Benefits of Snoring & Sleep Apnea Devices
Sleep apnea is a serious disorder that causes breathing to stop and start during sleep. Our 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 one of our dentists every 6 months to ensure proper fit.
Once you find the right fit, you’ll still need to follow up with one of our dentists every 6 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.
