OSA happens because the muscles in the throat relax during sleep and reduce the intake of oxygen. The most common cause of this in adults is obesity or excess weight blocking the airway. Other risk factors include anatomical features such as a narrow throat or thick neck muscles, some allergies, smoking and excessive alcohol consumption. In children, the condition is most likely to be caused by enlarged tonsils or a significant overbite.
The team at City Central Dental can offer you a number of different treatment options to treat your sleep apnoea and help restore your sleep pattern. These oral appliances look similar to a mouth guard but are designed to open up your airways during sleep to reduce obstruction. These are ideal for patients with mild to moderate sleep apnoea or snoring issues.
