Sleep Apnoea

If you are seeking an alternative to CPAP therapy, you may find that oral appliance therapy works well and is easier to get used to. Oral appliance therapy uses a specially designed dental splint that gently opens your airway at the back of your through, making breathing easier. 

Treating sleep apnea is important because it can affect your overall health, including your heart.

Snoring can cause moody mornings and make everyone grumpy! If you or your partner snores, it is important to have an evaluation because snoring is often a sign of a serious medical condition called obstructive sleep apnea. Sleep apnea can lead to serious health conditions such as heart disease and mood disorders, in addition to preventing your partner from sleeping well and placing a strain on intimacy.

We can provide you with a comfortable, custom nightguard designed to open up your airway while you sleep. More oxygen is allowed to enter the bloodstream, improving your health, and both you and your significant other will rest easier.
