Sleep Apnea Treatment
We value the importance of getting a good night’s sleep. We realize that if you’re snoring excessively, you need help! In addition, we want to warn our patients about the risks of sleep apnea, and let our patients know that we have options available for those who have already been diagnosed with sleep apnea.
Please preregister with our office by printing out our registration paperwork and returning it to our office prior to your scheduled appointment if time permits. The paperwork can be returned to us via email, mail, or fax. Should you have previous records you would like to forward to us, please contact your former dental office to authorize the release of records.

Sleep Apnea Appliance Therapy
Many individuals do not realize the importance of dental sleep apnea treatment for their snoring problems. Sleep apnea is a more serious condition than common snoring. Snoring stems from a partial blockage of the airway, whereas sleep apnea stems from a complete blockage of the airway while you sleep. This complete blockage of the airway causes a deprivation of oxygen, thereby leading to a number of health risks.
