Dental Sleep Medicine
Dental sleep medicine focuses on helping patients overcome breathing-related sleep disorders, such as excessive snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (or OSA, for short). When left untreated, such conditions can do more than just cause noise; they can deprive you of adequate amounts of deep, restful sleep, which can in turn have a negative impact on your overall health.
In most cases, treatment may involve a custom-designed oral appliance to maintain an open, clear airway and is worn while the patient sleeps. If you have already been diagnosed with OSA and currently rely on a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine, then a more comfortable oral appliance may be a preferable alternative.
