Obstructive sleep apnea stems from the periodic blocking of a patient’s airway during sleep when the muscles at the back of the throat relax. The most common symptoms are heavy snoring and poor quality sleep.
Left untreated, sleep apnea can lead to very serious problems. Dr. Karagodsky provides oral appliances that help patients with mild to moderate sleep apnea breathe correctly as they sleep. Resembling a mouth sports guard, the appliance works by advancing the lower jaw slightly forward and keeping the airway open. Sleep apnea devices can improve your sleep and health, and they may be covered by insurance.request an appointment
