Sleep Apnea & Snoring Treatment

Do You Find Yourself Falling Asleep on the Job?

Snoring, breaks in breathing while sleeping, and excessive exhaustion during the day are all signs that you or a loved one may suffer from sleep apnea. Apnea conditions vary in severity but may pose a threat to your overall health. Sleep Disorder Dentist Traverse City MI

The most common treatment for sleep apnea involves the CPAP device. This machine pumps a continuous stream of air into the patient’s nose or mouth throughout the night via a mask connected by hoses.

Unfortunately, most people find the CPAP to be extremely uncomfortable, so they stop using the device, continuing to suffer with the effects of their breathing problem. If you have sleep apnea and can’t tolerate or are frustrated with your CPAP, we offer treatment using the latest advances in modern dentistry.

Oral appliances are small acrylic devices that fit over the upper and lower teeth similar to an orthodontic retainer or mouthguard. They gently realign your tongue and jaw to open your airway and allow more air to move into your lungs as you sleep. They are easy to place and remove, easy to clean, and convenient for travel. These have been successful for over 90% of the patients who use them and are an alternative to CPAP machines. If you snore or a physician has diagnosed you with sleep apnea, give us a call today.

Snoring and sleep apnea don’t have to fill your nights. Call (231) 935-4872 for a no-cost/no-obligation consultation.
