Patients who have been diagnosed with sleep apnea often find relief from their condition with the help of a sleep apnea appliance. This appliance is worn only when you sleep to reposition the jaw and prevent the effects of sleep apnea, such as snoring, obstructed breathing, and bruxism.
If you and Dr. Siti Lowery have determine that a sleep appliance is right for you, we will custom make your appliance using impressions of your smile to ensure it is comfortable, easy to wear, and durable. Our dentist will provide you with all of your appliance options and help you select the style that best treats your condition.
A sleep appliance is worn like a mouth guard or retainer, but only needs to be placed in your mouth before you go to sleep. The appliance pulls the lower jaw into proper position to keep the airways open and prevent blockages such as collapse airways or the tongue falling into the back of your mouth. These appliances are designed to help you sleep well so that you enjoy greater energy and alertness during the day.
We invite you to contact Lowery Smiles at 919-468-5501 today to learn more about your options for sleep apnea appliances in Cary, North Carolina, and schedule your initial consultation with our experienced and compassionate dentist.
