Sleep Apnea


Sleep Apnea affects the overall health of many patients. The inability to breath properly during sleep has been associated with Cardiovascular Disease, which can be life threatening. Many people use a CPAP, Continuous positive airway pressure, unit to deliver positive pressure oxygen to decrease the affects of Sleep Apnea. This is a particular type of ventilation (breathing) therapy.

There are many people who do not like, and therefore can't use, the CPAP units due to the cumbersome nature of the device as well as retricted movement during sleep.

There are dental alternatives to help prevent Sleep Apnea. Sleep Apnea dental appliances are well tollerated by most patients and can be used as an alternative to throat surgery involving the restructuring the soft palate and uvula.

Please advise our office if you have been diagnosed and suffer from Sleep Apnea and you can't tolerate a CPAP apparatus. We can help you with other alternatives that have been proven to very effective.
