat block your airway while you sleep.

This sleep condition can increase your risk for:

  • Depression
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke

If you’re concerned you might have sleep apnea in Bloomington, you should get diagnosed as quickly as possible for the sake of your overall health and well-being.
