Sleep apnea is a condition that causes some of the muscles in your mouth and throat to relax while you are sleeping, in turn blocking the air flow to your lungs. 1 in 15 people Americans suffer from sleep apnea, and many are completely unaware of their condition. Common signs of the disease are snoring, acid reflux, high blood pressure and diabetes. Once you have been diagnosed, we can provide a dental device to improve your sleep and lead to higher productivity levels from day to day.
If you are diagnosed with sleep apnea, we can provide an individualized solution with a dental mouthguard device. The mandibular advancement device, the formal name for your device, looks very similar to a mouthguard worn in sports, and will gently shift your lower jaw forward so your airways are not obstructed. You will pay little to no money out of pocket for your device and we will include 3 appointments to follow up on any improvements you have noticed in your sleep pattern and daily energy levels.
