Our office provides an alternative therapy to CPAP, an oral appliance (OA) that fits into your mouth, holds your jaw slightly forward, maintaining the airway open and preventing collapse during sleep. The most current Medical Guidelines state that an OA is First Line Therapy for Snoring and should be considered a “Standard of Care” for Any Severity of Sleep Apnea (Mild, Moderate or Severe) if the patient cannot tolerate CPAP, or simply prefers an OA to CPAP.
Our facility is also a Research and Learning Centre, hosting Continuing Education programs ranging from Introductory through to a 4-Day Mini Residency, all created with the intention of increasing Airway Awareness amongst Physicians, Dentists, other Clinicians, Patients and Human Resources Officers, and also to creating a workforce of Dentists that can participate in the management of Breathing Related Sleep Disorders.
Our Facility is Accredited by the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine and works to the highest evidence based standards. Callie, Elaine and I have worked together over 25 years are are dedicated to the management of Sleep Disordered Breathing through Oral Appliance Therapy.
