Dr. Brock Rondeau of Dr. Rondeau and Associates, a general dentist with a focus on orthodontics in London, is offering patients ways to sleep better at night time with sleep apnea treatments. Sleep apnea is a type of breathing disorder which is a serious, and potentially life-threatening condition characterized by brief interruptions of breathing during sleep.

“People who snore loudly are often the target of bad jokes and middle of the night elbow thrusts, but snoring is no laughing matter. While loud, disruptive snoring may strain relationships, it may signal a potentially life threatening disorder: obstructive sleep apnea. I am pleased to offer my patients a safe alternative for treating sleep apnea and allowing them to rest easy at night,” said Dr. Brock Rondeau, general dentist with a focus on London orthodontics.

The signs and symptoms of OSA include snoring, excessive daytime sleepiness, gasping or choking during the night, non-refreshed sleep, fragmented sleep, clouded memory, irritability, personality changes and morning headaches.

In September 1995 the American Sleep Disorder Association endorsed oral appliance therapy as the third currently acceptable treatment modality for snoring and sleep apnea. The largest number of patients suffering from obstructive sleep apnea is in the mild to moderate categories and should be treated with oral appliances.

Despite the fact that treatment with the CPAP in London, and other areas, is extremely successful, there are a number of patients who cannot or choose not to wear the face mask with the attached air compressor. For these patients, oral appliances provided by a dentist trained in sleep disorders are proving to be an excellent treatment option.

Snoring in London, often times a symptom of sleep apnea, is caused from the vibration at the back of the throat, and dental appliances can sometimes help to minimize or eliminate the problem. In these instances, diagnosis is vital because snoring alone does not automatically signify a serious problem. For basic snorers, a dental appliance can provide relief because it is designed to reposition the jaw, muscles, tissue and tongues. The appliance is used to help breathing become less labored, giving a person more room to breathe quietly.

Dr. Brock Rondeau of Dr. Rondeau & Associates is committed to providing patients with the utmost care and most up-to-date information on dental health care. This is further seen through the advanced treatment of sleep apnea and snoring among his patients. With proper diagnosis and treatment from Dr. Brock Rondeau, patients can have a better night’s sleep.
