The Art Of Dentistry
Sleep disorders can range from mild snoring to the more serious obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
Sleep disorders can lead to serious health problems for the snorer, spouse, or other family member whose sleep may be disrupted.
Some common health problems associated with sleep disorders and sleep deprivation include daytime fatigue, increased blood pressure, cardiovascular problems, anxiety/depression, increased risk of vehicle accident (3-10X) and reduced quality of life.

For patients with mild to moderate sleep apnea, a dental device can be worn to hold the lower jaw in a more forward position. By maintaining this forward position throughout the night while wearing the device the airway is kept open during sleep, patients can breathe freely and be oxygenated. Oral appliances are so comfortable; they have no noise or fuss and no bulky equipment to sleep with at night.
