Sleep Apnea Dentist
Millions of people suffer from sleep apnea—a condition in which the position of the structures of the mouth obstruct air flow during sleep, causing the patient to snore and, at times, to stop breathing for up to a minute or more at a time. Obviously, this affects the quality of your sleep, and if left untreated, sleep apnea can be very dangerous.
The Tooth Doc dental team can help you overcome sleep apnea. After a sleep study is completed, treatment may include the use of a customized mouthpiece, which comfortably repositions the structures of the mouth, allowing for clear breathing and uninterrupted sleep.
This removable device is worn while you sleep to protect your teeth from the damage of grinding and clenching.
