Treat Your Sleep Apnea

Get a Better Night’s Rest

Sleep apnea is a temporary pause in breathing while sleeping. The pause may last a few seconds to several minutes. Often sleep apnea occurs when your airway is blocked, which interrupts the airflow and causes you to snore.

You may be completely unaware that you are having difficulty breathing during the night but are told you have been snoring, experience a restless sleep or are tired during the day. A sleep study is the only effective way to determine if you have sleep apnea.

While a CPAP machine is currently the most common treatment for sleep apnea, there are different treatments available that can improve nighttime breathing and relieve snoring. If a sleep study confirms you have sleep apnea, we can work with your doctor to provide oral appliance therapy for you.

Our oral appliance therapy options include:

  • A specially designed night guard that repositions the lower jaw to help improve the airflow during sleep
  • A device that includes a facemask and continuous positive airflow pressure

Schedule a consultation with Dr. Wiltz to determine if oral appliance therapy can help you. Call us at256-319-3256.
