It's estimated that more than 40 million adults in America have some form of sleep-disordered breathing, which is also known as obstructive sleep apnea or nocturnal hypoventilation. This condition is defined as long pauses in breathing or extremely shallow breathing during sleep due to compressed airways. It not only interferes with the quality of the patient's sleep, but is connected with other health problems as well such as fatigue, depression, headaches, diabetes, high blood pressure, weight gain, and more.
At Michigan Sleep Network, Dr. Daniel Burton and Dr. Matthew J. Vertin specialize in providing patients with customized oral appliance therapy as a better alternative to CPAP machines to help improve patient's breathing as they sleep. These oral appliances don't involve any wires or tubes like a CPAP machine, and simply prop the jaw open in the correct way to keep the airways open while the patient is sleeping.
