Sleep apnea is generally defined as interrupted breathing when you sleep and it has serious health implications.
Sleep apnea is a common sleep disorder suffered by millions in American. The effects can range from short term irritability due to uneasy sleep to serious health problems such as heart failure and in some extreme cases, death.
We can treat sleep apnea non-surgically with a specially designed mouth guard that maintains the jaw in the proper position to keep the airway open while you sleep. In the past, the only treatments for sleep apnea were surgery or CPAP machine. This machine forced air into the airway through a covering that fit over the nose and mouth. Many people try and quit using the CPAP machine because it is loud, uncomfortable and bulky. A custom designed mouthguard offers all the same benefits with none of the objections and requires no surgery.
If you are interested in treatments for sleep apnea, please contact us today for a consultation.
