Sleep Apnea Treatment
Dental appliances are an effective alternative to treatment for the use of CPAP if you snore, have a case of mild or moderate sleep apnea or have suspended treatment with CPAP because of difficulty of use.
Dental appliances often result in a reduction of snoring, reducing daytime sleepiness, improving work performance and improving the sleep quality for both the patient and bed partner. Dental appliances have been shown to reduce snoring frequency and intensity and reduce the frequency of apnea episodes during the night.
Sleep apnea dental appliances can also have the adjunctive effect of acting as an occlusal guidance appliance which is a commonly used appliance for reducing grinding and clenching, relieving, reducing or in many cases eliminate headaches.
Call the office for a complimentary consultation regarding dental appliances as they relate to snoring, sleep apnea, grinding, clenching, headaches or general facial discomfort.
