Oral Appliance Therapy for Sleep Apnea Management

Oral Appliance Therapy for Sleep Apnea Management in Yates Center

Obstructive sleep apnea (or OSA) can be a cumbersome and potentially dangerous health issue that affects millions of Americans. It is caused by an airway blockage and leads to snoring, fatigue, restlessness, and sometimes more intense symptoms like headaches, hypertension, and arrhythmia. If your doctor has diagnosed you or a loved one with sleep apnea, there are a multitude of treatment options. Our team at Yates Dental & Orthodontics offers custom-made oral appliance therapies to keep your airways open while you sleep. We offer free, in-person consultations to patients throughout Yates Center and surrounding areas, so you can meet with our dentist and learn about how a custom oral appliance can help you.

Our Custom-Made Mouthpieces Versus a CPAP

In addition to oral appliance treatments, a continuous positive airway pressure machine (or CPAP) might be suggested. However, there is never a one-size-fits-all solution for sleep apnea, so if you are a good candidate for our personalized mouthpieces, you can enjoy some surprising benefits that a CPAP cannot offer.

Benefits of our oral appliances include:

  • Quiet, never keeping your partner up at night
  • Portable and incredibly convenient to travel with
  • Easy to maintain
  • Custom-fit, making them comfortable to wear

Dr. Matthew Standridge will work closely with your physician to help treat your sleep apnea. After speaking with your primary physician and performing a thorough dental exam and consultation, we will determine whether or not our oral appliances are right for you. We will then walk you through the fitting and impression process for your new mouthguard that will reposition your tongue or lower jaw to effectively open your airway. If you are suffering from sleep apnea and live in Yates Center, give Yates Dental & Orthodontics today to see if we can help!
