Are you struggling to get enough sleep? Does your partner complain about your constant snoring?
Sleep apnea disrupts your breathing leaving you tired the following day, and it can even lead to more serious health issues.
At Fort Bend Dental in Richmond and Missouri City, TX, we can treat sleep apnea with a custom oral appliance so you can finally sleep.
What Is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder where the patient experiences interruptions in breathing that last anywhere from a few seconds to several minutes, generally followed by a loud gasp for air. These pauses in breathing can occur multiple times a night and increase your risk for high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke.

A Comfortable Solution For Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Fort Bend Dental designs custom-made oral appliances, which are a comfortable and easy-to-use solution for many patients suffering from sleep apnea. This specially designed mouthguard lets you get a good night's sleep while avoiding the hassles associated with CPAP machines, which are loud and bulky.
Using digital impressions and a 3D printer, our dentists can create a custom-fitted oral appliance for you to wear each night. These mouth guards bring your lower jaw slightly forward to keep your upper airway open while you sleep.
The oral appliance can be just as effective and is less invasive than a CPAP machine and results in greater patient compliance. You can quickly notice the benefits of a good night's sleep just by wearing this mouthguard each night.
