We Offer a Solution For Sleep Apnea
Do you want to
get a good nights sleep?
An oral appliance holds the lower jaw forward and slightly open to help maintain an open airway, reducing snoring and apneas.
Oral appliances are appropriate for patients
with mild to moderate sleep apnea.
The American Academy of Sleep Medicine states that oral appliances may serve as an alternative to patients who prefer them to continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy, or who do not respond to, are not appropriate candidates for, or fail treatment attempts with CPAP. Severe apnea patients can wear CPAP in conjunction with an oral appliance making CPAP much more effective, comfortable, and tolerable.
Untreated sleep apnea may be responsible for poor performance in everyday activities where concentration is important, such as work, school, and operating a vehicle or other machinery. It may also contribute to academic underachievement in children and adolescents.
If you are concerned that sleep apnea may be affecting you, please call for a free consultation. We can bill medical insurance for these services. We are also medicare providers.
If left untreated, sleep apnea can result in a growing number of health problems including:
- High blood pressure
- Heart failure, irregular heart beats, and heart attacks
- Worsening of ADHD
