What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a serious health condition that can disrupt your sleep and your everyday life. Sleep apnea causes pauses in breathing while you are asleep, and these pauses can last anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes. While many people think of sleep apnea and snoring as a simple nuisance, untreated sleep apnea can eventually lead to more severe health conditions.
If you were diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea or believe that you may be suffering from OSA, Passes Dental Care can help you treat your condition through oral appliance therapy, an alternative sleep apnea solution that works just as well as traditional CPAP machines without the associated risks.

What are the Symptoms Of Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea, or OSA, is when the muscles of your throat relax too much during sleep, causing your airway to collapse and block airflow. Snoring can signify sleep apnea, but not all snorers have sleep apnea. Sleep apnea also causes pauses in breathing during sleep (breathing may stop for a few seconds), as well as dry mouth, sore throat, and headaches upon waking.
If you suspect or have been diagnosed with sleep apnea, you could be at a higher risk for the following conditions:
- Heart Disease
- High Blood Pressure (Hypertension)
- Irregular Heartbeat
- Worsening ADHD
Due to the risk of developing more serious health issues, it is crucial to see a specialist if you are experiencing the symptoms of sleep apnea. The sleep experts at Passes Dental Care in Great Neck can help you find an appropriate solution and avoid the health consequences of failing to treat your sleep disorder!
Oral Appliance Therapy for Sleep Apnea
CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) devices have long been considered the standard for sleep apnea treatment, but many sleep apnea patients find the bulky, uncomfortable devices difficult to use. They include a mask that covers the face and a compressor that delivers a steady stream of pressurized air into the airway via a hose. Unfortunately, the large mask makes it difficult to sleep comfortably, and the noise the compressor generates can enhance patient discomfort.
At Passes Dental Care, we offer an alternative sleep apnea treatment solution: oral appliances. Our custom-fit oral appliance is a non-surgical, non-invasive, noiseless device that fits snugly in your mouth while you sleep. Our oral sleep appliances gently shift your jaw and tongue forward so that your air passages remain open all night, allowing you to breathe easily. The sleep apnea treatment device prevents the tongue and other soft tissue from blocking your airway while you sleep.
If you believe you might be suffering from sleep apnea, consider filling out the Epworth Sleepiness Questionnaire. This questionnaire can help you understand your level of risk. Once you have filled out your questionnaire, reach out to the sleep specialists at Passes Dental Care for your sleep apnea consultation.
Our dental team will go over your results and help you determine whether oral appliance therapy is a good option for your situation! Once we have impressions of your mouth, your oral appliance can be manufactured very quickly — so you won't have to wait long to get the sleep you deserve, without the snoring and health risks caused by sleep apnea.
