Healthier sleep is just around the corner.
Oral appliance therapy. A comfortable CPAP alternative.
With a carefully calibrated oral appliance to help position your jaw in the right location you can maintain an open airway throughout the entire night. This allows you to breathe like you do during the day, which will keep your blood oxygen levels in a healthy range and give you a healthier and more fulfilling sleep. Oral appliances are generally more tolerable than CPAP systems as well, making it much easier to stick your therapy plan.
Simple, healthy treatment.
The American Academy of Sleep Medicine recommends oral appliances as a primary therapy for the treatment of mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea and for patients with severe sleep apnea who can't tolerate CPAP treatment. Sleep disorders are evaluated by our team, and with the help of a sleep physician, diagnosed and treated restoring your sleep to its full, therapeutic value.
More than just an annoyance to your loved ones, snoring can be a sign of more severe health problems. Our team can check for signs of irritation in your mouth and throat from sleeping with your mouth open. If we feel there is enough snoring evidence, we may refer you to a sleep specialist for a sleep study to rule out sleep apnea. Once you receive your results we can help you select and customize a sleep appliance for your specific needs so you can start getting a quiet, healthy night's sleep.
