Sleep Apnea

If you have been diagnosed with Sleep Apnea and cannot use a CPAP device, dentistry may be able to help you. Dentists can make an appliance that you wear while sleeping that helps to open the airway by holding the lower jaw in a more forward position. If you are familiar with a night guard, the device fits in a similar way. There are a variety of designs for these devices and sometimes the cost is covered be medical insurance. At Westmount Dental Arts, we partner with your physician to find an oral appliance that helps to treat your airway.
