Sleep Apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea affects many Americans and occurs when the airways become blocked during sleep, typically caused by the position of the tongue or jaw. Sleep apnea causes you to stop breathing over and over while you are sleeping and often causes you to wake up, gasping for air. This keeps the brain from getting the oxygen that it needs. When left untreated, sleep apnea can lead to serious health risks such as a heart attack or stroke. 

Symptoms Of Sleep Apnea

  • Excessive daytime drowsiness 
  • Lack of energy
  • Trouble focusing
  • Loud snoring
  • Headaches
  • Mood swings
  • Irritability
  • Poor memory
  • Dry mouth

The Vivos Program 

At Bend Family Dentistry – Third Street, our Vivos program helps us target the root cause of your sleep apnea. Until the cause is known, it is hard to properly treat your sleeping disorder. With the help of a board certified physician, the cause of your sleep apnea can be determined. Our specially-trained dentists can then properly provide treatment that will help you get a good night of rest! 

Until recently, the CPAP machine was one of the most common treatments for sleep apnea. Now, a Vivos device can be custom-made to help you get the sleep that you need. With the Vivos device, treatment is non-invasive and non-surgical and designed to restore you to your normal breathing! Adjustments will be made periodically on the device until treatment is completed. Your dentist will work closely with a medical sleep specialist to make sure you get the best treatment possible.
