You may be suffering from a variety of sleep disorders including Sleep Apnea. Our dental office is now treating patients with Sleep Apnea and snoring problems. Sleep apnea is a major contributing force to coronary artery disease, stroke, hypertension, Type 2 diabetes and a number of motor vehicle and occupational accidents.
Why a dental office?
Oral therapy is the treatment of choice when a patient does not qualify for a C-pap machine or cannot tolerate one. Dentists have the expertise in examinations of the mouth and will evaluate the possibility of airway obstructions. They have expertise for designing oral sleep appliances to help reduce the risk of sleep apnea.

It was great that my dental hygienist noticed that I was grinding my teeth. She suggested that I take a test to see if my sleep was being impeded because of the grinding and the snoring. I have been wearing my oral device for more than a year, and I feel more refreshed in the morning after getting more oxygen. I highly recommend the device.
I was using a CPAP for 3 years which is cumbersome especially with traveling. The oral device is small and easy to use and I now wake up refreshed. Love it.
My sleep apnea was severe enough that it required treatment. I tried several different masks with no success. Finally, my dentist recommended a dental appliance. I found that it was very easy to adapt to and it really has made a big difference in my sleep.
The appliance has made a positive difference on my sleep and was easy to adjust to.
My appliance has allowed me to sleep better throughout the night without waking up intermittently so much. I can actually sleep straight through the night very regularly. I also feel like I have more energy in the morning. My iwatch sleep tracker also has been showing way better sleep patterns and restful sleep since I have been using the device. The device itself does not bother me at all physically as it is totally comfortable once you get the correct setting down. The most important aspect however has been that I don’t keep the wife up all night with snoring and we actually can sleep in the same bed again! She says my snoring is completely gone using the device.
