Enjoy Peaceful & Uninterrupted Sleep
Snoring and sleep apnea can cause severe disruption of healthful sleep and leave you exhausted during the day. If they are left untreated, these disorders can seriously impact your health and well-being.
Treatment for Sleep Disorders
Diagnosis of sleep disorders begins with determining the underlying cause of snoring or apnea. Your dentist will examine your mouth, neck, and airway and discuss your sleep habits and general state of health. Treatments include sleep counseling, orthodontic or orthopedic devices to reposition your jaws, or a CPAP device. Reducing risk factors such as obesity, stress, and smoking can also reduce symptoms.Book Now
