Obstructive sleep apnea happens when the airway becomes blocked by soft tissue or your tongue when sleeping. It causes interruptions in your breathing and can potentially be very dangerous. You can be more prone to suffer a stroke and even develop high blood pressure.
A dental nightguard can be a suitable solution for resolving your sleep apnea. They are designed to adjust your jaw and tongue, allowing for proper airflow while you get your beauty sleep. Our dental nightguards are expertly crafted with precise measurements of your mouth.
