Treating Sleep Apnea and Stopping Snoring Read Transcript

If your chronic snoring is a sign of sleep apnea, we can create a customized oral appliance for you in our Jackson, MI dentist office that will help you – and your family members – get a good night’s rest every night.

For a sleep apnea treatment consultation, call Watterson Family Dentistry at 517-888-0021.

An Oral Appliance Can Help You Rest

The two most common treatments for sleep apnea and chronic snoring are:

  • CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine, which keeps your airway open with a steady stream of air
  • Oral appliance, which gently shifts your jaw into place to keep your airway open

Many of our patients find oral appliances more comfortable and less distracting to wear than a CPAP. Dr. Scott Watterson has special training and years of hands-on experience treating sleep apnea, so he can help you determine which treatment is right for you.

We Can Help Diagnose Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a condition in which soft tissue in your throat blocks your airway, causing you to gasp for breath – as many as hundreds of times in one night. While that’s alarming enough, sleep apnea has also been linked to health conditions such as stroke and diabetes.

Using our high-tech Galileos 3D imaging system, we can look for obstructions and other issues in your airway. We’ll also look at your medical history and talk to you about your symptoms. And we can work with your physician on obtaining a sleep study that will show whether or not you have sleep apnea.

Understanding Sleep Apnea Symptoms

It doesn’t take long for lack of restful sleep to catch up to you. If you’re missing zzzs due to sleep apnea, you may be:

  • Tired when you wake and throughout the day
  • Lethargic
  • Irritable
  • Moody
  • Have headaches

If you’re ready to get a restful night’s sleep again, call Watterson Family Dentistry at 517-888-0021 to finally get a sleep apnea treatment. Or use our online form to book a consultation with Dr. Scott Watterson at our Jackson, MI dentist office.
