Snoring & Sleep Apnea

What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea? 

Patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) have repeated episodes of partial or complete obstruction of the throat and lungs while you sleep.

Apnea can last from 10 seconds and in severe cases over a minute in duration.

Numerous apneas throughout the night cause sleep disturbance and put a strain on you heart.

 

One of the treatment choices your doctor can prescribe is a custom made Mandibular Advancement Splint such as SomnoDent. It is worn over your teeth and holds your lower jaw forwards, which opens your airways.
