If you often wake up groggy and exhausted or have been told that you snore, you may suffer from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). This sleep disorder is caused by blockage in the airway, either by the tongue falling to the back of the throat or the soft tissues of the airway collapsing during sleep. OSA can cause many issues, and has been linked to depression, diabetes, weakened immune system, and more. Patients with OSA should seek treatment to regain their quality of life.
Sweet Spot Smiles is here to help those with obstructive sleep apnea! Our practice is proud to offer the SomnoDent® sleep apnea appliance to help those who suffer from sleep apnea find the relief they need. This innovative appliance is a custom-fitted dental device that you simply wear in your mouth while sleeping. When worn, the appliance moves your lower jaw forward into a comfortable position, allowing the tissues at the back of your throat to relax. This ensures that the base of your tongue does not fall back and block your airway, giving you a safe and peaceful night’s rest.
SomnoDent® is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, making it ideal for when you have to travel. Many prefer this oral appliance therapy to other sleep apnea treatments due to its comfort, convenience, and effectiveness. Some additional benefits of SomnoDent® include:
- Allows for normal mouth-opening
- Safe and effective
- Permits normal speech and drinking
- Clinically proven to help with sleep apnea
- Custom-fitted to your mouth
