Common Symptoms of Sleep Apnea
Cessations in breathing
Custom Sleep Apnea Treatment
SomnoDent Oral Appliance
Our custom oral appliances help to keep your airways unobstructed while you sleep. This mouthguard keeps your lower jaw in a forward position so the tongue cannot collapse backward into the throat during sleep. Many patients, especially those who are CPAP intolerant, find that consistent use of this appliance dramatically reduces snoring and breathing issues during sleep.
More severe cases of obstructive sleep apnea may require surgical intervention to resolve symptoms. Orthognathic jaw surgery moves the lower and/or upper jaws and connected tissue forward to widen the throat and upper airway. Jaw surgery effectively treats functional issues associated with sleep apnea and can improve facial aesthetics.
