Treating Obstructive Sleep Apnea
The most common treatment for sleep apnea is the CPAP machine. However, many folks find it very difficult to fall asleep at night wearing the sleep apnea machine. While some have no choice but to get used to it, others have a second option that can be equally effective. If you’ve been diagnosed with OSA, Peak Family Dental Care can make a specially designed mouthpiece that prevents your throat from closing at night.
When you come in for an appointment, the Peak Family Dental Care team will review your sleep study results and then review your oral health to ensure that an OSA mouthpiece is the best option for you. We will scan the interior of your mouth and take X-rays of your jaw to ensure that you will benefit from the mouthpiece technology.
If we determine that you are a candidate for the mouthpiece, we will begin taking measurements for your jaw.
