Our professional Grand Rapids dentists are available to help you tackle sleep disorders such as sleep apnea and snoring which can disrupt your life and cause more serious problems if not diagnosed and treated properly.
Lake Michigan Dental can offer you several safe and effective solutions to relieve snoring and mild obstructive sleep apnea.
Sleep Apnea and snoring can be potentially serious disorders, causing breathing to stop and start during sleep. Lake Michigan Dental’s expert dentists can provide you with safe and effective options to reduce or eliminate these frustrating and dangerous issues.
Obstructive sleep apnea, which occurs when throat muscles relax, is treated with:
- Oral devices designed to open your throat by bringing your jaw forward
- In severe cases, patients may require a CPAP mechanical appliance
- Always follow up with your dentist every six months to ensure proper fit
Once you find the right fit, you’ll still need to follow up with your Lake Michigan Dental dentist at least every six months during the first year and then at least once a year after that to ensure that the fit is still good and to reassess your signs and symptoms.
If you are experiencing any of the common problems caused by obstructive sleep apnea or snoring, please contact Lake Michigan Dental to schedule an examination or call our Grand Rapids dentists at (616) 453-8211.
