Sleep Apnea is a potentially serious sleep disorder where breathing repeatedly stops and starts. A few symptoms include snoring, tiredness upon waking, lack of energy, bad mood, irritability, anxiety and headaches. Consequences on personal, family and professional lives may become very serious and affect quality of life. Results can include high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes, cardiovascular problems, depression, glaucoma, road and work accidents.
We offer evaluation and treatment using a custom-made oral sleep appliance that treats snoring and Sleep Apnea. This device holds the lower jaw in a forward position and can be worn every night in total comfort. This facilitates airflow and eliminates the primary source of the snoring problem. The advancement of the jaw also prevents the obstruction responsible for sleep apnea.
