Dental Sleep Apnea/Snoring Solution

It's estimated that between 20 - 30 million Americans have sleep apnea, a serious sleep disorder which is caused by a blockage of the airway. If left untreated, sleep apnea could result in serious health risks, including stroke, heart attack, diabetes, high blood pressure, etc. You may have seen a device, called “CPAP” (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) to treat sleep apnea. CPAP has been proven effective if the patient keeps using the device. Unfortunately, some people don't like having to wear the headgear with a mask attached to their face throughout the night. Now, there is a dental sleep apnea and snoring solution, an alternative to CPAP. This oral appliance works by moving the lower jaw slightly forward, which keeps the airway open. Two of the main benefits of this oral appliance are as follows: 1. You don't have to wear that headgear; and 2. You don't need to have an air pump to push air though the nose. This oral appliance is for people with mild to moderate sleep apnea and/or snoring. Please contact our office if you have any questions about this new dental sleep apnea
