Your Dentist Can Help
Obstructive sleep apnea is when you stop breathing, gasp for air, or choke during your sleep. You may not realize that you suffer from sleep apnea if you have a mild form of it. However, if you often feel very tired during the day despite the fact that you were in bed for the required 7 to 8 hours, chances are that you have sleep apnea. Consult your doctor to get a firm diagnosis and talk about your options.
If you suffer from mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea, and you do not want, or cannot use, a CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) device, our specialists can help you.
We’re not angry, but a mouth device called M.A.D. (Mandibular Advancement Device) can be adjusted to help you with your sleep apnea. Similar to a sports mouth guard, it clips to your upper and lower dental arches and can be adjusted to your special needs. Call us for a consultation and to get more information.
