Sleep apnea can disturb your–or your partner’s–sleep and leave you bleary-eyed and fatigued every morning.
Did you know that some dentists are trained to manage and treat your sleep apnea and snoring problems?
Sleep apnea often results in drowsy driving (a huge risk) and increases the risks of other conditions like diabetes, heart disease, and hypertension.
This condition usually occurs due to flaccid muscles at the back of the throat or a misaligned jaw. You may also grind your teeth in your sleep. Our experienced dentists will carefully examine your teeth surfaces for signs of wear and tear.
Dental treatment for sleep apnea usually involves the use of oral appliance therapy. Custom-fit oral devices can hold the jaw in place and prevent the airway from collapsing during sleep.
Once you come in for your first visit, our skilled dentist thoroughly evaluates your teeth, gums, jaw, and lips to get a high-quality oral appliance created. Our well-fitted oral appliances are convenient to use, easy to care for, and portable.
We will examine the fit of the appliance and will adjust it (if necessary) until you are fully satisfied with how you feel. It’s always better to consult a qualified dentist as OTC oral appliances that are ill-fitting may push your tongue to the back of your throat.
