Sleep Apnea
 

       Snoring and sleep apnea result from collapse of the breathing passages during sleep which can result in dangerous drops in oxygen and sleep deprivation.  Untreated sleep apnea is associated with many serious medical conditions.

       Oral appliances are used to help maintain the airway to allow proper breathing during sleep.  Oral appliances function very well for many people with mild or moderate apnea who have trouble using a CPAP machine and in many cases, can replace the machine entirely.  Oral appliance therapy can also help people with severe apnea by using the appliance alone or in combination with their CPAP machine.  Oral appliances has been shown to be effective in managing snoring and sleep apnea with over 20 years of research.
