Most people know snoring is a very common problem which can lead to many restless nights of the bed partner of a snorer. However, fewer people know that snoring is often a sign of a very serious condition called Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). Sleep Apnea is a condition which your airway becomes blocked while you are sleeping causing you to stop breathing. While suffering these beathless episodes, your body is starved of oxygen which has negative effects on all aspects of your health.

Find out if you or a loved one are suffering from Sleep Apnea with a consultation with your physician and a sleep study.

We can help treat this condition with oral appliance therapy if you have trouble with or cannot wear a CPAP mask while sleeping.

Treating Sleep Apnea and Snoring with Oral Appliance Therapy

Our goal in treating Sleep Apnea is keeping your airway open. The most common cause of an airway blockage is the tongue being crowded backwards. With Oral Appliance Therapy, we can position your lower jaw forward giving your tongue the space it needs keeping your airway open.
