Increase Sleep. Lower Risk.
Are you struggling to find energy throughout the day? Do you wake up feeling tired and unrested? Obstructive sleep apnea is a common condition, especially among men, that can sometimes go undiagnosed, as it occurs during sleep. Along with daytime fatigue, sleep apnea can have other symptoms, in addition to being a serious medical condition. If you think you may be suffering from sleep apnea, we encourage you to visit our office for a consultation. Properly treating sleep apnea not only helps you receive the restful sleep you need to function during the day, but can lower the risk for more serious health conditions from developing.

The Consequences of Sleep Apnea
Obstructive sleep apnea is a condition characterized by routine pauses in breathing during sleep. When the jaw relaxes, it collapses and causes airways to become obstructed. This does not let oxygen pass through and breathing is pauses. Many times, people who notice their partner is snoring, also notice the sleeper wakes gasping for breath as well. If left untreated, sleep apnea can lead to poor performance at work, chronic fatigue, and has been linked to more serious health conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes.
Conquer Sleeplessness with Innovative Solutions
Though the most common treatment option for sleep apnea is the CPAP machine, most patients discover that it is invasive and bulky. For patients who are CPAP intolerant, we offer different types of oral appliances. These mouth guards are made of the highest quality and are custom-fit to your mouth. Oral appliances help keep the lower jaw in a forward position during sleep to help keep airways open, minimizing snoring and pauses in breathing. Many patients find that these mouth guards are more comfortable, less invasive, minimize snoring, and help improve their sleep.
Sleep Restfully, Wake Rested
When sleep apnea is treated correctly, patients can experience great improvements on their quality of sleep, the restfulness they feel upon waking, and increased energy throughout the day. We take a conservative approach to your treatment, especially for those who know they are CPAP intolerant. With custom treatment, you can enjoy both a rested sleep and an energized day!
