Once you receive a diagnosis of sleep apnea, you need to explore treatment options. While continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is a preferred treatment, many patients have difficulty acclimating to the mask, hose, and blowing air that keeps soft tissues from collapsing into the airway. Your dentist offers an alternative to CPAP. Our patients in Victor, NY, and the surrounding areas are enjoying successful sleep apnea treatment with dental appliances.
We will create an appliance, customized for you, that encourages your jaw to move forward so your palate and soft tissues don’t block your airway. The appliance is similar to a sports mouthguard or a mouthpiece used to stop teeth grinding. It’s easy to get used to and doesn’t cause the stress and frustration of CPAP.
