Sleep Apnea Treatment
If you have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), you will benefit from treatment.
What is Sleep Apnea Treatment?
Sleep apnea is a serious sleep-related disorder that affects your breathing throughout the night. Sleep apnea can cause loud snoring and short cessations in breathing, causing you to wake up while trying to get a full night of sleep. Sleep apnea treatment is available for those who want a simpler and more comfortable alternative to a CPAP machine. We offer appliances that are worn similarly to a mouth guard that help to keep the upper airway open.
Why would Sleep Apnea Treatment be needed?
If you have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), you will benefit from treatment. Unfortunately, many patients don’t follow through with treatment because they may assume that the only way to treat the condition is with a large and bulky CPAP machine. Thankfully, technology has come a long way and now an oral device is available to help treat the disorder. These appliances are easy to wear and can help to treat the actual condition.

Who’s a good candidate for Sleep Apnea Treatment?
By having a sleep test done, we can determine if you have sleep apnea. If you have obstructive sleep apnea, we may recommend treatment using a simple oral device. These devices are made just for you so that they’re comfortable and custom fit. They are effective at keeping the airway open so that you can sleep comfortably throughout the night.
What happens during Sleep Apnea Treatment?
You will first come in for testing regarding your sleep apnea. We will then take impressions and have a brand new device made that you’ll wear throughout the night. The only way that these devices are effective is if they’re actually worn. If the appliance begins to show signs of wear, you can have a new one made as needed. When worn correctly, the device helps to open the upper airway so that you can breathe easier throughout the night. Many patients who’ve used CPAP machines in the past claim that dental appliances are easier and more comfortable to wear.
