Sleep safe and sound with a little help from your dentist!
Obstructive sleep apnea is a highly prevalent condition and is characterized by frequent pauses of breathing during sleep. Sleep apnea is a serious problem and can lead to problems such as cardiovascular disease, cognitive impairment and motor vehicle accidents. The first line of treatment for Sleep Apnea is CPAP, however other options exists. Mild to moderate cases can be treated with an Oral appliance. Oral appliances move your jaw forward and open your airway while you sleep. Oral appliance therapy has been shown to be quite effective in treating sleep apnea. They can also help people who have severe obstruction and cannot tolerate CPAP, even in severe cases Oral appliance therapy can be effective in reducing apnea events.

Your family physician will need to make the diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea. Based on his/her recommendations, your dentist can then make a custom fitting appliance that will move your jaw and tongue forward to keep the airway open.

At Aberdeen Dental we will make you a custom fit appliance; we will ensure the appliance is working and that you are sleeping comfortably.

For many patients, this discreet, comfortable therapy provides relief from OSA.
