What is sleep apnea?
The word “apnea” literally means “without breath.” Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the most common form of the condition, which is characterized by a restriction in the airway that impedes breathing. Sufferers stop breathing for several seconds or a minute at a time, and these episodes occur repeatedly during the night.
For patients diagnosed with OSA, Dr. Gasper may prescribe a custom oral appliance to keep them breathing freely throughout the night. The appliance he prefers is made by SomnoMed, called the SomnoDent MAS. This device positions the jaw forward so the airway stays open while you sleep.
