Sleep Apnea Treatment
Custom-fitted oral appliances, or mouth guards, are an effective way to manage sleep apnea and improve your quality of life. They are worn during the night and work by repositioning the jaw and tongue to keep the airway open and prevent it from becoming blocked during sleep.
Our team will work with you to determine the best type of appliance for your needs and will make sure it fits comfortably in your mouth. Don’t let sleep apnea control your life — book an appointment today to get your sleep back!
