Snoring, sleep disordered breathing and sleep apnea can wreak havoc on your life. Not only does sleep apnea make it difficult for you to sleep each night, it also increases your risk of health problems like obesity, cardiovascular disease and even gum disease. Your loved ones struggle with it just as much, because of the tossing and turning all night long. What would you say if you could easily stop your sleep apnea problems and get a better night’s rest for you and your family in just one trip to the dental office?

A Non-Invasive Approach to Sleep Therapy

You might be surprised to hear it, but battling your sleep apnea is as simple as visiting Marconi Dental Group. We work with your sleep physician to pinpoint the root cause of your sleep apnea. For some people, the condition is caused by a collapse of the soft tissues in the back of the throat. The tongue and soft palate create a seal against the back of the mouth, blocking 100% of the oxygen flow. This then causes you to wake up frequently throughout the night in order to breath. Thankfully, we have a way to help you stop this from happening without the need for invasive, loud CPAP machines.

How Oral Sleep Appliances Work

Oral sleep appliances use a technique that is necessary during rescue breathing measures used for CPR. That is, the lower jaw is brought slightly forward in order to separate the soft tissues in the back of the mouth and thus opening the airway. When we create an oral sleep appliance, it fits snuggly over your teeth and guides the lower jaw forward in a similar manner. This prevents any blockage to the airway and allows naturally increased oxygen flow when you go to sleep at night.

See Results the Very First Night

It’s true – many of our patients begin seeing results from their oral sleep appliance from the very first night. Some people are even able to eliminate equipment like their CPAP machines. With an oral sleep appliance you enjoy naturally deeper sleep from the very first use. Feel free to rest in any position that you like, because there are no invasive tubes or masks to wear during the process. Enjoy the liberty that a good night of sleep can give you!

Get Started Today

Marconi Dental Group can work directly with your sleep physician to determine which type of sleep apnea therapy is most appropriate for your needs. If an oral sleep appliance is what is recommended, all we need to get started is an impression of your teeth.

Some patients will need to have a sleep study completed if they have never had one before. Dr. Alizadeh is happy to walk you through the process and let you know what to expect, if this is the case. Are you ready to find out more? Call Marconi Dental Group today to set up your hassle-free sleep apnea consultation.
