Airway Dentistry: Restful Nights for a Productive Day

The value of a good night’s sleep can’t be overstated. Unfortunately for many of us, we don’t get the quality of rest necessary for a productive day and find ourselves dependent on coffee or sugary drinks to get the energy we need throughout the day.

However, there is simply no substitute for a good night’s sleep. Specifically, we need REM and deep-wave sleep, the deepest stages of our sleep cycle which is critical for both our bodies and minds to re-energize so we can wake up feeling our finest.

Signs Airway Dentistry Could Help You

If you aren’t getting enough sleep, it can take a toll on your health. Here are just a few warning signs you aren’t getting the quality of sleep you need:

  • Feeling tired when waking up, despite getting the recommended hours of sleep.
  • Increased irritability, forgetfulness, or the inability to concentrate.
  • Lacking the energy you need for the day or depending on caffeine for energy.

If you have any of these symptoms, odds are you’re not getting deep sleep while resting. But don’t blame your mattress or pillows yet! There’s a good chance you can’t get into the deepest stage of sleep due to the oxygen levels your body requires to achieve it. Luckily, you can address this issue directly with airway dentistry treatments that let you breathe easy every night!

Oral Appliances Provide a Streamlined Sleep Solution

Several studies have suggested that as many as 1 in 3 adults suffer from some sort of sleep disorder, preventing them from getting the health benefits that come with rest. One of the most common causes of these disorders comes from the inability to get the proper amount of air while we sleep.

You see, our breathing pattern often changes when we enter REM sleep, as our minds are entering a more active stage of sleep. If there is anything that hinders this new breathing pattern, our bodies automatically respond by “micro-waking,” making for a restless night.

Thankfully, your friends at Fairchance Dental Arts have a straightforward solution in the form of airway dentistry appliances. Inspired by mouthguards and orthodontic retainers, airway appliances position your jaw and tongue and support your palette to optimize your airflow at night.

They literally let you breathe easy at night, letting you get the REM sleep needed to revitalize your body and mind.

Benefits of Airway Dentistry

At Fairchance Dental Arts, we want to provide you with a healthy, happy smile and help you feel at your best so you can enjoy showing off that smile. That is why our airway dentistry solutions can improve your overall well-being by helping you get the restorative rest you deserve.

By creating a unique oral appliance specifically designed for your mouth, we can comfortably correct some of the most common issues that disrupt your sleep cycle. This includes chronic snoring, where a softening of the palette disrupts airflow, or obstructive sleep apnea, which lowers oxygen levels while sleeping.

Get a Restful Sleep

With our help, you can improve the quality of your rest and enjoy all the benefits it brings! Here are just a few advantages to an uninterrupted REM sleep cycle:

  • Increased Energy: A restorative night’s rest will let you wake up with more energy, allowing you to be more productive at work or enjoy social functions to their fullest—all without the need for sugary drinks or caffeine!
  • Strengthened Immune System: The refreshed feeling we get after a good night’s sleep is the result of our bodies and minds being allowed to recover in REM sleep. Without it, your body releases the stress hormone cortisol to compensate, which weakens your immune system and is directly linked to heart disease.
  • Improved Oral Health: Fatigue is the most common side effect of a poor sleep cycle. Most of us will turn to coffee, sports drinks, or sugary foods for a short-lived energy boost. Unfortunately, harmful bacteria in our mouths also get energy from these sources, increasing our risk of gum disease or cavities.

There’s no need to go another restless night when our office is just a call or click away. Contact Fairchance Dental Arts for an airway dentistry consultation to get all the benefits of a full night’s rest. We are available by phone, email, or you can message us by clicking here.

The Airway Dentistry Services We Offer

How do we produce these high-quality sleep solutions? By working together with each patient to meet their needs! It begins with a consultation, where our dedicated dental professionals will discuss your treatment goals and which services will be best to reach them.

The Examination

Next is an examination, where we can determine the source of any airflow disruptions that are negatively impacting your sleep cycle. There can be many causes for obstructive sleep apnea. Some come with age, such as the softening of the palette, which can also lead to chronic snoring.

Other factors can include jaw alignment or even where our tongues naturally rest when we sleep. Each variable can impact airflow and oxygen levels, so each needs to be properly identified to provide you with a truly customized treatment.

Creating Your Oral Appliance

After identifying any obstructions that are impacting your sleep, we will create an oral appliance that is personalized to fit your mouth. Simply wear the appliance as directed before you head to bed, where it will comfortably support or adjust sections of your mouth, allowing you to breathe deeply and maintain proper oxygen levels throughout the night.

What About CPAP Machines?

CPAP Machines work by pumping air through a mask to keep your oxygen levels steady. This makes them a great solution for all types of sleep apnea, not just obstructive sleep apnea. However, for many patients with obstructive sleep apnea, oral appliances are preferred because they are more comfortable, convenient, and they are silent.

Who Does Obstructive Sleep Apnea Affect?

It is a common misconception that sleep apnea only impacts certain demographics like seniors. The truth is there are dozens of potential obstructions to your airways, meaning anyone is at risk for sleep apnea.

In fact, oral appliances are one of the most recommended treatments for pediatric sleep apnea!
