Sleep apnea is a disorder that causes you to repeatedly stop breathing while you sleep. This is the result of your muscles relaxing and your airway closing up as you inhale. Sleep apnea is considered a severe condition that can lead to other health complications so Cape Cod Dental offers sleep apnea oral appliances to help patients with this problem. With these custom-made dental devices, improving the quality of your sleep and overall wellness is within reach. Contact our practice in Wareham, MA today if you would like to learn more, and schedule an appointment with Dr. Fadi Zaknoun.

Sleep apnea treatment from Cape Cod Dental uses what is referred to as oral appliance therapy (OAT), which may be quite an effective therapy for sleep apnea. A sleep apnea oral appliance, similar to a mouth guard, is a customized device that fits in your mouth at night. The main difference is that rather than protecting your teeth from harm, it gently pulls the jaw into a forward position to keep your airway open. Dr. Zaknoun will work with you to be sure that you receive the most suitable one for you. He may conduct an assessment of your teeth, jaw, tongue, and airway. You'll also have oral x-rays performed so that he can take detailed impressions of your teeth for your oral appliance.

The staff is always friendly, punctual and caring. Dr. Zaknoun is very professional and knowledgeable.

If your breathing was interrupted constantly every day from obstructing your airway, you would seek treatment immediately. When the same thing happens in your sleep, it can be easy to put off as you won't remember it when you wake up. If you wake up exhausted and believe you might be suffering from sleep apnea, we urge you to book an appointment with Dr. Zaknoun at Cape Cod Dental in Wareham, MA.

About Us
Are oral sleep appliances comfortable to wear?

With proper fitting and adjustment, many individuals find oral sleep appliances to be comfortable and well-tolerated during sleep. Some may experience minor discomfort or temporary side effects such as jaw soreness or excessive salivation initially, but these usually subside as the individual becomes accustomed to wearing the appliance.

Can oral sleep appliances be used for severe sleep apnea?

While oral sleep appliances are most commonly recommended for individuals in Wareham, MA with mild to moderate OSA, they may also be considered as an adjunctive treatment for some individuals with severe OSA who cannot tolerate or comply with CPAP therapy. However, the effectiveness of oral sleep appliances in severe cases may vary, and consultation with our team at Cape Cod Dental is recommended to determine the most suitable treatment approach.

How should I care for my oral sleep appliance?

Proper care and maintenance are essential to prolonging the lifespan of an oral sleep appliance and ensuring its effectiveness. Appliances should be cleaned daily using a toothbrush and mild soap or denture cleaner, rinsed thoroughly with water, and allowed to air dry before storage. It's also important to follow any specific care instructions provided by our staff.
