The best treatment depends on the severity of the condition. For mild to moderate sleep apnea cases and for patients who are CPAP intolerant, an oral appliance is recommended. This oral appliance is different from an over-the-counter mouthpiece or night guard. The oral appliance is specially designed to keep the airway open during sleep by moving the lower jawbone slightly forward so that the airway is not blocked and the Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) is in an ideal resting position.

Other solutions, not offered by our practice, include CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) or similar equipment which helps to keep the airway open during sleep by ensuring that the pressure of the air available for breathing is slightly higher than that of atmospheric pressure. A surgery might be recommended for patients who have extra growth of soft tissues in the oral cavity or a poorly positioned lower jawbone which may be the cause of the blocked airway.

Dr. Krish was extremely helpful in overcoming my sleep apnea. The oral device she created for me has almost eliminated my snoring entirely and allows me to sleep restfully each night. My chronic afternoon drowsiness is gone, and I have energy all day. Dr. Krish’s assistants Elvira and Shelby are friendly, competent and professional. I highly recommend Dr. Krish and her team. by Aaron G.
I have had such a wonderful experience starting day one. Dr. Krish and the staff are very friendly and try to accommodate your every need. Dr. Krish and the staff were able to walk me through every part of my treatment plan so that I understood everything clearly. I've enjoyed being treated by Dr. krish and can say I will miss her and the staff once my treatment plan is complete! by Gabby I.
I used to wake up constantly with headaches and occasionally had migraines. Dr. Krish recommended a night appliance for me to wear at night to prevent me from grinding my teeth. My jaw has not hurt since the treatment started and I have not had one headache or migraine. I greatly appreciate all that Dr. Krish has done for me to relieve me of pain. by Khelia G.
