Enjoy Sweet Dreams Again

As part of our general dentistry, we want you to be as healthy as you can be. One of the ways we can do that is by creating a SomnoDent oral appliance for you.

This is custom-made to fit your teeth. It will help you adjust to sleeping with something similar to an athletic mouthguard in your mouth. It works by pulling your lower jaw forward slightly. In doing so, you are able to breathe naturally, which helps you get the deep, healthy sleep you need and deserve.

Many people with this sleep disorder are given CPAP machines as their first attempt at treatment. This involves wearing a mask that pushes air into your airways to keep them open. Unfortunately, around half the people given a CPAP stop using it. Some people don’t like wearing a mask. Others don’t like the feeling of the air pressure, and some are bothered by the sound the machine makes.

Whether you have been recently diagnosed or you are having difficulty using your CPAP, contact us to find out how an oral appliance could help you.

Experience Healthy Sleep Again

Snoring may be the most noticeable symptom of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), but it may distract from bigger concerns. Daytime sleepiness is often a sign of sleep deprivation. People with OSA can stop breathing dozens or even hundreds of times every night. In addition to preventing deep sleep, this can raise your risk of high blood pressure, heart attacks, and strokes.

If you have or suspect you may have untreated sleep apnea in Frankfort, KY, our office wants to help. Call (502) 783-6322 or contact us online to request a consultation at Bell & Bell Dentistry.
