What Is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder characterized by repeated interruptions in breathing during sleep. The most common type, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), occurs when the muscles in the throat relax excessively, blocking the airway. This leads to pauses in breathing or shallow breathing, resulting in frequent awakenings and disrupted sleep.

Signs & Symptoms

Recognizing the signs of sleep apnea is crucial for timely treatment. Common symptoms include:

  • Loud snoring
  • Episodes of breathing cessation during sleep
  • Abrupt awakenings accompanied by gasping or choking
  • Morning headaches
  • Daytime sleepiness or fatigue
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Mood changes, such as depression or irritability

The Importance Of Treatment

Untreated sleep apnea can lead to various health issues, including high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and daytime fatigue-related accidents. Effective treatment not only improves your sleep quality but also your overall health and well-being.

Our Treatment Options

At Manchester Family Dental, we offer several treatment options for sleep apnea. After reviewing the options below, we invite you to set up a consultation with our providers so we can discuss the best option for you. 


Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is a common treatment for sleep apnea. It involves wearing a mask over the nose and/or mouth while sleeping. The mask is connected to a machine that delivers a continuous stream of air, keeping the airways open. CPAP is highly effective in treating sleep apnea, but it does require consistent use and may take some time to get used to.

Oral Appliances

For those who find CPAP uncomfortable or unsuitable, oral appliances offer an effective alternative. These custom-fitted devices are designed to keep the airway open by repositioning the jaw or tongue during sleep. They are portable, easy to use, and effective for many patients with mild to moderate OSA.
