To get started, we would like to cover some commonly mentioned worries that come through our doors quite often. With some new, essential information under your belt, you’ll see that the solution to your sleep disorder is certainly a worthwhile venture.

Questions and Answers: Sleep Apnea

Question: If I agree to sleep apnea treatment, is it going to be uncomfortable?

Answer: Not at all! Receiving treatment requires you to wear a comfortable, custom-crafted mouthguard throughout your sleeping hours. Instead of dealing with interrupted sleep due to collapsing throat tissues, you’ll enjoy open airways.

Question: Is sleep apnea treatment going to interfere with medication that I’m taking?

Answer: Nope, this isn’t a concern. Since you will simply wear a mouthguard, your treatment is drug free. This means it is not in conflict with daily medications.

Question: Is sleep apnea treatment the same thing as oral appliance therapy?

Answer: This type of therapy is what we offer for sleep apnea (versions of oral appliance therapy are also commonly offered for issues like bruxism disorder and TMJ disorder). It refers to the use of a device (such as a mouthguard) to address the disorder you’re dealing with. For sleep apnea, the device provides the repositioning of your jaw (just a little bit) for improved sleep.
