Dental Treatment For Sleep Apnea
Let Dr. Carol Jin, DDS help you with dental treatments for sleep apnea at our San Ramon, CA, office. If you find yourself not tolerating the CPAP, a custom-made sleep apnea mouthguard could be the solution you’re looking for.
Sleep apnea is a serious disorder marked by interruptions in your breathing during sleep. When untreated, you may stop breathing many times during the night, which can lead to snoring, gasping, and other symptoms.
A CPAP is often the first choice of treatment for sleep apnea. However, many patients don’t tolerate or maintain compliance with uncomfortable CPAP devices.
Mouthguards – The CPAP Alternative
Many people turn to dental appliances for sleep apnea. This oral appliance therapy involves a custom-fit mouthguard you wear as your sleep. These mouthguards for sleep apnea are a comfortable and practical option for those unable to use a CPAP.
How It Works
Our sleep apnea dentist will create a custom-fitted mouthguard for you. This personalized oral appliance will help to keep your airway open and/or push your lower jaw forward while you sleep, reducing or eliminating snoring and apnea episodes.
6 Benefits Of Oral Appliances For Sleep Apnea
