Sleep Apnea Treatment

If our dentists suspect you may have sleep apnea, our team will coordinate treatment with a sleep specialist to ensure you get the treatment you need! We perform mild-to-moderate sleep apnea treatment right here at our Findlay Dental office, and can refer patients for sleep studies for a closer look and diagnosis.

Patients who require sleep apnea treatment are typically provided with either a CPAP machine or an oral appliance to manage their symptoms.

A CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) machine is the most common treatment for most people suffering from obstructive sleep apnea. The CPAP machine has a small air blower connected to a cushioned plastic mask that covers your nose. The blower forces air through a flexible hose into the mask to help keep your airways open while you sleep. We make custom oral appliances at Anderson Family Dentist, that are designed to open airways during sleep.

Generally, patients with mild to moderate sleep apnea prefer oral appliances to bulky CPAP machines. For whatever sleep apnea treatment you require, we are happy to partner with you every step of the way!
