Obstructive Sleep Apnea Treatment
Achieving the Quality Sleep You Deserve
Quality of sleep is quality of life
Getting a full night’s sleep not only makes you feel great, but it boosts your immune system and improves several aspects of your overall health. Unfortunately, if you have a condition like obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), like approximately 25 million Americans do, you’re not achieving the quality sleep you deserve. In addition, more than three times that number snore, which can impact sleep quality as well. At LaGrange Oral Surgery & Implant Center, we offer treatment to help you wake up every morning feeling fully rested and ready to face the day.

What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?
When someone has sleep apnea, they experience pauses in breathing while sleeping. The body then goes into “panic mode,” forcing you to wake up so that you can properly take in the air you need. If this occurs several times a night, it can prevent you from settling into the deep stages of sleep you need to feel well-rested.
OSA, the most common form of sleep apnea, is the result of soft tissues in the back of the mouth and throat collapsing during the night, blocking your airway. In some cases, these blockages can happen dozens of times an hour, often without your even realizing what’s going on or why you wake up still tired. In other cases, you may remember waking up in the middle of the night gasping or out of breath.
