Effectively Helping You Sleep Soundly at Night
Made by Panthera, the D-SAD (digital sleep apnea device) is a dental appliance used to treat sleep apnea and snoring. Sleep apnea is a medical condition whereby the muscles in a person’s throat relax while they sleep, causing the person to stop breathing. Another common symptom is loud snoring.
Sleep apnea is a serious condition, and it can lead to:
- High blood pressure
- The worsening of ADHD
- Heart failure, irregular heartbeats, and heart attacks
The D-SAD is a small, soft appliance which resembles a mouth guard. It fits comfortably in your mouth and is placed there shortly before you go to sleep. Essentially, this appliance shifts your lower jaw slightly forward, keeping your airway open and allowing you to sleep soundly at night. It is often preferred over CPAP therapy, which involves a noisy machine that continuously pumps air into a patient’s airway throughout the night.
