Our Available Solutions for Obstructive Sleep Apnea
A continuous positive airway pressure machine can gently deliver constant air pressure to keep your airways open and help you breathe while you sleep. Continuous positive airway pressure can help patients who suffer from obstructive sleep apnea improve their sleep quality and minimize symptoms like irritability and daytime sleepiness.
While CPAP is often an effective treatment for sleep apnea, many patients prefer an oral appliance because it's easy to use and doesn't make noise. A custom oral appliance is a comfortable, effective, non-invasive treatment that can help you breathe properly throughout the night. Our dentist can take detailed measurements and scans of your airway, jaw, tongue, and teeth to design an oral appliance you can wear while you sleep. This oral device will gently shift your lower jaw forward to prevent your airway tissues from collapsing during the night.

Frequently Asked Questions About Sleep Apnea
I don't snore. Could I still have sleep apnea?
Yes. Snoring is only one potential symptom of sleep apnea. You can still have a sleep disorder without snoring.
Why should I see a dentist for sleep apnea treatment?
Dr. Mormino has the tools to create a custom oral appliance that's comfortable and effective. He will also partner with your physician to craft a personalized treatment plan to fit your needs. Sleep apnea can cause dry mouth which leads to oral health concerns like decay and gum disease, so meeting with a dentist can give you well-rounded treatment.
Will I stop snoring with sleep apnea treatment?
While some patients may still experience snoring with treatment, CPAP and oral appliances may reduce or eliminate your snoring. However, some adjustments may need to be made to your treatment first.
