Snoring Treatment in Fort Lauderdale Florida
People in Fort Lauderdale who suffer from persistent loud snoring should consult with Dr. Stephen J. Pyle DDS, a leading expert in treatment of snoring in the Fort Lauderdale area. Persistent snoring, gasping for air at night and waking up drowsy are all symptoms of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OAS) a health condition that can lead to serious, even fatal diseases including stroke, heart attack or the onset of diabetes.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea occurs when the soft tissue in the back of your throat relaxes during sleep and partially or completely blocks the airway cutting off oxygen to the blood stream. Snoring is your body’s response to clear a blocked airway. Unfortunately frequent interruptions of oxygen will, over time, result in negative effects. A trip to Dr. Pyle’s office can be the start of correcting the condition, increasing your energy and a solid night’s sleep without disturbing you or your partner with loud snoring.
Providing Fort Lauderdale with Effective, Easy Treatment to Stop Snoring
If you are diagnosed with OSA you have a choice of two therapies. For years the standard therapy was a machine that pumped air under pressure through a mask worn at night that kept the tissue from collapsing. This involved a mask that covered the nose and mouth, a hose connected to an electric pump, and of course a source of electricity. This therapy (known as CPAC) is not well tolerated by patients.
The option is a dental appliance and that’s the therapy Dr. Pyle excels at. Dr. Pyle specializes in using dental appliances from SomnoDent, a cutting edge provider of dental appliances. The appliance fits in your mouth and slightly adjusts the position of the jaw ensuring that the airway cannot be blocked. They are custom fitted, allow you to speak and drink liquids and are tolerated by over 95% of the patients that use them.
There’s no question they are the best option. They are comfortable to wear, eliminate the snoring, and most importantly allow a night’s sleep without any dangerous interruption of the airway.
