You know, personally, I have sleep disordered breathing. So it led me to look into solutions for myself. And what we discovered was that there are many appliances that can help move the lower jaw forward which opens up the airway, over here (gestures to his throat area). So it's an upper and lower appliance that you put in at night. If people snore, it helps eliminate snoring, and for some people who have sleep apnea, it can treat mild or moderate sleep apnea. It's FDA approved. If you have apnea you need to go to a physician and get a prescription for it because as a dentist it's not something that I'm necessarily treating, I'm only making the appliance. But if you have snoring it's something that we do not need a prescription for.

At Restorative and Implant Dentistry, we work with patients to help them find a way to control their sleep apnea symptoms and get the good night’s sleep they desperately need.

Do You Suffer from Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea makes sleeping soundly throughout the night difficult. If you think you have sleep apnea, you should have a sleep test done by your doctor. This way, you can have your treatment at Restorative and Implant Dentistry covered by your insurance. All you have to do is get a referral, and we take care of the rest. If you are just looking to get a snoring appliance, there is no referral needed.
Sleep apnea is potentially life threatening, so seek treatment from a practice that has the solutions you need.
Sleep Apnea Treatment
Once you have your medical referral, we can conduct a Mallampati test. This measures the size of your airway by determining how much blockage is visible. From there, we can fit you with a custom oral appliance that will gently push your lower jaw out. This will allow your airway to stay open throughout the night so you can sleep peacefully.
