To determine the best New Jersey sleep apnea treatment for you, one of our dentists will first need to establish what type of sleep apnea you have. If you are suffering from any of the symptoms of sleep apnea, we can perform a screening examination to see if you are suffering from obstructive sleep apnea and, if you are, refer you to a sleep doctor for a comprehensive sleep test. If you are diagnosed with severe sleep apnea, you may need a medical device such as a CPAP machine that produces a continuous flow of air while you are sleeping by way of a mask or tubes.
Dental Treatments for Sleep Apnea
If you are diagnosed with mild or moderate sleep apnea, one of our dentists can fit you with a mandibular advancement device. These customized mouthguards work to hold your jaw in place, reposition your tongue, and relax your facial muscles, reducing airway obstruction and comfortably restoring a restful night’s sleep.
Some snoring mouthguards are available over the counter, but the benefits of these are inferior to those offered by our dentists. Using neuromuscular dentistry principles and customizing a mouthguard that conforms precisely to your mouth, we can help ensure optimal airflow and an end to your sleep apnea symptoms.
