Sleep Support (Apnea)

Is Sleep Apnea a Problem?Eighteen million Americans experience obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) – 1 in 15 people. If you’re one of them, Pride Dental can help.

Say Goodbye to CPAP!

Oral Appliance Therapy is the first line treatment for those with mild to moderate sleep apnea – much more comfortable and highly effective in keeping the airway open.

A number of nighttime appliances are available that hold the lower jaw forward just enough to keep the tongue from falling back and help create more tone in the tissues lining the throat. (Forward movement of just 2 to 3 millimeters can sometimes double or even triple the size of the airway!)

Daytime appliances are designed to be “invisible” while compelling the tongue to sit in its proper position for healthy breathing: against the palate with the tip just above and behind the front teeth.

Our doctors evaluate patients and recommend appliances on an individual basis, based on each patient’s physiological need and unique circumstance.

Over the years, our clinic has been able to help many people with issues ranging from snoring and sleep apnea to Reynaud’s; ADHD and anxiety to chronic headaches and migraines.

Not sure if OSA is a problem for you? There are several good online tests you can take. If your results say yes or maybe, take the first step toward better health and contact us for a consultation.
