Your Sleep Apnea Dentist

Sleep apnea is a sleep condition that disrupts breathing during sleep, disturbs rest, and causes health risks. At Family Dentistry of Lakewood, we offer specialized treatments to help manage sleep apnea and improve quality of life. Our team provides custom-made mouthguards to keep your airway open, ensuring you get the restful sleep you need.

  • How can a dentist help with sleep apnea?

    A dentist with sleep medicine training can help manage sleep apnea by creating a custom oral appliance that repositions the jaw to keep the airway open during sleep. This non-invasive treatment can significantly reduce sleep apnea symptoms and improve sleep quality.

  • What are the benefits of treating sleep apnea with a mouthguard?

    Treating sleep apnea with a mouthguard offers several advantages, including improved sleep quality, reduced snoring, enhanced daytime alertness, and a lower risk of associated health issues such as high blood pressure and heart disease. Mouthguards are a comfortable and convenient alternative to CPAP machines, making them a popular choice for many patients.

  • What should I expect when getting a sleep apnea mouthguard from a dentist?

    After reviewing your medical history, the dentist will take impressions of your teeth to create a custom-fitted mouthguard. Once the mouthguard is ready, you’ll have another appointment to ensure it fits comfortably and effectively. Follow-up visits may be scheduled to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments.
