Today we live in a health conscious society. People of all ages recognize the importance of a healthy lifestyle: a balanced diet, regular exercise, plenty of water, and proper rest. But did you know that good oral hygiene is also a vital step toward a healthier life? Recent research suggests that bacteria and inflammation associated with gum disease may play a role in these other health issues.

Sleep Apnea? We Can Help!

sleep-button400Do you think you or a family member may have Sleep Apnea? Intolerant to the CPAP machine?

Dr. Lonn Brander can help! Take the Sleep Test online now!

Dr. Brander can make you an oral appliance that works just like the CPAP machine but is much more comfortable!

Although CPAP is considered the ‘gold star’ standard for patients with severe sleep apnea, if you don’t wear it, it’s not helping. For patients who suffer from mild to severe sleep apnea, oral appliance therapy is a popular method for treatment. People from across the globe are visiting dental practices for screenings and fitted for oral appliances.

An oral sleep appliance is a custom-fabricated mouthpiece similar to an orthodontic retainer or sports mouth-guard worn over the teeth.  The appliance works by comfortably repositioning the lower jaw and tongue forward or by restraining the tongue to keep the airway from collapsing during sleep.  Snoring and sleep apnea are then effectively managed and good quality sleep can be achieved without interruption.
