To Help You Achieve The Goal Of Exceptional Dental
Health And Wellness.
Sleep apnea is a very common disorder in which your breathing pauses or becomes unhealthily shallow while you sleep. Sleep apnea sufferers frequently snore and make loud choking or gasping sounds all night. Many patients who suffer from sleep apnea are not aware they have sleep apnea, but they are aware of the symptoms.
The most common way to identify an accurate sleep apnea diagnosis is with a sleep study. It is essential because not everyone who snores has sleep apnea.
Based on the results of your sleep study we will work with you to ensure you receive the proper treatment for your Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) to help you achieve a better night’s sleep and improve your quality of life.

While CPAP machines can be highly effective, they are cumbersome and uncomfortable, which lowers compliance rates. Custom oral appliances are an effective, comfortable way to treat patients who have mild to moderate Sleep Apnea.
