Sleep Apnea Treatment

Dentist in Bridgeton, MO

Sleep apnea is a prevalent condition that can significantly impact your quality of life, leading to daytime fatigue, cardiovascular issues, and more. At the dental office of Dr. Kevin Burgdorf, DDS, we’re dedicated to providing innovative and effective solutions for sleep apnea, going beyond traditional dental care to ensure our patients lead healthier, more restful lives.

Understanding Sleep Apnea and Its Impact

Sleep apnea is characterized by repeated interruptions in breathing during sleep, with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) being the most common form. These interruptions can lead to a cascade of health issues, from high blood pressure to increased risks of heart disease and stroke. Recognizing the symptoms of sleep apnea is the first step toward reclaiming a good night’s sleep and improving your overall health.

Symptoms of Sleep Apnea:

  • Loud, chronic snoring
  • Frequent pauses in breathing while asleep, often followed by gasping or choking
  • Excessive daytime sleepiness and fatigue
  • Morning headaches and dry mouth
  • Difficulty concentrating and mood changes

Innovative Sleep Apnea Treatment Options

At our Bridgeton, MO, practice, Dr. Kevin Burgdorf, DDS, offers personalized treatment plans for sleep apnea, focusing on non-invasive, comfortable solutions that fit seamlessly into your lifestyle.

CPAP Therapy: While CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) is a common and effective treatment for sleep apnea, it’s not suitable or comfortable for everyone. Dr. Burgdorf understands these challenges and is committed to exploring all available options to ensure the best outcomes for his patients.

Oral Appliance Therapy: For those who cannot tolerate CPAP, oral appliance therapy presents a convenient and effective alternative. These custom-fitted devices are designed to keep your airway open while you sleep by gently repositioning your jaw or tongue. Dr. Burgdorf works closely with patients to ensure their oral appliance is comfortable, effective, and tailored to their specific needs.

The Benefits of Oral Appliance Therapy:

    • Comfort and Convenience: Oral appliances are small, lightweight, and easy to wear, making them a preferred choice for many patients.

    • Travel-Friendly: Unlike CPAP machines, oral appliances are easy to transport, making them ideal for patients who travel frequently.

    • Quiet and Discreet: Oral appliances operate silently and are virtually invisible, ensuring both you and your partner can enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep.

A Comprehensive Approach to Care

Dr. Burgdorf’s approach to sleep apnea treatment extends beyond providing oral appliances. He conducts thorough evaluations to understand the root cause of your sleep apnea and collaborates with sleep specialists as needed. Our team is also here to guide you through lifestyle modifications that can further improve your sleep quality and overall health.
