What Are the Symptoms of Sleep Apnea?
Get in touch with our team if you (or a loved one) have been dealing with any of these common sleep apnea symptoms:
- Loud or disruptive snoring
- Excessive daytime sleepiness

- Frequent urination during the night

At-Home Sleep Testing
To confirm that your rest is being disrupted by sleep apnea, you’ll need to complete a sleep test, where your oxygen levels, heart rate, and other vitals are monitored throughout the night. Traditionally, these tests were conducted in a lab, so naturally, many patients have difficulty falling asleep in an unfamiliar setting. Our practice makes this process easier (and more accurate) by loaning you an at-home sleep testing system, letting you gather the data we need for a diagnosis in the comfort of your own home.
Oral Appliance Therapy
To prevent soft oral tissues from obstructing your airway, the area will need to be kept clear. Rather than doing so by forcing air through your mouth and nose via an obnoxious CPAP machine, our dentists can create a custom-fit mouthpiece known as an oral appliance. Simply place this tray over your teeth before bed, and during the night, it will gently adjust the position of your lower jaw. As a result, your airway will remain open, leading to fewer interruptions and more restful sleep.
