Can’t Wait

While snoring can keep you from a good night’s sleep, you shouldn’t dismiss it as just an annoyance. Often, it signifies sleep apnea, a medical condition that impacts an estimated 12 to 20 million Americans every night. Obstructive sleep apnea, the most common form, happens when the airway becomes blocked while you sleep. The lapses in breathing, which cause you to awaken and take a breath, can occur up to 30 times an hour and hundreds of times each night. We offer sleep apnea therapy in our Fresno, CA dental office to help patients stop snoring and start sleeping soundly.

Untreated Sleep Apnea

Without treatment, sleep apnea can lead to:

  • Daytime Drowsiness
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Increased Risk of Stroke
  • Memory Loss
  • Mood Disorders
  • Falling Asleep at Inappropriate Times
  • Weight Gain

A continuous positive airway pressure machine, or CPAP, is the most common treatment. However, for patients who are CPAP intolerant or prefer a less invasive solution, Dr. Reintjes may advise the use of a nightguard. This custom oral appliance holds the jaw slightly forward to prevent the closure of the airway, enabling a patient to breathe normally and sleep peacefully all night.

Sleep Apnea Appliances

To help you sleep and breathe deeply through the night, a custom-crafted oral appliance may offer a comfortable, portable alternative to traditional CPAP therapies. We typically use the Somnodent line of appliances because they offer a variety of options to ensure comfort and efficacy for almost any patient. Somnodent appliances can be used to address loud, chronic snoring without a sleep apnea diagnosis, and they are effective therapy for patients suffering from mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea.
