General Dentistry: Snoring/Sleep Apnea Appliances


M

any patients suffer from sleep apnea, a dangerous medical condition in which the patient stops breathing numerous times during their sleep. This puts a significant stress on your heart, causing oxygen deprivation and chronic fatigue. Although a CPAP machine is still the best treatment for this condition, many patients simply cannot tolerate the device. In those instances we can construct a mandibular repositioning device to improve on and alleviate the problem. In most cases we will also work closely together with a sleep medicine doctor to ensure we are treating your problem in the best way possible. For cases of snoring without apnea we can also make an appliance that will reposition your mandible to prevent/reduce snoring.
