Sleep apnea is a potentially serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts. If you snore loudly and feel tired even after a full night’s sleep, you might have sleep apnea.

The most common type of sleep apnea is known as obstructive sleep apnea, which occurs when your throat muscles relax. Some common sleep apnea symptoms include:

  • Waking up with a very sore or dry throat
  • Loud snoring
  • Occasionally waking up with a choking or gasping sensation
  • Sleepiness or lack of energy during the day
  • Sleepiness while driving
  • Morning headaches
  • Restless sleep
  • Forgetfulness, mood changes

Sleep Apnea Treatment

Discover oral appliance therapy.

The American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) recommends oral appliance therapy as a first-line treatment for patients diagnosed with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea.

Where to get them

We fabricate our very own FDA-approved oral devices for a more precise and better fit as well as a reduced waiting time.

The AASM also recommends oral appliances for patients with severe obstructive sleep apnea who cannot tolerate or wear CPAP devices.

When to wear them

They are worn during your sleep and are similar to sports mouthguards or orthodontic appliances.

How they work

These appliances hold your lower jaw forward just enough to keep the airway open and prevent your tongue and muscles from collapsing and blocking your airway.

As a member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine…Click to open a new window to the official website of American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine…, Dr. Spoont has extended his knowledge and experience in this area to diagnose and treat sleep apnea accurately.

A definitive diagnosis of sleep apnea can be made only with a sleep study conducted during a visit to a sleep lab, usually overnight, or a home study performed with special equipment. Our office offers a one-night home sleep study, at no charge, as a convenient way to diagnose sleep apnea from the comfort of your own bed.

If you test positive, you will receive a detailed report signed by a physician who is a specialist in Sleep Medicine and guidance from Dr. Spoont on how to proceed.
