Dental Appliances for Sleep Apnea in Temple Terrace, FL
Are you one of the many people affected by sleep apnea or another sleep disorder, hindering you from getting a proper night’s rest? Beltran Dental Surgery specializes in dental appliances for sleep apnea. We’re aiming to improve our patients’ overall health through better sleep and comfort. If you’re not getting a good night’s rest, it’s affecting you in more ways than just being groggy in the morning. With oral appliance therapy, we can help treat your snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. It works by helping reposition your jaw or tongue to open up a constricted or collapsed airway, causing snoring and improper sleep.

Why Dental Appliances Over CPAP Machines?
Many people who suffer from sleep apnea struggle to wear the CPAP mask that forces air into your lungs as it’s cumbersome and uncomfortable to sleep with. Dental appliances are significantly less intrusive, working by bringing the lower jaw or tongue forward to open your airways. These can then improve your overall health, blood pressure, and daytime sluggishness. At Beltran Dental Surgery, we primarily use the Silent Nite sl® appliance. As the most popular dental sleep appliance, it has been proven successful in reducing and, in some cases preventing, disruptive, unhealthy sleep apnea and snoring. It’s flexible and comfortable, allowing you to sleep comfortably without wearing a large CPAP mask. It works by positioning your lower jaw slightly forward with a Side-Link connector. We custom fit each Silent Nite sl appliance for the perfect fit. They’re made of soft, thin layers of BPA-free plastics. Additionally, the connectors are easily interchangeable to allow for the most comfortable sleep.
