Sleep Apnea & Snoring Treatment Options

Medical Sleep Devices

We make Mandibular Advancement Devices like this one to gently open the airway by pulling the mandible forward. We can bill almost all medical insurance through our sister company, Western Sleep Solutions. These devices are incredibly effective at treating sleep apnea and snoring. Patients are highly compliant with them due to their comfort and ease. Ditch the CPAP, hose and forced air with a mandibular advancement device. We can scan your teeth and have this custom device within three weeks made just for you.

Maxillary Expansion

The goal with maxillary expansion in adults is to treat the root cause of airway issues, which is usually a maxilla that is too small, thereby forcing the tongue and soft palate back into the airway space. We have several orthodontic options for maxillary expansion. The easiest one is using Candid Clear Aligner Therapy. This is a product that is very easy to use and effective at actually remodeling bone. They have an airway specific protocol that Dr. Hilary uses along with the Candid Airway Orthodontists to specifically design a case to meet your specific needs.

Myofunctional Therapy

Did you know that myofunctional therapy can cut the number of times that sleep apnea patients stop breathing an hour and a half?

As we make room for the tongue with expansion, we believe in treating root causes with learning proper tongue posture and strengthening exercises.
