One of the easiest ways to improve your sleep quality is to get one of our custom made mouth guards to help prevent snoring and sleep apnea.

Other Forms of Treatment:

  • Weight loss, to help you reach your ideal weight will often improve snoring and sleep apnea, and in some cases will cure it
  • Surgical treatments for sleep apnea; surgeries to the tongue, throat, tonsils, adenoids, nasal septum, turbinates, and sinuses. In the right person these can be effective. These surgeries are done by ear nose and throat specialists
  • Many other surgical procedures exist and are successful in the right patient in the right hands. Hypoglossal Nerve Stimulation therapy (Inspire Medical therapy) is a new treatment that can cure sleep apnea by the implantation of a pacemaker under the chest skin which stimulates the nerve to the tongue (the Hypoglossal nerve). Like other procedures, it works for the right patient. The Inspire device is the first such treatment and was recently approved by the FDA
  • Studies have shown that relaxation in the form of calming classical music can help patients with sleep disorders including insomnia and sleep apnea
