Sleep apnea in recent years, over the last five to 10 years, there have been so many studies on how detrimental sleep apnea is for overall systemic health. Really what's been considered the gold standard in treating sleep apnea is the CPAP machine, but not everybody can tolerate a CPAP machine and not everybody necessarily needs one.
So dentists, since we work with the oral cavity so much, we're the place to go to to get an oral sleep appliance. The way they work is they essentially just move your lower jaw forward some and it opens up the patient's airway, so when they're sleeping the air goes down through their pharynx and airway a lot smoother instead of it being obstructed.
Some patients will continue to use a CPAP machine and an oral appliance, but it's also really effective in treating snoring. We've had a number of spouses that have sang its praises for getting their husband or wife to stop snoring, and everyone is getting a lot better sleep and they feel more rested and they're healthier because of it.

Put an End to Your Sleep Apnea Problems
Sleep apnea symptoms do more than just disrupt your sleep. Obstructive sleep apnea, the most common kind of sleep apnea, can contribute to a number of serious health problems, including high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, and depression. That’s why it’s better to seek sleep apnea treatment now rather than later. Our treatment can improve your quality of life and potentially help you live longer.
Sleep apnea treatment from Starr General Dentistry can help you avoid the need for a bulky CPAP machine. We’ll fit you with a simple oral appliance that will minimize sleep apnea symptoms by moving your lower jaw slightly forward. This movement will help keep your airway open while you sleep, as obstructive sleep apnea is caused when the tongue and other soft tissues in your throat relax and block your air passages.
The result will be more restful sleep as well as more productive days. In addition, since snoring is caused by air moving across those soft tissues, you’ll snore less or not at all. Your bed partner will be grateful for your treatment!
