If you make choking or gagging sounds in your sleep, or if you frequently wake up with a sore throat, you may be suffering from a condition known as sleep apnea. This condition is caused when something—usually your throat tissues or tongue—obstructs your airway as you sleep. At Dental Associates of Manchester, our dentists can create a custom sleep appliance to keep your airway clear and allow you to breathe easily. We invite you to contact us at 563-927-4746 to schedule your consultation and learn more about the benefits of oral appliance therapy for sleep apnea in Manchester, Iowa.
