Think bulky CPAP equipment is the only way to get better sleep? Think again!

Nothing can be more annoying then dealing with restless sleep coupled with daytime exhaustion, but if your symptoms are a result of sleep apnea you may not know where to turn. While a sleep specialist and other medical professionals can work together to ensure that Sleep Apneayour sleep apnea doesn’t affect your quality of sleep or your health, so too can your Leawood dentists Dr. Nancy Addy and Dr. Jarret Grosdidier.

That’s right, our dentists can help treat your snoring and obstructive sleep apnea right here in our Leawood dental office. So, what is oral appliance therapy and how can it help you? This custom-fitted sleep appliance is placed over your teeth like a mouthguard and is worn while you sleep. What it does is supports the jaw and makes sure it stays in the forward position, which means nice, open airways while you sleep.

There are many advantages to choosing oral appliance therapy including:

  • Non-invasive treatment
  • Easy to wear
  • Custom-fitted (so it’s comfortable)
  • Easy to travel with
  • Simple to care for

If you and our Leawood general dentist decide that oral appliance therapy is the best option for treating your snoring or sleep apnea symptoms we will help you determine which type of appliance is the right one for you (there are currently over 100 different kinds of FDA-cleared oral appliances available).

Your oral appliance is made based on impressions of your teeth. When your appliance is ready you will come back to our office for your fitting. Some adjustments might need to be made to ensure that you are getting the most effective treatment possible. We will also discuss how to care for and clean your oral appliance.
