Always Tired? Your Life Could Be at Risk

Obstructive sleep apnea is far more dangerous than losing a night of sleep.

Sleep apnea may lead to insomnia, snoring or choking in your sleep, and headaches when you wake up. Our dental office may suggest lifestyle changes, oral devices, or surgery for treatment. It varies, though, depending on what works best for each patient.

How We Treat Obstructive Sleep Apnea.

Treatments for sleep apnea vary depending on the patient. Something as simple as a change of lifestyle can greatly decrease your symptoms. Oral devices can be used to position the mouth differently to stop snoring and improve your condition. Some patients do not improve using a traditional breathing mask at night. The last resort is surgery. The good news is that our doctors work closely with local doctors to treat CPAP-intolerant patients with an FDA-approved oral device for treating obstructive sleep apnea.

The Benefits Of An Oral Appliance

  • Non surgical option
  • Ideal for patients who are CPAP intolerant
  • Clinically proven effective
  • Comfortable relief while sleeping
