Benefits of Snoring & Sleep Apnea Devices
Sleep Apnea and snoring can be potentially serious disorders, causing breathing to stop and start during sleep. Our expert Shelby Township dentists can provide you with safe and effective options to reduce or eliminate these frustrating and dangerous issues.
Obstructive sleep apnea, which occurs when throat muscles relax, is treated with oral devices designed to open your throat by bringing your jaw forward. In severe cases, patients may require a CPAP mechanical appliance. Follow up with your Shelby Township sleep apnea dentist every six months to ensure proper fit.
Once you find the right fit, you’ll still need to follow up with your sleep disorder dentist in Shelby Township every six months during the first year and then at least once a year after that to ensure that the fit is still good and to reassess your signs and symptoms.
