Tired of being tired all the time? If you are constantly waking up with headaches or feeling exhausted, you may be suffering from sleep apnea. At Dr. Patty Miami, we can diagnose and treat sleep apnea with solutions that will restore your ability to get a good night’s sleep so you can wake up feeling rested and refreshed.
What Is Sleep Apnea?
Sleeping is one of life’s few pleasures we can all count on — except when we can’t. Snoring, tossing and turning, and consistently waking up in the middle of the night are all signs you should talk to your dentist about sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder that affects millions of Americans of all ages. It is characterized by repeated pauses in breathing during sleep that can last anywhere from a few seconds to several minutes. These interruptions in breathing can occur hundreds of times during the night without you even realizing they’re happening.
If left untreated, sleep apnea can increase your risk of severe health-related problems, such as:
- High blood pressure
- Irregular heartbeat (cardiac arrhythmia)
- Gastric reflux
- Heart attack
- Heart failure

How Dr. Patty Miami Can Help You Sleep Happily Again
The first step in treating sleep apnea is getting the right diagnosis. Once your Dr. Patty Miami dentist evaluates your health and sleep patterns, they will recommend the most appropriate treatment for your individual situation and lifestyle.
CPAP, or continuous positive airway pressure, is the gold-standard treatment for obstructive and central sleep apnea. CPAPs, like the name suggests, provide a constant flow of oxygen during sleep to keep your breathing from stopping. These machines usually involve a mask that you wear over your face while you sleep or a tube that goes in the nose area.
In many cases, mild sleep apnea and snoring can be successfully treated with oral appliances. One of the most common causes of snoring and sleep apnea is the collapse of the soft palate muscles during sleep, resulting in an obstruction of the airway. The main purpose of an oral appliance is to keep the airway open during sleep. This is achieved by moving the tongue or lower jaw forward and upward, so there’s more room for you to breathe.
At Dr. Patty Miami, we specialize in designing and crafting the right oral appliance to suit your lifestyle and needs. Our sleep apnea mouthpieces are small and easy to wear — and best of all, they are custom-made for the best fit possible.
Not getting enough sleep messes with you from head to toe. Lack of sleep has been linked to serious issues, including diabetes, depression, weight gain, and heart disease. It can also affect your work performance, your personal and social life and wreak havoc on your skin, making it look [older], puffy, and dehydrated.
