Sleep apnea can rob a person of their quality rest, their day-to-day wellbeing, and their overall health — that’s why it’s crucial to find the treatment plan that works best for you. At Soldotna Dental Arts, Dr. O’Donoghue offers dedicated therapy in the form of custom-made oral appliances. He’s also happy to partner with excellent surgeons throughout the greater Kenai Peninsula area for more extensive surgical intervention, such as maxillomandibular advancement surgery. To schedule a consultation today, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is caused by a blockage in the airway that leads to dangerous interruptions in breathing during rest. In order to prevent this from happening, we recommend that patients with mild to moderate symptoms use a custom-made oral appliance. These devices will comfortably reposition the jaw and/or tongue to prevent soft tissue collapse, helping the wearer breathe without worry until morning.
