• Sleep Apnea

Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a serious medical condition that affects 18 million people in the United States alone. If left untreated, it can lead to serious medical problems. The most common type of sleep apnea is Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). OSA is when your airway becomes obstructed in some way. Usually from your throat collapsing as you sleep. Air is therefore not reaching your lungs like it should. At Cardinal Park Family Dental Care, we can provide those in Leesburg, VA in Loudoun County with SilentNite®, an OSA treatment.

Silent Nite® for Sleep Apnea Treatment

sleep apnea

Silent Nite is a custom made plastic dental device that moves the lower jaw into a more forward position. This increases the space in your airway tube and reduces soft tissue vibration and air velocity. The fit is comfortable because the device is custom made with heat and pressure to fit the model the dentist took of your mouth. Patients have found this to be very effective to prevent snoring.
