Sleep apnea is a common sleeping disorder that causes breathing to stop or become shallow for 10 seconds or longer. It is caused by the upper airway partially closing during sleep.

What is sleep apnea?
Sleep apnea is a common but serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts. Breathing pauses can last from a few seconds to minutes. They may occur 30 times or more an hour, disrupting the normal progression of sleep and leaving the person feeling unrefreshed upon waking.
How does sleep apnea harm your health?
TSleep apnea increases blood pressure and heart rate while decreasing oxygen levels in the blood. This can lead to cardiovascular problems, including heart failure and stroke. Sleep apnea also makes it difficult to concentrate during the day because of excessive daytime sleepiness, which may cause memory problems or make it difficult to perform tasks that require alertness and clear thinking.
How we can treat your sleep apnea.
We offer several options for treating sleep apnea including:
MAD Appliance - MAD devices move the lower jaw forward to open the airway. Patients wear MADs while they sleep to keep their tongues out of the throat and away from the airway.
Vivos DNA Appliance - Vivos DNA Appliance permanently alters the bone structure to make the mouth larger, so that the tongue does not have to be forced into the throat. This makes it easier for you to breathe and eat.
