Snoring & Sleep Apnea
Your Snoring and Sleep Apnea Solution in West Caldwell
Are you tired of constantly being tired?
Have you noticed someone who snores at night?
Do you or a loved one wake up gasping for breath?
An estimated 18 million Americans have Sleep Apnea, and 80-90% remain undiagnosed. Undiagnosed Airway Problems such as Sleep Apnea or Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome can impact the productivity and quality of life, cause significant health problems, and increase risks of serious health conditions.
Dental Sleep Medicine is the treatment of Airway Problems using such therapies as Oral Sleep Appliances or Laser Sleep Therapy. Oral Sleep Appliances and Laser Sleep Therapy such as NightLase are as effective and much more comfortable than the prescribed and often not-used awkward CPAP machines.
Dr. DalBon is a proud member of American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine and one of the ONLY dentists in NJ trained and certified in the NightLase procedure.
Snoring and sleep apnea are more than just a nuisance.
Serious, long term health issues could also result such as:
~ High Blood Pressure ~ Diabetes
~ Stroke ~ Heart Attack
~ Dementia ~ Acid Reflux
How Snoring Happens:
During sleep, muscles and soft tissues in the throat and mouth relax, shrinking the airway. This increases the velocity of airflow during breathing. As the velocity of required air is increased, soft tissues like the soft palate and uvula vibrate. The vibrations of these tissues result in "noisy breathing" or snoring.
For the majority of snorers, the most affordable, non-invasive, comfortable and effective snoring solution remains a dentist-prescribed, mandibular repositioning device such as a
dream TAP Snore Guard
How The dream TAP Snore Guard Works:
The mandibular repositioning device or MRD positions the lower jaw forward using special connectors that are attached to upper and lower splints. This devices is flexible, thin and comfortable, and exhibits documented clinical success in mitigating or even preventing the disruptive, unhealthy effects of snoring and sleep apnea.
For more serious cases of Sleep Apnea, Dr. DalBon may recommend NightLase Anti-Sleep Apnea Laser Therapy
