For both snoring and sleep apnea, the treatment concept is the same. In cases where sleep apnea is suspected, your dentist will first request a sleep study report from your physician to determine if you are an appropriate candidate for treatment. Molds of your upper and lower teeth are obtained and sent to a special lab. The lab will make a special device called a Thornton Adjustable Positioner (TAP) which fits over your teeth and gently repositions your lower jaw in a more forward position. This opens up your airway and allows air to move more freely as you breathe, virtually eliminating the snoring sounds and allowing for improved breathing during sleep. For snoring, a similar device is made. At Prestige Dental, Dr. Bouzoghlanian has experience in evaluating for snoring and sleep apnea, and making the Thornton Adjustable Positioner (TAP) or other snoring devices for you.
