Sleep disorders, like sleep apnea and snoring, can disrupt your sleep and negatively impact your overall health. That's why our dentists offer oral appliances for treatment.
Sleep apnea is characterized by abnormal breathing pauses during sleep. These pauses (apneas) can happen because of a physical blockage to airflow, a lack of respiratory effort, or both. These mini-episodes can occur hundreds of times a night, which prevents you from getting the deep, restorative sleep you need.
The only way to know for sure if you have sleep apnea is to undergo an assessment by a medical professional.
Once you've been diagnosed, our dentists can help you achieve a better night’s sleep with an oral appliance.
Oral appliance, worn while you sleep, work by moving the lower jaw and tongue muscles forward.
This opens the airway to improve the flow of breath and prevent you from waking up frequently during the night.
