Sleep Apnea, there is so much prevalence today of patients who have sleep apnea. Many patients with sleep apnea have a CPAP machine, which is quite uncomfortable. We also have a dental solution to sleep apnea and that's with an oral sleep appliance. Essentially what it does is it helps hold the jaw forward to keep the airway open so that the apneic events are dramatically reduced. The efficiency and efficacy of the oral sleep appliances is oftentimes equal or greater than the CPAP with a lot more comfort.

What Is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a sleeping disorder that causes you to stop breathing dozens of times per night. When this happens, your body begins to panic and jerks you awake to make sure you start breathing again. Often, this cycle happens so fast you aren’t even aware you’re waking up throughout the night.
With obstructive sleep apnea, your breathing stops due to a blockage of your airway. This can deprive you of oxygen and be dangerous for your health. Our specialized team of sleep apnea professionals will help you find a sleep doctor to get diagnosed quickly. We also will work with your existing doctor to get your treatment started fast.
What Are the Symptoms of Sleep Apnea?
Here are some of the more common symptoms of sleep apnea we regularly help our patients with:
- Chronic Snoring
- Sore/Dry Throat
- Mood Swings
