Dental Appliances Sleep Apnea

Dental Appliances Sleep ApneaA dental appliance may be a particularly good choice for patients who have mild to moderate sleep apnea. The right treatment plan can help you enjoy a better night of sleep and help you breathe easier all night long. Our Los Angeles dentist can help you identify the most appropriate treatment plan for your needs, which may include dental appliances for sleep apnea.

Dental appliances for sleep apnea are custom designed. By creating a customized appliance, we can ensure comfort and ease of use for our patients with sleep apnea. Our Los Angeles dentist will begin by making impressions of your teeth. The impressions that we take will be used to create your appliance. Two primary styles of dental appliances are available. The first style is designed to bring the lower jaw forward, which helps keep the airways open. The second style repositions the tongue to prevent it from falling over the throat and stabilizes the soft tissues to prevent them from collapsing into the airways. We will work with you to determine the best style for your needs.

Once your appliance is ready, we will check its fit. Periodic adjustments may be necessary to ensure continued comfort. You may experience an adjustment period during which you get used to using the appliance while sleeping. However, your appliance should not be painful or irritate the soft tissues of your mouth. Close monitoring is essential to ensure that the appliance is continuing to do its job and that your jaw is adjusting appropriately.

Each of our patients is unique and may have additional treatment recommendations based on their specific sleep apnea needs and personal preferences. If you have symptoms of sleep apnea, we can help. Contact our sleep apnea doctor in Los Angeles today to learn more about dental appliances for sleep apnea or to schedule your consultation.
