At Hickory Dentistry, we offer innovative sleep apnea treatment options to improve your sleep quality and overall health. Sleep apnea, a common sleep disorder characterized by repeated interruptions in breathing during sleep, can lead to serious health issues if left untreated. Dental appliances are a non-invasive, effective solution for many patients suffering from sleep apnea.

Benefits of Dental Appliances for Sleep Apnea
Dr. Josh M. Millsaps recommends dental appliances for sleep apnea due to their numerous advantages:

  • Ease of Use: Dental appliances are easy to wear and more comfortable compared to traditional CPAP machines.
  • Portability: Their small size makes them ideal for travel, ensuring continuous treatment.
  • Custom Fit: Customized to fit the unique contours of your mouth for maximum comfort and effectiveness.
  • Improved Sleep Quality: By maintaining an open airway, these appliances significantly reduce sleep apnea symptoms, leading to a better night’s sleep.

How Dental Appliances Work
The dental appliances provided by our dentist and team function by:

  • Repositioning the Lower Jaw: Moving the lower jaw forward to keep the airway open during sleep.
  • Stabilizing the Tongue: Preventing the tongue from blocking the airway.

Getting Started with Treatment
We are committed to helping patients navigate their sleep apnea treatment with personalized care. The process includes:

  • Comprehensive Evaluation: Dr. Millsaps conducts a thorough assessment to determine if a dental appliance is the right solution for you.
  • Custom Design and Fitting: Your appliance will be custom-made to ensure it fits perfectly and comfortably.
