If you or a family member does not wear the C-Pap device, or is experiencing loud, gasping snores or extended pauses in breathing during the night, it may be a sign of sleep apnea syndrome, which can lead to more serious conditions. In order to treat a sleep apnea disability, individuals with this condition should seek an experienced neuromuscular dentist.

Prospective patients with sleep apnea in Columbus or the central Ohio area can seek the help of Dr. Levy for more comfortable, healthy conditions.
What is sleep apnea?
Sleep apnea is a condition where a person stops breathing periodically throughout the night and sometimes for dangerously long periods of time. Typically, this can be recognized by excessive snoring that involves gasping or snorting.
Some of the potential risks and side effects of sleep apnea include the following:
• Fatigue and sleeplessness that lasts all day
• Heart attack
• Panic attacks
In preventing these problems from arising, Dr. Levy may provide patients with a sleep apnea oral appliance. This sleep apnea dental device is somewhat similar to a night guard, or “bite guard,” and is worn to maintain the airway opening.
To learn more about this condition and your options with the sleep apnea dental appliance, please contact the office of Dr. Levy. Feel free to see some of Dr. Levy’s cosmetic patient results by viewing our smile gallery. You may also watch our patient testimonial videos.
