Sleep Apnea

Dentists can treat sleep apnea by creating custom oral appliances called mandibular advancement devices (MADs). MADs are custom-made mouthguards that fit over your teeth. They are designed to reposition your jaw and soft tissues in your mouth and throat while you sleep to keep your airway open. This allows for more airflow in the back of your throat and prevents soft tissues like your tongue, soft palate, and tonsils from blocking your airway. 

Treating Sleep Apnea With Dental Devices | Family Dentist ...

During a consultation, our dentist will evaluate your teeth, gums, and medical history to ensure your jaw and teeth are healthy enough to wear the appliance. At our office we scan our patients and reduce the stress of traditional putty impression to create a custom MAD that fits properly. Our dentist can also adjust the fit and position of the MADs to increase comfort and effectiveness.  Call today and make an appointment for a consult,you will be one step closer to a better and healthtier sleep with no snoring or sleep disruption.
