Sleep Dentistry


A good night’s sleep is an absolute must for all of us.  We have a special interest in the conservative treatment of sleep disorders, such as snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.  If you are concerned about your own sleep habits or those of someone you love, Craniofacial Pain Associates can make custom snoring and sleep apnea appliances.


Sleep apnea is a medical condition in which you periodically stop breathing at night during sleep.  This can be life-threatening.  If you have sleep apnea, you are more prone to heart disease, high blood pressure and obesity.  You may have trouble with daytime sleepiness, lack of alertness and concentration.  

A sleep study can detect sleep apnea and also indicate whether the condition is mild, moderate or severe.  If you are looking for an alternative to traditional treatments of mild to moderate sleep apnea (CPAP or BiPAP), an oral appliance can work quite well to alleviate the symptoms.


Snoring without other medical concerns is a quality of life issue. If you would like to get back into the same bedroom as your spouse, if you would like to not be the object of conversation around the breakfast table, we have oral appliances that can help you achieve these goals.
