Our Sleep Apnea Solutions
With all the evidence pointing towards the negative consequences associated with sleep apnea, it’s important to prioritize your health and get the help you need. As a member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, the American Breathing and Sleep Academy, and the American Academy of Laser Dentistry, Dr. Lawrence can provide a solution.
Thanks to his experience, he has the skills necessary to tackle your condition from every angle for a well-rounded treatment that will yield the results you’ve been looking for. Dr. Lawrence may recommend the use of an oral appliance as an effective and convenient way to treat sleep apnea. An oral appliance works by gently shifting your jaw forward and keeping your tongue in a neutral position, thereby keeping your airway open.
In addition to oral appliance therapy, Dr. Lawrence may suggest NightLase® laser therapy to tighten the collagen in your throat which enables the airway to stay open. Dr. Lawrence bases his treatment methods on your unique condition and specific needs.
During your initial consultation, he’ll perform a thorough examination and provide you with a customized treatment plan that will help you on your road to a quality night of rest, for both you and your loved one.
You’re in This Together
While it may be difficult to look past the negative consequences of sleep apnea and sleep deprivation, there are ways to cope until your customized oral appliance arrives. While the symptoms can be unbearable, what else can you do? Many patients have found comfort by following a few tips, including:
- Sleep separately a few nights a week
- Sleep head to toe
- Use a noise-canceling device, headphones, or noisemaker
- The partner who doesn’t snore should go to sleep first
If you’re still unable to get the sleep you need, ask Dr. Lawrence at your appointment and he’ll provide some helpful tips in the meantime.
