Sleep apnea is a serious health problem that goes widely undiagnosed. Most patients do not realize that dental professionals have ways to help minimize the interruptions in breathing that are associated with sleep apnea. Treatment might include a mandibular advancement device. This appliance is an excellent alternative to the bulky and uncomfortable continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machines. The mandibular advancement device is generally used for patients with mild cases of sleep apnea. Schedule an appointment to discuss your specific problems and concerns with Dr. Schulte. You may be able to get a well rested night’s sleep easier than you think.
