Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder characterized by abnormal pauses in breathing or instances of abnormally low breathing during sleep. Each pause in breathing, called an apnea, can last from a few seconds to minutes, and may occur 5 to 30 times or more an hour.
Individuals with Sleep apnea have daytime fatigue, impaired reaction time and vision problems which can contribute to sleep-deprived driving. Other effects include difficulty with information processing, judgment, and short term memory.
Curtis Wiebe, your Signature 28 Professional, is pleased to provide custom fit mouth pieces that are fitted between the teeth. These devices help prevent snoring for those who suffer from mild/moderate sleep apnea. The oral appliances prevent the jaw from dropping open during sleep, thereby preventing the tongue from falling into the throat, which is the catalyst for snoring. Like CPAP machines, oral appliances are worn only during bed time.
