Sleep Appliances & Therapy
If you have breathing issues such as sleep apnea or snoring during sleep, sleep appliances or sleep therapy may be the right solution for you. Sleep apnea is a serious condition where a person's breathing repeatedly stops and starts during sleep, which can lead to a range of health problems including high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke.
Sleep appliances are designed to be worn during sleep, and work by repositioning the jaw and tongue to keep the airway open, which can help prevent snoring and reduce the severity of sleep apnea. If a sleep appliance is right for you, we'll have the device custom-made to fit your mouth and teach you how to use it.
In addition to sleep appliances, sleep therapy may also be recommended for patients with sleep apnea. This therapy typically involves the use of a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine, which delivers a constant flow of air through a mask worn over the nose or mouth during sleep. This helps to keep the airway open and prevents pauses in breathing.
Sleep appliances and therapy can provide significant benefits for patients with sleep-related breathing disorders. By improving the quality of sleep and reducing the risk of health complications associated with sleep apnea, these treatments can help you feel more rested, improve your overall health and wellbeing, and enhance your quality of life.
