Were you finally diagnosed with sleep apnea and given “the machine” to assist in night-time breathing? Though in theory many recognize the benefits of forced oxygen, in reality they find it excessively uncomfortable wearing a bulky mask to bed, and odder still is packing an oxygen tank on an overnight visit to relatives.
Dr. Files offers sleep apnea sufferers in Redmond WA viable alternatives. You’ve seen the mouthguards athletes fit over their upper and lower teeth? They are not overly obtrusive or obvious, yet they play an important function. Similar in style, a patented oral appliance by the name of SomnoDent can be designed specifically to match your oral makeup. This dental appliance has been hugely successful in treating mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea.
Your jaws structure, size of tongue, palate, teeth and gums, all are very individual to you. So a “one-size-fits-all” approach to an oral device would understandably be uncomfortable in such a sensitive area as your mouth. Dr. Files takes each of these variables into careful consideration when designing the perfect oral appliance for your needs. Precision-made and clinically-tested as a medical device, you can be assured of superior craftsmanship.
What makes such devices so effective in treating sleep apnea? Redmond WA dentistry expert, Dr. Files, will be pleased to meet with you to address all your questions and concerns. Consult him today to protect your health more comfortably!
