Do You Get Enough Sleep?

According to recent studies conducted by researchers at the National Sleep Foundation, more than 40 million people in the US suffer from sleep disorders, and more than 20 million of these US adults suffer from sleep apnea.

Nearly 80% of all cases are undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. Insomnia is the most common sleep disorder, but obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is rapidly closing in.

Untreated sleep problems contribute to serious concerns like drowsy driving and workplace accidents, as well as a host of associated health problems such as heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, and diabetes, just to name a few.

Oral Appliance TherapyThe Alternative to CPAP Therapy

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) Treatment

While many patients we treat believe that a CPAP system is the only therapy option for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine agrees that oral appliance therapy can be an effective option for patients suffering from OSA.  This is great news for those who are deemed CPAP-intolerant.

Oral appliances fit over your teeth like a mouth guard or retainer while you sleep and support your jaw in a forward position to keep your airway open. Custom-fit oral appliances offer maximum comfort, which increases patient compliance. They can also help improve your sleep, restore your alertness, and revitalize your overall health.

Oral Appliance DevicesThat we Highly Recommend for our patients

Prosomnus EVO

ProSomnus EVO is the first Oral Appliance Therapy device to incorporate advanced materials, manufacturing robotics and artificial intelligence to advance the treatment of OSA.

Dynaflex EMA

The Elastic Mandibular Advancement (EMA) appliance is the smallest of our obstruction sleep apnea appliances. The individual trays are constructed of 2mm vacuum form material and are held together with straps of varying lengths and flexibility. These straps provide unsurpassed lateral movement and comfort as well as dictating the amount of mandibular advancement. These straps are positioned between the teeth and cheek leaving the palate free from obstruction.
