Sleep apnea is a common disorder in which you have one or more pauses in breathing or shallow breaths which you sleep. These pauses can last anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes and can occur up to 30 or more times per hour.

Many people do not realize that one of the most common causes of sleep apnea and snoring originates in the mouth. Oral appliances are available to treat both sleep apnea and snoring. Call Dr. Verne Ticknor DDS today to schedule a personal consultation regarding your condition.

How can dental care help?

The oral appliances offered in our office  help to reposition the lower jaw and tongue, permitting the airway to open properly.  This treatment normally helps

to resolve issues for patients with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea and snoring issues.

How do oral appliances work?

Sleep apnea is a chronic condition that typically causes light or shallow sleep which results in it being one of the leading causes of daytime sleepiness. Snoring is another sleep related issue that may cause you to wake often or keep others around you awake.
