Do you suffer from sleep apnea? Is it time to have your sleep apnea treated by a trained professional? Get the orthodontic treatment you need for your sleep apnea or snoring problems from Dr. Brett Gluck in Alpharetta. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine has recommended different dental devices for patients that suffer from mild or moderate sleep apnea.
The two most common dental devices for treating sleep apnea are:
• Mandibular Advancement Device (MAD) - The MAD is similar to a sports mouth guard and it is the most commonly used for sleep apnea. The mouth guard gently directs the lower jaw forward and downward, keeping the airway open. This device should be fitted by trained orthodontists like Dr. Brett Gluck.
• Tongue Retraining Device (TRD) - The TRD is a splint that holds the tongue in place. By keeping the tongue in place, airways remain as open as possible, helping to treat sleep apnea.
Research shows that if a patient has short term success with a properly fitted MAD or TRD, it is usually a strong indicator for positive long term results. Occasional adjustments can be made by Dr. Gluck.
