Wear a Sleep Appliance and Snore No More
Suffer from morning headaches?
Do you have frequent morning headaches? Are you excessively sleepy during the daytime? Has your partner ever told you you gasp for air during sleep? If you've answered yes to these questions you should be evaluated by your doctor for possible sleep apnea which can be a serious disorder.
Custom Sleep Apnea Mouth Guard
Oral mouth guards (appliances) for sleep apnea are often used as an alternate to surgery or a CPAP machine. There are a few options when looking for a custom sleep apnea mouth guard to alleviate chronic snoring and mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). The quality and quantity of your sleep could be greatly improved just by changing the position of your bite. It is important to have a professional help you find the right treatment for your specific needs. Follow up visits are necessary to insure the sleep appliance is working for you. While there are many devices sold over the internet, the fit would not be custom, are not effective and may make new problems for your teeth, mouth or jaw. When you come in for your appointment to discuss your options for a sleep apnea mouth guard, you will fill out a questionnaire so that we can fit you with the right solution. Are you ready for a better nights sleep?
