What is sleep apnea?

  • Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts during sleep.
  • Snoring is a symptom of sleep apnea.
  • Nearly half of all adults snore.
  • Sleep apnea affects your sleep, health and quality of life.
  • It is linked to hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and work and driving related accidents.
  • OSA can have a significant impact on your quality of life, placing unnecessary strain on relationships between bed partners, family, and in the workplace.

What are the benefits of snoring/sleep apnea mouth guard oral appliances?

    • Oral appliances are an effective, non-invasive treatment choice that fit easily into your lifestyle.
    • Our patients choose oral appliance therapy because it is:
      • Comfortable
      • Easy to wear
      • Quiet
      • Portable
      • Convenient for travel
      • Easy to care for

The procedure

  • A custom impression of your upper and lower jaw is taken.
  • Careful bite analysis is done and bite records are taken.
  • The impression is used to create your custom sleep appliance.
  • Patients will wear their sleep appliance to bed every night and in most cases see dramatic improvements in their sleep patterns as well as a significant decrease in snoring.
