Sleep Apnea Treatment
Obstructive sleep apnea is an ongoing condition that disrupts sleep.
When breathing is paused or becomes shallow, one will often move out of deep sleep and into light sleep, making the quality of sleep poor. Sleep apnea can be treated with lifestyle changes, mouthpieces, breathing devices, and/or surgery.
Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT) is often an effective alternative to CPAP for patients suffering from obstructive sleep apnea.
Many patients suffering from sleep apnea can find relief using a custom removable Oral Appliance Therapy appliance, which adjusts the position of the lower jaw and tongue to minimize airway obstruction.
Drs. Michels & Gauquie have been working with area physicians and sleep clinics for the past 10 years testing the efficacy of certain sleep apnea oral appliances. There are over 80 different oral devices on the market. We have found the ones that are the most comfortable and effective for you.
