How Can a Dentist Help With Sleep Apnea?
At Airdrie Springs Dental, we can work with patients who are CPAP intolerant to find a way to enhance their quality of sleep. We partner with your physician or sleep doctor to see whether or not an oral appliance is a viable alternative.
Oral sleep appliances work by repositioning your jaw, so that your airway doesn’t become blocked once you lay back on your pillow. It keeps your lower jaw slightly forward, preventing the tongue from slipping back against your soft palate.
Depending on your situation, an oral sleep appliance may:
• Give you noticeable results as quickly as the first night’s use
• Allow you to stop using your CPAP machine
• Be covered by your medical insurance
• Reduce damage to your teeth and existing restorations
