Find Sleep Apnea Relief at Smiles by Hale in Naples, FL

Sleep plays a vital role in maintaining your overall health. But for those with sleep apnea, a good night’s rest can be elusive. At Smiles by Hale, we can help. Led by board certified sleep physician, Dr. Hale, we offer sleep apnea and TMJ/TMD treatments that contribute to healthier, more restful sleep.

Sleep Apnea Treatments: The Role of Oral Appliances

Sleep apnea is a disorder characterized by pauses in breathing or shallow breaths during sleep. Traditionally, a machine called a CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) device has been used to treat this condition. However, it can be cumbersome for some patients.

That’s where oral appliances come in. These custom-made devices, similar to mouthguards, gently reposition the jaw and tongue to keep the airway open during sleep. They’re an effective, convenient, and comfortable alternative to a CPAP machine.

What are the Symptoms of Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea often goes undiagnosed as the symptoms occur during sleep. However, these signs can provide clues:

  • Loud snoring
  • Waking up gasping for breath
  • Dry mouth or sore throat upon waking
  • Morning headaches
  • Daytime fatigue
  • Difficulty concentrating

These symptoms don’t just disrupt sleep; they can have serious implications for your health if left untreated.

Your Sleep Apnea Screening: What to Expect

During a sleep apnea screening, Dr. Hale will evaluate your symptoms and medical history. Dr. Hale may also examine your throat, mouth, and nose for any signs of factors that could contribute to sleep apnea, such as a narrowed airway. If needed, a sleep study may be recommended for a more detailed assessment.
