Sleep Apnea Appliance
Sleep Apnea (or sleep Apnoea) is a common condition in society that can lead to significant medical complications. As such it is best that Sleep Apnea is detected early and correctly managed.
Treatments may include the use of a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure machine (CPAP), worn at night. Or the use of a dental appliance to keep the lower jaw posture forward whilst asleep. This increases airway volume in the upper throat and helps to reduce Sleep Apnea and snoring. Many patients find the Sleep Apnea appliance comfortable and have found significant improvement in sleeping habits.
For those patients who cannot wear the CPAP Machine, the next best course of treatment is dental Sleep Apnea appliances. Working in conjunction with your physician, we will assist to find the right solution for your situation. All it takes is two visits to make moulds, then insert and calibrate the appliance to the mouth.
