Sleep apnea affects more patients than you would think, but many patients avoid treatment because they don't want to wear CPAP mask.

This will allow you to breathe on your own and return to a healthy night of sleep.

Get Professional Help For Your Sleep Problems
If it seems like you have symptoms of sleep apnea, we’ll refer you to a professional sleep center so that you can receive an accurate diagnosis of your condition. If it turns out that you are suffering from sleep apnea, then we can make a professional dental device to treat your symptoms.
Our sleep apnea appliance will fit comfortably in your mouth and move your lower jaw forward slightly to keep your airway open. Rather than having to deal with a bulky, noisy CPAP machine, this device will allow you to breathe on your own.
You’ll wake up in the morning feeling better and more refreshed, plus you’ll snore less since your airway will be kept free and clear. You and your bed partner may both thank Dr. Thomas for her help!
Know More About This Dangerous Condition
Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when your tongue and other soft tissues in your throat relax during sleep. Although this relaxation is normal, if these tissues drop too far down, they can block your airway.
You will stop breathing momentarily, and your brain will signal your body to wake up and take in more oxygen. After a few normal breaths, you’ll drift off to sleep once more, until this cycle repeats itself – which can happen hundreds of times a night for severe sleep apnea sufferers.
In addition to disturbing your sleep, sleep apnea has also been linked to several serious health conditions, including high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, and depression. Treating your sleep apnea now can actually help you live longer.
