Snoring & Sleep Apnea

Prevent Snoring

Millions of Americans and those trying to sleep near them, have a snoring problem. While many believe snoring is a noisy and harmless condition, it could be a warning sign of sleep apnea, a severe breathing problem and sleep disorder where a sleeper stops breathing for 10 seconds or more. In fact, an estimated 18 million Americans have this problem and only 2 million have been treated. Let us help you and your spouse get a good night’s sleep.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Oral Appliance Therapy.While snoring is a social problem, the breathing stops of sleep apnea can lead to high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes, daytime sleepiness, diabetes, depression and other health problems. There are 3 treatments for sleep apnea: a CPAP forced breathing machine, surgery, or our dental appliance. Studies show that 50% of people treated for sleep apnea with a face mask/air pump(CPAP machine) don’t wear them. Most of these people would usually be able to wear a removable sleep apnea dental appliance to solve their sleep apnea and avoid this severe health problem. If you snore, please take our exam to see if you have sleep apnea. If you’re searching for CPAP Troy Oh, sleep apnea Troy OH, CPAP Dayton OH or sleep apnea Dayton OH solutions, please call us. Click on SomnoMed to see how a sleep apnea appliance works.
