Sleep Apnea

At MG Dentistry we are here to get you and your bed partner a more restful sleep! Snoring can often be treated with an oral appliance that will serve 2 functions: protecting your teeth and minimizing your snoring!
Additionally, snoring can be a risk factor for a more serious problem like Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). This is an issue that involves coordinating care with a sleep physician who can determine your best treatment options. OSA is classified as either mild, moderate, or severe. Often times if you have mild or moderate sleep apnea, oral appliances can be used as a first line treatment option.
