Do you wake yourself up in the middle of the night because you constantly snore? Do you wake up in the morning feeling more tired than you did when you went to bed? If so, you could have sleep apnea, and we are happy to provide a sleep apnea appliance in Portland, Oregon, that will help you.
The appliance we offer at Powell Boulevard Dental is a small, mouth guard-like product that fits tightly in your mouth while you sleep. While it is in your mouth, it will keep your oral muscles from collapsing in the middle of the night, which will stop the snoring and also open your airways. This product will not only help you sleep better, but your body will also receive the oxygen it needs to operate properly.
If you are interested in this product, we ask that you come into our office and meet with Dr. Denise M. Walthour. During this appointment, you and your dentist will discuss any issues and she will examine your oral cavity. Your dentist will thoroughly evaluate your situation and decide if this is the right solution for you. If it will indeed be beneficial, we will create your mouth guard and start your treatment right away.
