What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?

Obstructive sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder that happens when a person’s breathing starts and stops, perhaps hundreds of times, while sleeping. If left untreated it can be dangerous to your health, even fatal.

Effects of Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea can increase the risk of health problems, including:

  • High blood pressure
  • Stroke
  • Heart failure, irregular heart beats, and heart attacks
  • Diabetes
  • Depression
  • Worsening of ADHD
  • Headaches
  • Decreased sex drive

Untreated obstructive sleep apnea can also be responsible for poor performance in everyday activities such as work and school and motor vehicle accidents.

 

Treat Your Obstructive Sleep Apnea with Oral Appliance Therapy

 

Used during sleep, an oral appliance is worn like an orthodontic retainer. It supports the jaw in a forward position to help keep the upper airway open. Oral appliance therapy is an effective treatment option for obstructive sleep apnea.


An Alternative to CPAP

CPAP is traditionally prescribed for treatment of sleep apnea; however, many adults find it uncomfortable or inconvenient. Sadly, some discontinue CPAP use and remain untreated. There are alternatives.

Oral appliance therapy is an effective, convenient and comfortable alternative to CPAP for treating sleep apnea that you can start right away.


How MATRx plus™ Can Help

The MATRx plus is an easy-to-use, FDA-cleared and Health Canada-licensed, device that conducts at-home sleep tests to diagnose if you have obstructive sleep apnea and lets you know if an oral appliance will be an effective treatment.

After completing the MATRx plus test, your dentist will know:

  • If oral appliance therapy is right for you and the ideal jaw position for your custom fit appliance; or
  • If your sleep apnea cannot be effectively treated with an oral appliance, before you invest time and money in a therapy that won’t work
