Columbia, MD (PRWEB) January 31, 2014
Dr. Patricia S. Stoker offers patients better sleep options in 2014 using dental sleep apnea. Patients in Columbia, MD who have resolved to manage sleep apnea in the New Year can benefit from sleep apnea treatment from Dr. Stoker.
There are three types of sleep apnea, with the most common being known as Obstructive Sleep Apnea. In OSA, sufferers experience their breath stopping at times during their sleep. This is caused when oxygen is blocked from passing into the airway by flshy tissue that is in the far portion of the mouth, called the uvula. When this happens, the brain is not allowed to receive the needed amount of oxygen, putting patients at serious risks and making the need for sleep apnea treatment in Columbia, MD important. Over time, inadequate sleep can interfere with a person’s personal life and ability to perform at work by reducing concentration and increasing anxiety.
Dr. Stoker is committed to providing successful dental sleep apnea solutions and works one-on-one with each of her Columbia, MD patients to find the best sleep apnea treatment for their situation. In many cases, a special oral appliance can be worn at night that prevents the collapse of the uvula and allows you to get the sleep that you need and want. These mouth appliances are very minimally invasive and simple to use yet deliver powerful results that can truly change your life.
