Sleep Apnea - Snoring and TMJ Therapy
Sleep Apnea and Snoring
Sleep Apnea is a treatable disorder in which a person stops breathing during sleep, often hundreds of times during the night.
Sleep Apnea is a common disorder that affects millions of men, women and children but is often undiagnosed, despite the potentially serious consequences of the disorder. It is estimated that at least 10 million Americans have have unrecognized sleep apnea.
Oral appliance therapy is one of several non-surgical treatments for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. Oral appliances can be an effective treatment in some patients with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea and is often associated with greater patient satisfaction than nasal continuous positive airway pressure (nCPAP).
