Mill Creek Sleep Apnea Treatment
So If You Snore or Use a CPAP, It’s Time to See Your Mill Creek Dentist.
It sounds a bit surprising, doesn’t it? After all, why would you see a dentist to help you stop snoring?
The answer to your question, and maybe even to your sleep apnea and snoring, is a custom-made oral appliance.
The oral appliance is worn like a mouthguard and positions your jaw so that your airway remains open during sleep. Dr. Rutherford will design and build an oral appliance to fit you perfectly.
The oral appliance is so small that patients find it a much more comfortable and easy-to-use treatment method than the CPAP.
If you have been diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), you may have been instructed to use a CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) machine to keep your airways open.
Some people find the CPAP to be bulky and uncomfortable. The oral appliance is an effective, comfortable alternative for sleep apnea treatment.
It’s time for you to get back to sleep. And back to health. Call your Mill Creek Dentist today to schedule your fitting for an oral appliance.
