Sleep Apnea Treatment

Sleep Apnea is the serious yet often undiagnosed condition of the cessation of breathing during sleep. This stoppage of breathing (apnea) can stress the body and be a sign of underlying medical conditions.

Drs. Chapel and Keller have received additional training in the area of sleep apnea treatment. Through the use of the SomnoDent device by SomnoMed®, we can eliminate the need for your CPAP machine.  These convenient aligners work by aligning the jaw in a forward position to open the airway.  This treatment is non-invasive and only requires two visits: impressions for the aligners and delivery.  Adjustment appointments may be needed to ensure your comfortability with the appliance. In many situations medical insurance will cover much of the cost.
