Find Solutions to Your Sleep Apnea Issues
Does your family complain about your loud snoring? Do you find it difficult to sleep at night? You’re probably among the 18 – 20 million Americans suffering from Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). Excess tissue blocks your upper airway, making it difficult to draw breath while you sleep.

Effective Treatment for Your OSA
We can give you different appliances to lessen the obstruction to your airways. Mild to moderate OSA can be treated with oral applications. In this technique, we’ll reposition the tongue and the lower jaw forward to open up your airways.
Another Helpful Way to Treat OSA
Continuous Positive Airway Pressure or CPAP is also an accepted form of OSA treatment. In this method, a CPAP will pump air pressure into your airway and keep it open. However, this method is considered invasive and is not as widely used as an oral appliance.
