Obstructive Sleep Apnea Treatments in Oak Lawn, IL - CPAP Machines & Mouthguards - Get Snoring Relief
Do you or a member of your family snore while sleeping? Suffering from heavy fatigue caused by a night of interrupted sleep? These may be symptoms of sleep apnea. At Dental Care Oak Lawn, Dr. Forrest Tower provides a comprehensive solution to sleep apnea using dental appliances that help patients finally achieve a full night's rest. In fact, Dr. Tower is one of the few dentists certified to treat sleep apnea in the Oak Lawn area.
Dr. Tower was an early member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, and has given seminars to other dentists about sleep apnea and its treatment. He offers alternative treatment for those who use or need a CPAP machine. Comfortable mouthpieces, similar to an orthodontic retainer or a sports mouthguard, are used to position the jaw for maximum airflow. These devices prevent the jaw from repositioning while sleeping which is what causes the tongue and other tissues to obstruct breathing. Most people can finally get off their CPAP! About 20% will use a mouth device in combination with their CPAP to make breathing even easier.
Snoring is a form of obstructive sleep apnea and is usually very disruptive to the sleep of one's spouse. Dr. Tower's treatment can often eliminate snoring entirely. Your medical insurance may completely pay for these treatments in our office.
