What is dental sleep medicine?
Dental sleep medicine focuses on helping patients treat sleep disorders, which includes snoring and obstructive sleep apnea with the use of oral appliance therapy. Oral appliance therapy is a custom fitting fabricated appliance which helps our patients get a better night’s sleep by helping keep the airway open.
What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?
Obstructive sleep apnea is when your throat muscles intermittently relax and end up blocking your airway. This causes your breathing to repeatedly stop and start while you sleep. Snoring is usually linked to obstructive sleep apnea and can be a noticeable sign. If left untreated, obstructive sleep apnea can cause serious health problems.
