Resolve Your Sleep Problems & Restore Your Health

Sleep apnea is caused by tissue in the back of your throat blocking your airway. If the tissue collapses as you breathe during the night, it blocks off your airway. Once the airway is blocked, you will be jolted awake from your sleep. This can happen as many as hundreds of times a night. To determine if you have sleep apnea, Dr. DiBona will:

  • Perform an examination to check for physical evidence of the condition
  • Review your medical history and your family’s medical history
  • Confirm a diagnosis with a sleep study; these in-home and off-site studies can also rule out other sleep disorders

If your study results confirm sleep apnea, Dr. DiBona will have an oral appliance custom-made to fit comfortably in your mouth. You’ll wear the appliance while you sleep to move your jaw forward and keep your airway open. When compared to a CPAP device, another common sleep apnea treatment, an appliance is:

  • More Comfortable – An appliance fits in your mouth much like an athletic mouthguard. There is no mask over your face.
  • More Convenient – Unlike a CPAP, you won’t need batteries, electricity, or supplies like distilled water to use your appliance.
  • Less Intrusive – You and your bed partner will likely both find it easier to adjust to a sleep apnea appliance than to a CPAP.
