What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a medical condition where the patient stops breathing while they sleep. One of the biggest problems resulting from sleep apnea is how much it disrupts sleep – often bringing you out of deep sleep or waking you up completely. Effects of sleep apnea can include feeling drowsy the next day, low energy levels, potential for higher blood pressure as well as potentially increased risk of heart disease or stroke.

Sleep Apnea and Orthodontics?

To formally diagnose sleep apnea, a sleep study must be conducted by a board-certified sleep physician. Once a sleep study confirms your sleep apnea, we can offer you oral sleep appliance therapy as an option.
If you dream about waking up feeling refreshed rather than feeling like you need to go back to bed, let us help you.

Oral appliance therapy is an effective treatment option for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). A custom-fit oral sleep appliance can improve your sleep, restore your alertness and revitalize your health.

About Oral Appliance Therapy
Worn only during sleep, an oral appliance fits like a sports mouth guard or an orthodontic retainer. It supports the jaw in a forward position to help maintain an open upper airway. Research shows that oral appliance therapy is an effective treatment option for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.
