The fundamental cause of sleep apnea is an obstructed airway. Laser treatments can help to raise the soft palate, but many patients find that they need additional help to fully open their airway and breathe freely at night. For years, Dr. Krish has addressed this issue with a custom orthotic appliance. And she now offers the newest class of therapeutic oral appliances that can provide a true cure for snoring! Use these next-generation appliances to completely reshape your jaw and create more space for your airway, providing immediate snoring relief now and a complete cure for sleep apnea with sustained use.
In much the same way orthotic inserts are prescribed by podiatrists to help patients with ankle and arch discomfort, Dr. Krish prescribes a custom-made, patented orthotic appliance built specifically for you as an individual patient. The device spreads your oral cavity to fully open your airway, giving you immediate relief from sleep apnea and allowing you to sleep throughout the night free of snoring.
Oral appliance manufacturers have recently achieved the next step in sleep apnea treatment: therapeutic appliances. These devices open the airway to give you immediate relief from snoring, but take the additional step of actually addressing the underlying causes of your snoring by reshaping the bones inside your mouth. During the course of treatment over 18-24 months, your airway is gradually and permanently expanded to create a more open airway. The final result: a true cure for obstructive sleep apnea.
