Many people deal with sleep apnea on a regular basis. It’s an incredibly disruptive problem to have, and treatment options for it aren’t always comfortable. A CPAP machine is loud, bulky, and will likely disturb your partner while sleeping.
So if you suffer from sleep apnea and want to explore other solutions, we encourage you to look into what Dr. Chase Bennett can do for you.
Why go to a dentist?
A lot of sleep apnea problems are caused by the flow of air into your throat at night. By adjusting either the position of your jaw, or positioning your jaw and tongue more appropriately, a dentist can create an oral device custom-fit to your mouth that’ll alleviate your sleep apnea problems.
What are the solutions?
When you see our team here at Craniofacial Pain Center Of Colorado in Arvada, Colorado, for sleep apnea treatment, you’ll likely be presented with two options: a Mandibular Advancement Device (MAD) or a Tongue Retaining Mouthpiece.
Both of these appliances work by repositioning your jaw and tongue to allow more air to flow into your throat and reduce sleep apnea symptoms. After a consultation with Dr. Chase Bennett, you’ll be able to determine which is the best course of action for your sleep apnea needs.
While it may not be an immediately visible solution, visiting a dentist to help with your sleep apnea may be just the thing you need. Call us today at 303.421.2696 to schedule an appointment.
