Sleep Apnea Treatment
Because we always use a complete dentistry approach, keeping an eye on your entire wellbeing, we analyze everything from your teeth to the way you breathe. If we notice any indicators of sleep apnea, or if it is part of your medical history, we will talk to you about the possibility that you might be suffering from sleep apnea. Don’t be surprised! We start with a CT scan to take a look at your anatomy and see if anything points to an apnea problem. We also send you home with a sleep monitor so we can check out what your sleep patterns are like. While we can’t diagnose sleep apnea in dentistry, we will work closely with your own MD or one we recommend to get you the recommended full sleep study, if needed. If you are diagnosed with sleep apnea, and you don’t want to wear a CPAP, we can help with that too. Our oral appliances are compact, comfortable, and work like a charm for mild to moderate sleep apnea.
