Sleep Apnea is a serious, potentially life-threatening condition where air is unable to flow in or out of the airway for brief periods during sleep; many people don’t even realize they have it!
Symptoms may include morning headaches, lack of concentration during the day, and even low sex drive. Also, for the more than 18 million American sufferers, sleep apnea increases the risk of irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure, heart attach, and stroke.
Snoring can also cause sleep disruption, it is a problem shared by a staggering 87 million Americans, and is an annoyance to many others!
We monitor your sleep patterns with a less intrusive alternative to a CPAP machine!
Our goal is to offer patients, who are suffering with Sleep Apnea, and other night time problems, a viable, less intrusive alterative to a lifetime of the annoying bedtime ritual of hooking up to a mask and a CPAP machine! Following a thorough in-office investigative examination to determine eligibility, we have the technology to monitor our patients with an Embletta X100.
The Embletta X100 system is specifically developed to diagnose sleep disorders in the home environment, without the need to attend an overnight sleep clinic. The detailed results that we obtain from the Embletta study provide us with the information we need to develop and prepare a dental sleep appliance specifically designed for each patient’s individual need.

Bruxism is the description for grinding and clenching your teeth. The force of the grinding or clenching causes pressure on the muscles, tissues and other structure around your jaw. This can lead to jaw joint disorders, jaw pain and soreness, headaches, earaches, damaged teeth and other problems.
Migraines affect 28 million Americans, one in every 4 U.S. households has a migraine sufferer! Bite-related migraines are often caused by clenching your teeth during sleep which puts tremendous strain on the muscles of the head, neck and face.
