How Dentists Can Help Treat Sleeping Disorders

When most people think of dentistry, they rightly think of root canals, dental implants, Invisalign, and teeth whitening. Dentists inevitably work with teeth and the art and science of making a smile as beautiful as it can be. But dentists also treat patients holistically and, in this spirit, offer treatments such as those that treat sleeping disorders like obstructive sleep apnea and insomnia.

What most patients don’t often know is that dentists actually pioneered the use of oral appliance therapy for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea and snoring in adults. In an effort to reduce the likelihood that sleeping disorders lead to depression, diabetes, high blood pressure, low productivity, automobile crashes, and a variety of other problems, we offer oral appliances that are worn in the mouth during sleep. These custom-fit appliances prevent the airway from collapsing by supporting the jaw in a forward position. Oral appliances achieve this effect by advancing the lower jaw, which moves the tongue forward and opens the airway to allow improved breathing. The treatment often leads to a much higher quality of life that comes from improved sleep.
