Sleep Apnea Treatment
$99 New Patient Special! Cleaning, Exam, and X-Rays
Many patients suffering from sleep apnea are under the impression that the only way to treat their condition is by using a CPAP machine and wearing a sleep mask. Yet, they are often unaware that a some dentists are trained in the use of oral appliance therapy to treat sleep apnea without the use of cumbersome machines.
Patients of Woodland Park Dentistry can request a custom fitted plastic mouth guard-like instrument that keeps the airway from being restricted. This device is custom fitted by our dentists to maximize both comfort and effectiveness. While most patients with extremely severe cases often do need to use a CPAP machine, this alternative to treating sleep apnea is preferred by patients with a mild case of sleep apnea who would like a more natural way of correcting the problem.
And, because snoring is also a problem caused by the airway’s inability to remain open during the course of the night, these mouth guards are also a great way to treat cases of severe snoring. Anyone who has struggled with other treatments for severe snoring should contact our office to see if a custom fitted device is the right course of treatment for them. Treatment for sleep apnea is only a phone call away.
