Obstructive sleep apnea is a serious, potentially life-threatening condition, which occurs when the airway at the back of the throat becomes blocked while you sleep. To accurately diagnose
Stratford sleep apnea, your physician will perform a sleep study, to observe your symptoms while you’re at rest. Patients with sleep apnea may experience heavy snoring, gasping for air, waking up abruptly or ceasing to breathe while asleep. Because sleep apnea makes it difficult to get enough rest, you may also experience daytime symptoms such as fatigue, headaches and difficulty concentrating. To treat sleep apnea, your medical doctor may recommend a CPAP machine, which supplies continuous pressure through a mask worn over your nose, to keep your airway open. In certain cases our dentist can work with your medical team to provide a fully-customized Jericho sleep apnea oral appliance, as an alternative to the CPAP machine. Our oral appliance fits over your top and bottom teeth like a retainer, keeping your jaw in a slightly forward position, which allows air to pass through more easily. Our oral appliances are designed to fit comfortably and precisely, and are portable and easy to clean. Moreover, our team will take the time to teach you how to properly wear and maintain for your oral appliance for the most effective outcome of care.

A good night’s rest is vital to your health and quality of life, and with Stratford sleep apnea oral appliance therapy, we make it possible to get the sleep you need. At Stratford Family Dental, we personalize treatment for your comfort and convenience. To learn more call today.
