Obstructive sleep apnea is a condition that many people suffer from, often without even knowing it. Sleep apnea is a condition in which the tongue and throat relax at night and block the airflow into the lungs. In order to combat obstructive sleep apnea and give you a better night of sleep, Dr. Janice Hall Ormsby can help find the sleep apnea appliance that is right for you.
Wearing a custom-fit sleep apnea device can relieve your symptoms associated with obstructive sleep apnea. Sleep apnea can cause fatigue and sleepiness, dry mouth and sore throat, headaches, night sweats, trouble concentrating, and snoring. Sleep apnea can also affect children, resulting in symptoms such as drooling, bedwetting, trouble concentrating in school, restlessness, night sweats, and unusual sleeping positions.
