Hate Your Cpap? Snoring Keeping You Awake?

Oral appliance therapy has been recommended by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and the National Institutes of Health for snoring and mild to moderate sleep apnea. Snoring is no laughing matter. Snoring can be a warning sign of a serious health problem where the airway closes during sleep and may even become life-threatening. Snoring also causes poor sleep which can result in daytime fatigue. To determine if you are a sleep appliance candidate, our office performs a complete dental history, screening exam and diagnostic tests as well as referring out to a sleep specialst (or working with yours) for a medical assessment and a sleep study when indicated. Airway sleep appliances are light and easy to wear. They fit over the upper and lower teeth. Their purpose is to move the lower jaw forward and downward, causing a positive change in the jaw and/or tongue position, which opens the airway. An appliance worn during sleep helps prevent the airway from collapsing by creating extra airway space. If you or someone you love experiences snoring or sleep problems, we can help. Ask any member of our team for more information. Indications of poor sleep
