Sleep Better & Feel Better
With an oral device made just for you, we can eliminate the symptoms of sleep apnea, help you feel better, and let you enjoy a better quality of life. If you need a diagnosis for your sleep problems, then we can help you arrange for a sleep study in a hospital setting or order an at-home sleep test.
Our custom oral appliance will fit comfortably in your mouth, moving your lower jaw slightly forward to help keep your airway open. You’ll sleep more soundly, feel rested throughout the day, and lessen your risk of heart attacks, strokes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes – all of which have been linked to sleep apnea.
Plus, you’ll snore less since snoring is caused by air moving across the soft tissues in your throat. You and your bed partner will both enjoy a quieter, more restful night of sleep.
Find Out About Sleep Apnea
Sleep apnea occurs when your airway becomes temporarily blocked while you’re sleeping. The tongue and other soft tissues in the back of your throat can relax to the point that they obstruct your airflow, causing you to stop breathing.
When this happens, your brain will cause your body to wake up and take in more air. Afterward, you’ll drift off to sleep again until the next episode of sleep apnea occurs. This cycle can repeat itself hundreds of times per night for sufferers of severe sleep apnea!
