Dental Sleep Medicine

Don’t ignore your snore!

Did you know that more than 20% of all adults suffer from some form of sleep disorder but ONLY 10% of those people are ever diagnosed?

SNORING is the most common symptom of a serious medical condition called sleep apnea. Sleep apnea can lead to serious health problems like:

  • Heart Attack
  • Strokes
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension

MOST PEOPLE who snore are never tested for sleep disorders and never get help. Morrison Dental Associates in Savannah is now offering sleep apnea screenings to help our patients get the treatment they need to beat sleep disorders. At Morrison Dental, we can evaluate your symptoms during an in-office visit and using an AT HOME sleep test. Certain types of sleep apnea can be treated with a minimally invasive oral appliance. These appliances are also recommended for sleep apnea patients who are unwilling or unable to tolerate the use of C-PAP machines. Our cost-effective treatment plan to successfully manage mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea utilizes oral appliance therapy, which has been proven to be the least expensive, least intrusive treatment to reduce the symptoms and effects of sleep apnea.
