Sleep & Airway Health
“I didn’t know how bad I felt, until I started feeling better.” ~ Sleep apnea patient.
Did you know that sleep apnea is as widespread as diabetes? Untreated sleep apnea is associated with high blood pressure, weight gain, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and even depression.
Mild to moderate sleep apnea can be treated with oral appliances, in some cases eliminating the need for CPAP therapy. Oral appliances can also be used to treat snoring, to allow you and your partner to have a restful night’s sleep.
In addition, Dr. Talia Nutting is now treating people of all ages with a proprietary, non-invasive, non-surgical treatment option for mild to moderate sleep apnea, snoring and sleep disordered breathing.
Our team is also working with children who struggle to breathe well when they sleep by using a system of orthodontic appliances and therapies. These treatments may help the upper and lower jaws to develop more ideally and reshape the oral cavity. As the jaws develop more fully, the child’s airway may widen and expand allowing the child to breathe better and some symptoms may go away (such as bedwetting tossing and turning, night sweats, crooked teeth, underbites, inattentiveness, and allergy problems). When children can breathe properly, they can reach their full potential.
