Sleep Apnea Treatments

Do you or a loved one snore, stop breathing in your sleep, wake up with headaches, or are just plain tired all of the time? Have you or a loved one been diagnosed with sleep Apnea, but cannot tolerate the treatment prescribed? At Dentistry by Design we have a solution to treat mild to moderate sleep apnea that often eliminates the need for traditional CPAP equipment.

If left untreated, sleep apnea can lead to fatigue, depression, and other serious health issues such as heart disease or high blood pressure. At Dentistry by Design, Dr. Gilsdorf will work with your medical doctor to create a custom-fitted oral appliance that will safely align your jaw so that your airway stays open throughout the night. This will allow you to sleep more soundly and comfortably so you can achieve the full nights rest you deserve.
