Sleep Apnea Therapy – Wilmington, VT

Stop Snoring and Sleep Well

Loud snoring, gasping for air during the night, and feeling tired all throughout the day are all potential signs of sleep apnea, a disorder characterized by the regular cessation of breathing for ten seconds or more while you’re asleep. This extremely common sleep disorder affects over 20 million patients in the United States, and it often leads to exhaustion, poor workplace performance, and – in the worst-case scenario – death. At Deerfield Valley Dental Care, you can schedule a consultation with Dr. Ruhl to confirm whether you have sleep apnea and explore treatment options.

Sleep Apnea Treatment

Any sleep apnea treatment begins with the most basic step: diagnosis. We need to confirm whether snoring and other symptoms are actually being caused by sleep apnea or another type of sleep disorder. We offer both in-office and at-home sleep testing; you can choose which one you’d prefer. (We highly recommend at-home sleep testing, as the comfort of your own bed can make it easier to fall asleep so that the necessary data can be gathered.) The next step of the process depends on what the results of the test are.

Oral Appliance Therapy

Are you looking for an alternative to CPAP? Many people who can’t tolerate the noise and discomfort of a CPAP machine turn to oral appliances instead. The appliance will hold your jaw in a position that keeps the airway open; it can also prevent the tongue from collapsing back onto the throat, causing a blockage. There are different types of oral appliances available, such as Herbst and TAP Dream; no matter which kind you receive, you can be sure that it has been fully personalized to help you enjoy sweet dreams.
