Dental Sleep Medicine / Oral Appliance Therapy

Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a partial to complete collapse of the upper airway caused by relaxation of muscles controlling the soft palate and tongue. This sleep disorder can have a negative effect on your overall health – left untreated, OSA can take 12 plus years off your life.

For those who have been diagnosed and treated for OSA with a CPAP but are unable to wear it comfortably and be compliant with it daily, there is an alternative that works well in managing your sleep apnea – Oral Appliance Therapy.

Dr. Miller and his staff welcome your questions in regards to Oral Appliance Therapy and how it can benefit you in managing your sleep apnea.
