SLEEP APNEA:

Sleep apnea is a symptom in which the throat walls close and obstruct breathing.  Most people have obstructive sleep apnea these days.  When you are sleeping and relaxed, the throat also relaxes and leads to narrowing down the airway, which produces a snoring sound when breathing. Obstructive sleep apnea can be increased to a hundred in severe cases.

The most common symptoms of Sleep Apnea are:

  • Feeling unusually tired during the day
  • Feel a dry or sore throat in the night.
  • Waking up suddenly during the sleep
  • Difficulty with focus and memory
  • Pause in breathing
  • Loud snoring
  • Headaches in the morning and sleepy during the day.
  • Feel tired and irritate

Some of the treatments and remedies for sleep apnea suggested by the specialists are:

  • Change of lifestyle, such as changing sleep positions, weight loss, and allergy treatments. Losing weight may help you to improve or eliminate your symptoms of sleep apnea.
  • Surgery in case the oral appliances are not working for you.
  • Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) appliance. A CPAP device is used to keep your airways open as you sleep. The device uses mild air pressure and is attached to a mask that fits in your nose.
  • Oral devices, such as Mandibular advancement anti-snoring devices (MAD).

MAD FUNCTIONING:

Mandibular Advancement Device is an alternative treatment that temporarily moves the jaw and tongue forward.  It reduces throat constriction and stops sleep apnea and snoring. Moving the tongue forward increases the airway space.

Some of the MAD devices are custom fit while some devices are also known as boil-and-bite devices. The unique feature is the soft materials that become more flexible under exposure to hot water. Biting down the flexible mold help to fit the device.

However, MAD devices are recommended for people who wear dentures or have severe dental issues.
