Sleep Apnea Treatment in Scarsdale
Sleep apnea is a disorder in which one experiences one or more pauses in breathing or shallow breaths that disrupts sleep. You may have been diagnosed due to a sleep study or based on matching up to a set of symptoms. The symptoms are loud snoring and poor quality of sleep as you have brief periods of moving out of deep sleep back to light sleep because of the brief breathing disruptions.
Depending on severity sleep apnea can be treated with lifestyle changes, mouthpieces, breathing devices, and/or surgery. Our office specializes in creating custom-fitted mouthpieces for patients to wear when they are sleeping that positions the lower jaw and tongue in a way that minimizes airway obstruction.
Scarsdale Dental Group offers the SomnoDent® Herbst Advance for the effective treatment of sleep-disordered breathing by providing COAT™ (Continuous Open Airway Therapy). SomnoDent oral devices are clinically proven, safe, and FDA cleared for mild-to-moderate obstructive sleep apnea by comfortably positioning the patient’s mandibular forward, clearing the obstructed airway.
