What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?

obstructive sleep apnea

Are you having problems sleeping at night? Do you sometimes wake up the next day and still feel tired? Do you sometimes wake up in the middle of the night gasping for air? If you exhibit these symptoms or others such as a morning headache, high blood pressure, and difficulty concentrating during the day, you might need obstructive sleep apnea solutions.

Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when something partly or completely blocks your upper airway when you are sleeping. This causes the muscles used for respiration to work harder. This increased force working with the narrowed airway causes the snoring or gasping sound that the body creates during apnea. This can lead to the symptoms mentioned above and even worse issues such as decreased libido and irritability.

What are our solutions?

Luckily at SGS, we specialize in obstructive sleep apnea solutions. We believe in products known as intra-oral appliances which help people with obstructive sleep apnea and bruxism.

Intra-oral appliances are pieces that rest in the client’s mouth. When in the mouth, they help pull the jaw forward. With the jaw being pulled forward, the airway is opened allowing positive airflow to occur through the nasal duct. There are a variety of options available on Sleep Group Solutions. Such types offered are thinner centerpieces, which allow more room for the tongue and increased lateral mobility.
