Sleep is an important part of our lives. Without the proper amount of sleep, we can suffer in a number of ways. If you get out of bed in the morning still feeling tired, have trouble concentrating during your workday, snore, or feel depressed, you could be suffering from one of the most common sleep disorders – obstructive sleep apnea. However, the team at Cedar Dental Group offers hope for sleep apnea in Renton. With our treatment, you could:Get a better night's sleep Read Transcript
Sleep apnea can have terrible detrimental effects to your overall health and shorten your life if you wake up gasping for air or with a racing heart, or even if you wake up in the morning and feel unrested – that can be a sign of sleep apnea. We offer oral appliances, which in many cases can be a great alternative to CPAP. CPAP is a great therapy but can be uncomfortable for some people. Oral appliance is much easier to wear and much more convenient for travel and mobility.

Sleep Better With a Custom Oral Appliance
A simple oral device could make all the difference if you’re suffering from sleep apnea symptoms. It will fit comfortably in your mouth while you sleep and help keep your airway open by moving your lower jaw slightly forward.
The result will be better airflow and higher blood oxygen levels while you sleep. You’ll also snore less (or not at all), as snoring is caused by air passing across the tongue and other soft tissues in the back of the throat. With these tissues slightly repositioned by the appliance, snoring is reduced and breathing is easier. Both you and your bed partner will rest better!
Improve Your Health With Sleep Apnea Treatment
Left untreated, obstructive sleep apnea can cause great harm. This condition has been linked to serious health issues including high blood pressure, strokes, heart attack, coronary artery disease, diabetes, and depression. Getting treated for your sleep apnea now could help you live longer and enjoy a better quality of life in the meantime.
If you have not yet been tested for sleep apnea, we can help:
- Dr. Courtney will perform an initial evaluation.
- He’ll provide you with an at-home sleep test if it looks like you have symptoms of sleep apnea.
- Dr. Courtney will review the results, and a sleep doctor will determine a diagnosis and recommend treatment.
- We may create a custom oral appliance, which works for many sleep apnea sufferers in managing their condition without a CPAP machine.
