Do you have or do you suspect you have sleep apnea. Dr. Gazerro holds a Qualified Dentist status as a member of the Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine. As such once you have been diagnosed with Sleep Apnea he can work with your physician to fabricate an oral appliance to treat your sleep apnea instead of CPAP.
Oral appliance therapy is a treatment option that may be an effective choice. While CPAP is considered the standard treatment it doesn’t work if you don’t use it. A custom fit oral appliance can be more comfortable to wear and therefore it is more likely to be used daily to help treat your condition. It fits similar to a retainer or mouth guard and helps to position your lower jaw in a forward position which improves on the opening of the airway. Since the device aids in the opening of the airway, it can help treat snoring and sleep apnea. The device is convenient when patients travel and they are easy to maintain and care for.
