Our dentist, Dr. Sanchez can provide sleep apnea suffers with a variety of appliances. These removable oral appliances are designed to hold your soft palate in the proper position and allow for a clear airway while you are sleeping. Such an appliance can help mitigate the common symptoms of sleep apnea such as severe snoring and periodic breathing interruption.
There are several different styles of appliances offered at Renaissance Dental. These appliances include tongue stabilizing devices, mandibular advancement devices and custom fit boil and bite sleep guards. Discovering which one is right for you will depend on the characteristics of your mouth, your specific problem, and even your personal preference.
Once Dr. Michael Sanchez, DDS provide you with a prescription sleep guard, you will need to take daily steps to clean and maintain it. This involves thoroughly rinsing the sleep guard under cool water each morning to remove any plaque buildup from the surface. You can also use a soft-bristled toothbrush and non-abrasive toothpaste to gently clean your appliance.
