Sleep Apnea Treatment in Plantsville

Sleep Apnea Treatment in Southington

Sleep apnea can affect your health, productivity, or, worse still, your relationships. However, it does not have to be permanent. Dr. Nell Salesky and the team at Southington Dentistry have the commitment and expertise to help sleep apnea patients breathe better and quickly get their lives back on track.

What Is Sleep Apnea?

This is a severe sleep disorder that takes place when someone’s breathing is disrupted while asleep. It can occur multiple times throughout the night, preventing you from resting well.

Some of the most common symptoms of sleep apnea include the following:

  • Morning headaches
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Loud snoring
  • Irregular sleep
  • Waking up with a dry throat
  • Drowsiness
  • Insomnia
  • Mood changes and forgetfulness

If you suspect that you or someone you love may be suffering from sleep apnea, you should consider visiting our dental office in Southington for a diagnosis. If not correctly diagnosed and treated, sleep apnea can result in severe health complications such as stroke, heart disease, and high blood pressure.

Causes of Sleep Apnea

There are many potential causes of sleep apnea. A physical airway blockage, such as obesity or enlarged tonsils, may cause sleep apnea. It can also be caused by problems with the nervous system or muscles that control breathing. Some medical conditions, such as heart failure and stroke, can lead to sleep apnea.

What are My Sleep Apnea Treatment Options?

The journey to finding sleep apnea treatment in Southington can be a long one. Luckily, our holistic approach allows us to offer the necessary support at every step. Whether it’s your first time or you have been trying some medications for months without success, Dr. Nell is ready to offer a unique solution to your condition.


Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) is the most common and effective sleep apnea treatment option. CPAP is a machine that provides a gentle flow of air through a mask worn during sleep. This keeps the airway open and prevents snoring and apnea.

Custom-Fit Mouthpieces and Other Dental Appliances

Another common treatment we offer is a custom-fit mouthpiece. This mouthpiece is designed to keep your airway open while you sleep. It is comfortable to wear and easy to care for. We also offer dental appliances that can help treat sleep apnea. These appliances are worn during the day and night and work by keeping your tongue from blocking your airway.

Lifestyle Changes

Sometimes, we recommend lifestyle changes that can help you reduce the pressure on your airways. These recommendations may include smoking cessation and dietary changes.

In addition to these treatments, we offer counseling and education on sleep apnea. We can help you understand sleep apnea and how it affects your health. We can also teach you about the treatment options available and help you choose the one that is right for you.
