HOW A DENTIST CAN HELP YOU SLEEP
Holistic treatment focuses on whole-body health. That means we won’t give you a sleep treatment that solves your sleep issues at the cost of another aspect of your life. Our sleep solutions can elevate your daily life in more than one way.
Identifying the problem
Suggesting a sleep study to diagnose the issue further
Evaluating the results of the sleep study
Suggesting treatment options to cure the problem
Performing surgery to treat the disorder
Dental interventions help you get your life and health back on track. They also decrease your chances of acquiring chronic diseases and suffering from the symptoms of sleep disorders.
MANDIBULAR/ORAL APPLIANCE TREATMENT
Oral appliances have become an increasingly popular treatment for sleep apnea. These custom-created mouthpieces can help you breathe at night by keeping your airway open. They do this by pushing your lower jaw forward slightly, enough to keep your airway from closing but not so much that it’ll be uncomfortable.
Most of the time, oral appliances are just as effective as CPAP. In addition, these small, portable mouthpieces are much easier to use, making them a popular choice among patients.
POTENTIALLY PERMANENT CHANGES FOR SLEEP TREATMENT
In addition to oral appliances, our experts can offer a life-changing treatment. We can use 3D expansion to permanently change the structure of your mouth and throat to correct sleep apnea issues. These changes mean you may eventually be able to sleep peacefully at night without the need for CPAP or an oral appliance. This freedom is unmatched by other sleep apnea treatment methods, as they require you to continue treatment every night.
