It's very important for patients to get a good night's sleep. Sometimes snoring and sleep apnea can affect that.
Snoring basically is affected by the tongue falling back in the mouth when the patient gets relaxed when they're sleeping. Sleep apnea is a little bit different story in that the patient actually stops breathing during the night.
So, here in our office, we can treat snoring and sleep apnea with an appliance that actually will bring the patient's jaw forward so that the tongue doesn't fall back in the throat to obstruct the airway, and it keeps the airway open so that they can breathe. And in snoring, prevent that noise that you hear with the obstruction of the airway so that they can breathe through the night and get a comfortable night's sleep.

We Offer Relief From Sleep Apnea
You may not know much about sleep apnea, or that we offer sleep apnea treatment along with our other dental services. Sleep apnea symptoms occur when your airway becomes temporarily blocked while sleeping. This condition is caused by your tongue and other soft tissues in the back of your throat relaxing to the point that they cut off your air supply.
When this happens, your brain signals your body to wake up and take in additional oxygen. After you do, you usually drift off to sleep once more. That is, until the next cycle of sleep apnea occurs, which can happen hundreds of times per night for sufferers of severe sleep apnea!
Using a custom-made oral appliance, we can help you get sleep apnea under control. The appliance will gently move your lower jaw forward to help keep your airway open while you sleep. Plus, because air moving across those soft tissues causes snoring, the device will help you do less of that as well. You and your bed partner will both thank us!
You’ll sleep better and wake up feeling refreshed. Because your body is getting the rest it needs, you’ll perform better throughout your day, and you’ll have less tendency to feel groggy and irritable. Plus, you’ll lower your risk of heart attack, strokes, high blood pressure, and diabetes – all of which have been linked to sleep apnea symptoms. To see if your new appliance can be covered by your medical insurance, simply provide a letter from your physician with the details of your diagnosis.
