Snoring & Sleep Apnea
RECOGNIZE THE SIGNS
WHAT IS SNORING?
Tongue in normal position, breathing through the nose, keeps the airway open during sleep to allow normal breathing.
During sleep, the jaw and tongue tend to relax and fall back toward the throat. This reduction in size of the airway will, in some individuals, cause the throat tissues to vibrate. Air being forced through this narrowed opening and the vibrations cause the noises we know as snoring. Snoring can be a sign of an underlying medical disorder known as sleep apnea. Untreated snoring may increase a person’s risk for the development of sleep apnea.
WHAT IS SLEEP APNEA?
Complete blockage of the airway occurs as the base of the tongue falls back against the palate forcing it against the airway back wall.
Sleep apnea occurs when the jaw and tongue fall back against the throat to an extent that the airway closes during sleep. During the closure it sometimes appears as if the person is trying to breath, but no air passes through to the lungs. Eventually, seconds to over a minute, the brain will wake to a lighter sleep stage and the muscles will tighten opening the airway allowing the person to breathe again, the person is rarely aware of these sleep interruptions.
The closure of the airway and not breathing may occur up to 100 or more times per hour each night. This scenario prevents the individual with sleep apnea from reaching the deep restful sleep we all require. The end result is fatigue and daytime sleepiness despite having spent 8 hours or more sleeping. This lack of appropriate sleep and decrease in oxygen levels from sleep apnea can trigger severe and serious health conditions.

We understand the difficulties of making a living, particularly when living with the complications associated with Sleep Apnea – contact us to learn more about how to resolve your exhaustion concerns, so you can keep driving.
If your body isn’t receiving a healthy quantity and quality of sleep, the results can be life-threatening. Common symptoms of Sleep Apnea include excessive yawning, daytime drowsiness, insomnia, headaches, depression, mood swings, and much more. It’s not difficult to imagine how easy it can be to succumb to the discomfort and lose consciousness while at the wheel.

Testimonials of our patients about the sleep apnea treatment by Dr. Scott Danoff and his staff.

There are few prosthodontists around equivalent in knowledge and skill to Dr. Scott Danoff. Over the years, he has done a number of crowns and bridges for me. In addition, I owe him special thanks for creating a dental device for me that has greatly improved a bad case of sleep apnea.

Smiling Patient

Can't sleep right without my oral appliance. When my lower jaw is extended outward it just allows me to breath correctly at night. Open airway means I can breath right at night... and my snoring is history. No more naps at the red lights. Thank you Dr. Danoff.
