Rest easy with sleep apnea treatment from Dr. Melko
Sleep apnea causes patients to stop breathing and wake up repeatedly throughout the night. Sufferers may have their sleep interrupted hundreds of times each night. When left untreated, sleep apnea takes a severe toll on a person’s overall health, and it can even be life threatening. Dr. Melko provides Sunnyvale patients with relief from sleep apnea with the appropriate therapy.
Symptoms of Sleep Apnea
Sleep apnea is a disruptive condition affecting the sleep of the sufferer as well as their bed partner. Often, it is not the sufferer who recognizes an issue with their sleep, but someone sleeping (or not) nearby.
The symptoms of sleep apnea include…
- Loud, chronic snoring
- Disrupted sleep
- Frequent waking throughout the night
- Frequent urination
- Daytime drowsiness or fatigue
- Difficulty completing everyday tasks
Left untreated, sleep apnea can wreak havoc on an otherwise healthy person. For instance, people who suffer from the condition are far more likely to experience heart problems such as high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, and heart attack.
Sleep Apnea Treatment
If you have received a diagnosis for sleep apnea, do not hesitate to get in touch with your Sunnyvale dentist. We are pleased to offer patients relief with oral appliance therapy. Using a custom-fitted device that you would wear only during sleep, we can help keep the airway clear for a full night’s rest. Removable oral appliance therapy is a wonderful option for patients with mild to moderate sleep apnea or for those who have not found relief with traditional CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) therapy.

I love how every time I go for a cleaning Mercedes, the hygenist, is always incredibly gentle, yet thorough. The office environment is phenomenal, and the team as a whole is very professional and efficient. Dr. Melko always takes her time doing a precise exam, thus I feel cared for.
