Dental sleep medicine is an area of dentistry which focuses on the use of oral appliance therapy for the treatment of sleep-disordered breathing, such as snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. By working together with sleep physicians and other specialists, our sleep apnea dentist in East Brunswick can help you get the care you require, in as comfortable a form as possible. Although the most common treatment for sleep apnea is CPAP therapy, a treatment which requires wearing a mask throughout the night while you sleep, many patients have difficulty adhering to CPAP therapy, or prefer an alternative treatment. With specialized knowledge of orofacial anatomy and airway function, dentists were the first to introduce the use of oral appliance therapy for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea in adults. Designed to fit in the mouth like a sports mouthguard, oral appliances are designed with your comfort in mind and carefully personalized to keep your airway safely open throughout the night. Many patients prefer treatment with an oral appliance since it provides a quiet, comfortable and portable alternative to CPAP therapy.
Getting a quality night’s rest can reduce your risk for a broad range of serious health conditions. To learn more about how our sleep apnea dentist in East Brunswick can help find the right sleep apnea treatment for you, schedule your next appointment at Summerhill Dental Excellence today!
