Snoring & Sleep Apnea
Snoring and sleep apnea can disrupt your sleep and more importantly impact your overall health. Caused by a narrowing or blocking of the airway, snoring can cause fatigue, difficulty concentrating or headaches.
Sleep apnea is a disorder in which a patient experiences one or more pauses in breathing or shallow breaths during sleep. The sleep disruption caused by sleep apnea can negatively impact your quality of sleep, leaving you tired and irritable.
Oral Appliance Therapy
Many patients that suffer from either sleep apnea or snoring may be able to find relief using a custom removable oral Appliance which adjusts the position of the lower jaw and tongue during sleep. Our office can create a personalized Mandibular Advancement Device for you to wear during sleep in order to maintain an open, unobstructed airway when worn while sleeping. Please be sure to bring your oral appliance in to your appointments to make sure it is fitting properly.
