Snoring

We offer SomnoDent appliances to reposition the lower jaw forward to reduce and eliminate snoring. These appliances are custom-made for each patient, and then are gradually adjusted to bring the lower jaw forward enough to eliminate snoring.

Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a serious medical condition diagnosed by a sleep study. It can lead to being chronically tired, and in severe cases, to various medical problems, including heart failure.

The SomnoDent appliance we make can be adjusted to help treat sleep apnea. Sometimes, it can be used in place of a CPAP, which is often prescribed for treatment of sleep apnea. While we make and fit these devices, sleep apnea is a medical condition which requires a diagnosis and treatment by a qualified physician.
