Dental Sleep Medicine
Traditional treatment for obstructive sleep apnea has been continuous positive airway pressure or CPAP therapy. However, while some individuals can tolerate CPAP therapy, others are unable to. This has resulted in the need for alternative treatment options which is where a dentist trained in Dental Sleep Medicine becomes critical. Dentists work together with sleep physicians to identify the best treatment for each patient. Oral appliance therapy has been widely studied to be successful in many people suffering from sleep-disordered breathing. At Prins Dental, we are trained in Dental Sleep Medicine and use advanced equipment along with the highest quality dental labs to help achieve more restful sleep through oral appliance therapy. We have a passion to help those that need it most as sleep is critical to overall health and higher quality of life. Please call us with any questions you may have about oral appliance therapy and Dental Sleep Medicine.
