CPAP Device and Oral Appliance Offer Options to Treat Sleep Apnea, With Dr. Kevin Cebrynski, Dentist, Scottsdale, Arizona
There are many symptoms associated with sleep apnea, the biggest of which is snoring and the cessation of breathing multiple times throughout the night. The dangers of sleep apnea can range anywhere from general lethargy during the day to severe cardiac disease, brain vascular problems and other deficits throughout the body making it a very system problem, says Dr. Kevin Cebrynski, a dentist in Scottsdale, Arizona with Cebrynski Rehabilitative Dentistry. "It is something that needs to be diagnosed and treated for the patient's long-term health," he says.
There are treatment options available for patients with sleep apnea, such as a CPAP device, or continuous positive airway pressure machine. By wearing the scuba-like mask, positive air is forced through the airway so proper breathing can take place at night and oxygenated blood is not lost. A less-intrusive treatment option is an oral appliance, which is worn on the upper and lower teeth and protrudes the lower jaw so the airway is opened and proper airway circulation occurs.
