Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder in which someone repeatedly stops breathing for short periods of time throughout the night. This is caused by either the throat muscles relaxing and blocking your airway or your brain not signaling to breathe. In some cases, it is a combination of both. Many people don’t realize that their dentist can provide treatment for sleep apnea. At Smiles Dental, we provide custom mouthguards to provide you with a good night’s sleep and alleviate symptoms you may be feeling throughout the day.Contact Us
There are a few tell-tale signs of sleep apnea, some of which may need to be observed by either an at-home sleep test or another person. You may be suffering from sleep apnea if you’re experiencing any of the following:
The most common mouthpiece used to treat sleep apnea is a mandibular advancement device. This specific device uses metal hinges to reposition your jaw to allow for proper airflow. Additionally, a device that retains the tongue may be used to treat less severe cases of sleep apnea. Each device is custom designed for your unique needs, and your condition will be evaluated after you’ve been wearing your mouthpiece for a period of time.
Sleep apnea therapy ranges in price depending on your method of treatment. During your initial consultation, we will create a personalized treatment plan to fit your needs and provide you with an accurate cost estimate. In addition to our regular specials, we are also running a Groupon for a $99 at-home sleep apnea study kit. For more information on our payment options, please visit our financial page.
