If you snore, know someone that snores or struggle with CPAP, our doctors can help you with dental sleep apnea treatment. There are two types of patients we typically treat for obstructive sleep apnea.
Patients Struggling with CPAP – CPAP is very effective in treating sleep apnea, however compliance has always been the issue. You may be a candidate for a dental sleep apnea appliance that can be used as an alternative to CPAP. Patients That Snore – While some patients have already been diagnosed with sleep apnea, others that snore may not know they have OSA. We recommend a sleep study to determine whether or not you have Obstructive Sleep Apnea and treat accordingly.
Signs You May Have Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Falling asleep during the day
Always feeling tired
Waking from sleep with a gasping or choking sound
Falling asleep while driving
Dry mouth or sore throat when you wake up
Have trouble concentrating
