At Sandalwood Dental, our Mississauga dentist, Dr. Paul Han provides relief for snoring & sleep apnea. Chronic loud snoring is a common symptom of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), which occurs when the upper airway is blocked to the point of causing significant airflow disruption, or even no airflow whatsoever for 10 seconds or more. This can be a dangerous situation.

Have you considered an oral appliance?

Snoring or sleep apnea can sometimes be treated with an oral appliance available at Sandalwood dental office that’s designed to hold the lower jaw forward during sleep. This repositioning of the jaw moves the tongue away from the back of the throat, reducing the potential for obstruction. This treatment is backed by a great deal of scientific evidence; it’s a good remedy to try before moving on to more complicated breathing devices or surgery to remove excess tissues in the throat.

Dr. Paul Han can fabricate, fit, adjust, monitor, and treat your snoring and sleep apnea problems. So if you or a loved one is experiencing any combination of the signs and symptoms mentioned above, we invite you to book a private consultation today!
