A dentist treating a sleep disorder? It’s not as strange as it may sound. Obstructive sleep apnea involves the slackening of muscles in the throat and mouth during sleep. Relaxing to the point of obstructing the flow of oxygen, sufferers of sleep apnea commonly exhibit the symptoms of loud or frequent snoring—much to the besetment of their bed partners. With a custom-fitted oral appliance, worn during sleep, the soft tissues of the throat can be kept from collapsing, enabling safe passage of air throughout the night’s rest.
