Sleep apnea occurs when patients stop breathing during sleep, jarring them awake—sometimes only for a few seconds— and causing loss of sleep. Sleep appliances are proven to be extremely effective in treating mild to moderate sleep apnea. This sleep apnea treatment is worn while the patient is asleep and prevents the air passage from becoming blocked.
Receiving sleep apnea treatment will enhance your sleep and the sleep of those around you. Those who choose sleep appliances will benefit from improved alertness and health because they are getting more sleep at night.
Tailored for You
Sleep apnea appliances are custom-made for you. At Synergy Dental Group, we will not need to recommend you to an outside dentist before you can start getting more sleep. We have the technology and experience to create these oral appliances for you right in our office.
We will first complete a detailed examination. During this examination, we will evaluate your tongue, teeth, airway, and jaw position. This information will allow us to start work on a sleep apnea treatment that is perfect for you.
How Sleep Apnea Appliances Work
Once your custom-made appliance is complete, you will wear the appliance only during sleep. Place the appliance into your mouth as if it is a retainer or mouth guard. This sleep apnea treatment will keep the jaw in a forward position and prevent the tongue from falling backward in the mouth. This position will maximize the space in your airway and allow you to breathe more easily. With our sleep appliance, you will experience fewer disturbances throughout the night, and so will those around you.
