Oral appliances are worn during sleep to treat snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. Similar to orthodontic retainers or sports mouth guards, oral appliance therapy involves the selection, design, fitting, use and professional titration of a custom-designed oral sleep appliance that is worn during sleep. The job of the oral appliance is to prevent the obstruction that occurs when the lower jaw, tongue and tissues in the back of the throat become relaxed during sleep and collapse into the narrow airway space.
Owners Dr. Beth Hamann, DDS, and Dr. Shari Aftahi, DMD, have 50 years of combined experience in dentistry and advanced training in the treatment of sleep disorders. They provide comfortable treatment options for patients that suffer from obstructive sleep apnea, snoring and TMJ joint disorder, using non-invasive oral appliance therapy.
