Sleep Apnea Appliances: Stop Snoring!
Millions of people and their loved ones around them suffer from the adverse effects of snoring. If you snore, you are not getting the rest you should from your sleep. You may also be at risk for sleep apnea and other serious health disorders.
Fortunately we can now treat your sleep apnea and snoring with a dental Sleep Apnea appliance. These simple, low cost, pain free, proven treatments are effective the first night they’re used.
What are Sleep Apnea / Snore Guard Appliances?
These small oral appliances are used only during sleep. They prevent the jaw and tongue from dropping back into the throat and closing off the air passage. Keeping the air-way open greatly reduces snoring.
Each appliance is designed to be custom-fitted to the individual. Fitting is quick and painless and only takes a few minutes.
Sleep Apnea Surgery
Sleep Apnea is a common disorder that occurs when a person’s breathing is blocked, interrupted or stalled during sleep. In most cases, the person suffering from Sleep Apnea is unaware that their breathing is stopping during the night, as they do not prompt a complete awakening. Sleep Apnea can be a very dangerous affliction, and is known to cause death if untreated.
