Sleep Matters. Improve Your Life.
Do you snore? Have you been diagnosed with sleep apnea?
Claremont Dental Institute offers oral appliance therapy for treating mild to moderate sleep apnea and addressing snoring. An alternative to the CPAP for patients who are intolerant or do not have severe symptoms, oral appliances offer key benefits:
An oral appliance will reposition the jaw to increase the size of the airway and minimize the collapse of soft tissue in the throat, a common cause of sleep apnea and snoring.
Sleep Is Important!
The quality of your sleep will impact the quality of your life each day. Poor sleep that is interrupted due to the symptoms of sleep apnea or snoring can cause a variety of changes in how you feel and function in your daily life. Many who suffer from sleep apnea experience:
Without treatment, sleep apnea can significantly increase your risk of sudden heart attack and stroke, especially if you have existing heart disease and high blood pressure.
Dr. Vijay Patel and the team of dental professionals at Claremont Dental Institute offer comprehensive care for the enjoyment of optimal oral health and the best possible quality of life. Sleep apnea, snoring and other diagnosed sleep-related concerns can often be addressed by your dentist with oral appliance therapy. We can work with you to custom fit a comfortable appliance that will offer relief from the symptoms of sleep apnea and reduce your risk for associated health concerns.
Our office welcomes new patients and offers state of the art dental care in a compassionate environment. We take a team approach to addressing your dental concerns to ensure that your results will meet your needs, improve your health and support your best quality of life.
If you are considered at risk for sleep apnea or would like to learn more about common signs and symptoms of a sleep disorder, schedule a visit with one of our dentists.
Although anyone of any age can be diagnosed with sleep apnea, we can perform a screening during your visit and discuss common risk factors to be aware of.
Our oral appliances are FDA cleared and have a 3 year warrranty. It is recommended that you visit with us at least once a year to evaluate the condition of your appliance and discuss changes in your symptoms.
In some cases your dental or health insurance benefits will cover the cost of an oral appliance when treating a diagnosed sleep disorder. We will work with you to determine your portion of treatment costs.
