Types of Treatments and Appliances
Nighttime Mouth Guard
A night guard is a plastic appliance that not only protects your teeth from grinding but also aligns your jaw and consequently relaxes your facial muscles, releases pain, reduces headaches, and opens airways. All these benefits happen while you sleep.
Some sleep apnea conditions are caused by imperfect jaw arches; a solution for which can be the application of Invisalign® clear teeth aligners. Whilst having straighter teeth may not cure sleep apnea or snoring, it may help alleviate obstructed breathing and help you get a better night’s sleep, enabling you to feel more energetic during the day.
Nightlase® is a state-of-the-art, non-invasive, and simple procedure for improving the quality of sleep of an individual. The treatment is a trademarked, fast, non-surgical, technique using Fotona Laser’s LightWalker Laser to increase the quality of a person’s sleep.
During your FREE consultation, our team can help point you toward the applicant that will best help you find relief from your sleep apnea symptoms.
How Do You Determine if I Have Sleep Apnea?
Your first visit to our office is important to us. Our main concern is that you are able to treat your sleep apnea or snoring as effectively as possible. That means the first step we take is examining and screening for sleep apnea.
Your official diagnosis must come from a physician, but our dentists often work closely with sleep physicians helping patients get a sleep study. Many times, the recommended treatments we offer also have oral and dental health benefits that can simultaneously address diagnosed dental conditions.
We can look at the results of your sleep study (if you had one), take some measurements, look at your teeth and gums, and ask you a series of questions about your health, lifestyle, and sleep patterns.
Personalized Sleep Apnea Treatment for the Best Possible Results
Once you are evaluated and diagnosed, we can help you receive more information on other apnea and snore solutions and treatments. Our goal is to have you leave our office with a better understanding of sleep apnea and help you choose the right treatment for your personal life.
Will I Need an Oral Surgeon?
After our initial consultation, we will be able to better paint you a clear picture of what you can expect from your sleep apnea challenge. If your case requires an oral surgeon, we will walk you through those choices and why they would be beneficial for your oral and sleep health.
Do I Need To Treat My Sleep Apnea?
It is important to get your sleep apnea diagnosed. If left untreated, sleep apnea can result in more than just chronic snoring. In fact, when the condition is untreated, it can significantly impact your overall health and quality of life. Here, we list five potential complications of obstructive sleep apnea.
