Snoring can be a sign of a larger issue known as sleep apnea. This is a problem that affects people throughout the Highlands Ranch CO area.
Sleep apnea occurs whenever you experience pauses in breathing, and it can lead to a higher risk of serious medical problems like heart disease.
At Highlands Ranch Smiles, our doctors are trained in all aspects of general dentistry. Dr. McCabe can helps sleep apnea patients without the use of a CPAP machine. We have a major issue with compliance for the CPAP, as patients find it uncomfortable.
In many cases of sleep apnea, we can use a comfortable oral appliance instead of the CPAP to treat the issue. The appliance sits on the lower jaw and keep the airway open while you sleep.
If you’re having problems sleeping or have been told you snore, give us a call tonight at 720-644-8186.
