What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a common sleep disorder that affects millions of people worldwide. It is characterized by interruptions in breathing during sleep, which can lead to a range of health issues, including fatigue, headaches, and even heart disease.

How is Sleep Apnea Diagnosed?

If you suspect that you may have sleep apnea, your doctor may recommend a sleep study to diagnose the condition. During a sleep study, you will be monitored while you sleep to determine if you are experiencing interruptions in your breathing. If you are diagnosed with sleep apnea, your doctor may recommend a range of treatment options, including oral appliance therapy.

Oral Appliance Therapy for Sleep Apnea

At Serenity Dental, we offer oral appliance therapy as a non-surgical treatment option for sleep apnea. This treatment involves the use of a custom-fitted oral appliance that is worn during sleep to help keep your airway open and prevent interruptions in breathing.

Our experienced dental team will work closely with you to determine the best oral appliance for your needs. We will take digital scans of your teeth and create a custom-fitted appliance that is comfortable to wear and effective in treating your sleep apnea.
