Sleep-disordered breathing and airway dentistry

There are a lot of conditions that are linked to one’s dental and oral health. This includes sleep-disordered breathing, such as snoring or obstructive sleep apnea. With airway-focused dentistry, patients with sleep-disordered breathing can find sleep apnea and snoring treatment with the help of our team at RK Dentistry. Dr. Richard J. Koeltl and his team in Danville, California, can assist with both!

What is airway-focused dentistry?

Airway-focused dentistry is a complete form of dental care and treatment focusing on the patient’s overall mouth, jaw, face, and airway. By taking a holistic approach to oral health, we can help treat more than just teeth-related issues in our patients! We believe in providing individualized care for patients who come into our practice with concerns such as snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. We can assist with oral appliance therapy if you have been referred to our practice after a diagnosis of snoring or obstructive sleep apnea.

How oral appliances can address sleep-disordered breathing

Oral appliance therapy for sleep-disordered breathing is a non-invasive, discreet treatment option to help reduce snoring or obstructive sleep apnea symptoms. We create custom oral appliances that fit the patient’s mouth comfortably and securely while gently positioning their jaw forward to keep the airway open throughout the night. This can allow patients to experience a better overall quality of life due to improved restorative sleep!
