Sleep Appliances

Sleep soundly at night without grinding your teeth, snoring, or experiencing breathing troubles.

Treating Obstructive Sleep Apnea in Novi, MI

It’s recommended that the average adult receive 7-9 hours of sleep each night to maintain their health and function throughout the day. But when that sleep is disrupted by excessive snoring, painful teeth grinding, and breathing problems, it can be difficult to maintain your daily routine without yawning and losing focus. These symptoms may indicate a potential underlying condition known as sleep apnea, a serious sleep disorder that affects millions of individuals worldwide.

At My Family Dental Novi, we understand how important a good night’s sleep is. We want each of our patients to experience sound sleep and peaceful dreams. That’s why we provide cutting-edge sleep apnea solutions and treatments in Novi, MI, and the surrounding areas. Schedule an appointment with us today to have your obstructive sleep apnea device custom-fitted to your tooth and jaw shape.

Our Targeted Solutions for Sleep Apnea

When it comes to sleep apnea, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution. There are various appliances, from CPAP machines to implants, available on the market to treat sleep apnea, but My Family Dental Novi takes a different approach. We offer patients oral appliances that resemble retainers and are specifically designed to alleviate the symptoms of sleep apnea.

ClearDream®

This dorsal oral appliance is designed to treat snoring and mild to moderate sleep apnea in adults. Using “fins” on the lower arch to advance the mandible, ClearDream creates additional tongue space, better airflow, and increased patient comfort.

Precision-Fit® dreamTAP

The dreamTAP mouth aligner is a more advanced sleep apnea treatment option that features exterior hardware that locks into place when in use. With three hook sizes and a 15mm range of adjustment, patients can vary their mandible positioning depending on their symptoms. Additionally, this sleep apnea device offers a mouth shield to promote nasal breathing, improving snoring habits.

Tap 3 Oral Appliance

The Tap 3 oral appliance is a comfortable, customizable sleep apnea treatment option that operates similarly to the dreamTAP. This proven solution is an effective alternative to CPAP machines, helping you get to sleep and stay asleep every night!

Elastic Mandibular Advancement (EMA)

The EMA oral appliance uses elastic straps attached to the back of the retainer to reposition the jaw during sleep. Engineered to advance the mandible and widen the bite, it facilitates improved airflow during sleep. With nine strap lengths and four elastic tension options available, the EMA offers customizable solutions tailored to your specific sleep apnea needs.

Frequently Asked Questions About Sleep Apnea

Getting a good night’s rest requires more than just sound sleeping. It involves understanding and addressing any potential issues that may disrupt your sleep. To help you navigate common questions and concerns about sleep apnea and our solutions, we’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions.

Everyone’s body reacts differently to sleep apnea treatment, but on average, you can expect to notice significant changes in your mood and sleep quality within three weeks of consistent treatment.

If you’re unsure whether you’re suffering from sleep apnea, pay attention to signs such as loud snoring and frequent disruptions in breathing during sleep. These disruptions can lead to feelings of fatigue and daytime sleepiness despite spending what seems like a full night in bed. Additionally, you may experience the following:

  • Loud snoring
  • Episodes of stopped breathing during sleep
  • Gasping or choking in the middle of the night
  • Morning headaches
  • Insomnia
  • Dry mouth or sore throat when you wake up
  • Mood changes

If you have concerns about irregular sleep patterns caused by sleep apnea, don’t hesitate to contact My Family Dental Novi today. We’d be happy to discuss your oral appliance therapy options with you.

When you suffer from obstructive sleep apnea, your upper airway is partially or completely blocked during your sleep cycle. The reduced airflow triggers your brain to wake you up just enough to keep breathing, often triggering loud bouts of snoring.

Mandibular sleep appliances improve sleep quality by pulling your lower jaw forward. This allows you to rest your tongue forward in the mouth, creating more space for airflow in the back of your throat. Each sleep apnea treatment is custom-fitted to your teeth and adjustable as your jaw shifts over time.
