Put an End to Sleep Apnea and Get a Good Night’s Rest

No Snoring, No CPAP

If your bed partner has been complaining about your snoring, or it feels like you can never seem to get enough sleep, you may be suffering from a condition known as sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is the blockage of the airway while sleeping, causing a lack of oxygen from getting to the brain and often causing the sufferer to wake up gasping for air. If you have unsuccessfully tried other sleep apnea solutions in the past and discovered that you are CPAP-intolerant, we offer an alternative. Patients in Haworth, NJ affected by sleep apnea can visit our office and find out if a comfortable mouthguard can be their solution. Our custom mouthguards can treat the cause of sleep apnea, allowing you to finally get a restful night’s sleep.

How Does a Mouthguard Treat Sleep Apnea?

While wearing a mouthguard seems like such an easy solution, not just any over-the-counter mouthguard will treat your sleep apnea concerns. At Gentle Dentistry, we create one-of-a-kind dental mouthguards that are unique to your bite and mouth. Our doctors will examine your jaw and your occlusion before creating a device that will comfortably fit in your mouth. When wearing one of these mouthguards at night, your jaw will be gently repositioned to open the airway and allow oxygen to flow without blockage while you sleep. The result is a restful night’s sleep, typically without frequent snoring and waking during the night. 

The Importance of Sleep Apnea Therapy

Treating sleep apnea in Haworth, NJ, is important not just for your quality of sleep but for your overall health as well. Patients with untreated sleep apnea, are at risk of developing heart disease, and the condition is directly linked to obesity, diabetes and high blood pressure. Our mouthguard treatment is simple, minimally invasive and will benefit not only you, but those who are exposed to your frequent snoring at night. Many of our patients are excited to sleep better or exchange their cumbersome CPAP machines for a non-obstructive mouthguard.
