Sleep Better, Feel Healthier, Live Longer

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is one of the most prevalent forms of sleep disorders. It occurs when the soft tissues in your throat relax, obstructing your airway during sleep, and leading to frequent apneic episodes, which hinder your sleep. You (or your sleeping partner) might notice that you are snoring, waking up gasping for air, have morning headaches, or dry mouth.

We work with a sleep doctor to facilitate sleep testing, which is how you will receive a diagnosis. Dr. Hotait has completed a mini-residency in dental sleep medicine at Tufts University and is a Diplomate of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine.

Once you have been diagnosed, your dentist will provide an oral appliance designed to keep your airway open. When compared to a CPAP machine, an oral appliance offers several advantages:

  • Discreet – Tailored to fit your mouth, a custom sleep guard is quiet and doesn’t require a mask. It minimizes disruption to your partner’s rest.
  • Easy – Unlike the CPAP, which relies on electrical outlets and special equipment, the sleep apnea appliance is simple to wear. It’s also much more convenient for travel.
  • Comfortable – The sleep guard is comfortable and allows for natural breathing. In contrast, CPAP machines often cause dry mouth and discomfort, making them challenging to use.
