Dr. Smith offers alternative sleep devices if you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea but have difficulty wearing a CPAP mask. Instead of wearing the CPAP mask, one alternative is The Moses®. It is made specifically for you and works by moving your lower jaw and tongue forward, thereby creating more space for you to properly breathe during the night. The increased airway passage allows for better breathing and decreased snoring.
The Moses® snoring and obstructive sleep apnea appliance is new and FDA approved to help you obtain a restful night sleep for you. If you are a snorer or you have been told that you snore, the Moses® appliance could be right for you.
We work with your medical professionals to determine the best device for you. If you are interested in further information and an evaluation for a sleep apnea or snoring device, call 509-325-0233 to schedule an appointment.
Teeth grinding can be very damaging to your oral health. It can cause excessive tooth wear, headaches, chipped teeth, jaw pain, and many other painful symptoms. While many people grind their teeth at night, some grind their teeth during the day as well. If you are experiencing symptoms and grinding, call us to schedule an appointment. We can custom make a night guard to prevent tooth damage and minimize the symptoms of clenching and grinding.
