Smile Sleep Apnea in Denver, CO | Downtown Denver DentistIf you suffer from sleep apnea or snoring, your quality of life may be reduced because you are unable to get a good night’s rest. The same can likely be said for your bed partner. In fact, a sleep companion is generally the first person to notice that a loved one has a sleeping disorder.

Snoring is caused because your air passage is hindered and prohibits air to flow freely to the lungs. Habitual snoring can be related to sleep apnea, a more serious and sometimes deadly sleep disorder. Sleep apnea can have numerous negative consequences in your life including chronic tiredness, depression, memory and concentration impairment, and can lead to high blood pressure, stroke, heart failure and cardiovascular disease. Obviously, these maladies can lead to a poor quality of life and should be addressed immediately.

Sleep Apnea and Snoring Relief

If you suffer from sleep apnea and snoring, you may have visited a sleep specialist who directed you towards the options of a CPAP machine or surgery.

CPAP machines force air down your air passage via a tube and a mask. CPAP patients often complain about the noise of the machine, its difficulty to sleep with, and how uncomfortable it is. Most sleep professionals prescribe CPAP as the first solution for severe sleep apnea. However, if it is not worn it will not help.

Another option that may have been suggested to you is surgery. Surgery will cut off excess tissue and muscles that obstruct the air passage. Surgery should only be the final step if nothing else works.

Enter the Custom Oral Appliance

Dr. Radz helps Denver sleep apnea patients find relief in the most minimally invasive, comfortable way possible through the use of a custom oral appliance. These are custom-made according the contours of your mouth to make breathing easier for you while you sleep. They are designed to comfortably reposition the lower jaw forward thus opening the airway by moving the tongue forward and tightening the muscle in the back of the throat. These appliances have been shown to eliminate snoring in many patients and offer an improved quality of life without the need of a CPAP or surgery.

Oral Appliance Testimonial

I hope you are doing well. I certainly am since Dr. Radz and you recommended Somnomed. I must admit, I was a bit of a skeptic when first hearing of the concept and the successful results you were getting with regard to eliminating snoring and providing a better night’s sleep. After only one night of using the appliance both my wife Jill and I are believers. We were shocked that this simple devise, on the first night of use, completely stopped my freight train-like snoring and allowed myself and more importantly my wife a full night of uninterrupted sleep. In Jill’s words “Amazing! This is a marriage savor.”

I wish I would have known of a solution like this years ago. I was always told that I needed surgery to help with my snoring issues and none of it was guaranteed to work. Not only do I not snore, I wake up feeling rested and more energized. I have not felt this good in years. I have recommended it to at least five friends and family members that I know. It is a great device for it not only provides a simple non-invasive solution to snoring and a better night’s sleep for you and your love one, it doubles as a night guard for folks like myself who grind their teeth in the night. I am extremely happy that you and Dr. Radz recommended this great solution.

Thank you,

Patrick M.
