Struggling with Sleep Apnea?
If you have obstructive sleep apnea, also known as OSA, your breathing pauses countless times throughout the night. These pauses can be accompanied by snores, snorts, or gasping sounds.

Lifestyle Changes to Help With Sleep Apnea
With lifestyle changes like quitting smoking or losing weight, your sleep apnea could resolve itself. When you visit us for sleep apnea treatment, we’ll create a personalized plan just for you.
Oral Appliance Therapy
One way to treat sleep apnea is through an oral appliance made in our office. This appliance is a comfortable, custom-fitted device worn at night to keep your airway open so that you can breathe freely.
CPAP and surgery methods are also available, but if you’re CPAP intolerant or would just prefer not to use it, most patients find they can enjoy a great night’s sleep again by use of our appliance.
Other Effects of Sleep Apnea
Sleep apnea is an issue that, if left untreated, often leads to bigger health problems including: high blood pressure, heart issues, and diabetes. Plus, constantly waking up at night can make it hard to focus during the day, and can even endanger you while driving.
But don’t worry! Help is available. At Rotem Dental Care, we’re interested in every facet of your health, not just the cleanliness of your teeth.
