Has your sleeping partner ever complained about your snoring? Do you wake up in the middle of the night gasping for air? This may be a sign of sleep apnea. Fortunately, Dr. Austin can work with a sleep specialist to diagnose this condition and develop a solution to treat it. Our sleep dentistry services can help you rest better at night and leave you refreshed in the morning.

What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a disorder that temporarily restricts a person’s breathing while they’re asleep. Most cases go undiagnosed since many individuals aren’t aware they have it. Besides snoring, some other common signs of sleep apnea include feeling tired throughout the day, difficulty focusing, and waking up in the morning with headaches.

A Solution for Snoring and Sleep Apnea

Most people with sleep apnea sleep with a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machine at night. However, did you know our office offers another solution for snoring and sleep apnea that doesn’t involve masks, tubes, and heavy machines?

The Mandibular Advancement Appliance is a removable appliance that temporarily moves the jaw and tongue forward to increase airway space. They’re custom-made specifically for your mouth and are ideal for those who had no success with other sleep apnea treatments.

Benefits of the Mandibular Advancement Appliance

The Mandibular Advancement Appliance is an excellent second option for those who have difficulty using a CPAP machine. This oral appliance has many advantages, including:

  • Great for those who travel a lot
  • Improves symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea
  • No electricity required
