What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a common disorder that affects millions of people throughout the world. When an individual suffers from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), breathing will stop while asleep for 10 seconds or more because of a blockage in the airway. It then causes the brain to trigger the body to breathe. Over time, if left untreated, it can lead to a heart attack, stroke, or another, more serious health problem.
Oral Appliance Therapy
While CPAP therapy is the most popular option for sleep apnea treatment, oral appliance therapy is quickly becoming a preferred choice. Using EMA, Prosomnus, and Somnomed devices, we can have a specialized appliance made to fit your mouth and keep your airway open. As a result, it minimizes your chances of experiencing apnea episodes night after night, so you can start breathing better and achieving greater sleep.
Partnered with Sleep Physicians
Seeing a dentist for sleep apnea therapy is essential, but it’s also necessary that local sleep physicians be a part of the process as well. To formally diagnose a patient, our dental office partners with local experts who can review a person’s sleep test results and declare the severity of their condition. Based on the findings, our team will work with you to identify the appropriate oral appliance to improve your quality of life.
