Stop Snoring With A Snoring Mouthpiece in Brentwood TN
Dr. Poss treats TMJ disorder, sleep apnea, and snoring with some of the most advanced technology available at his Brentwood dentist office near Nashville. This allows him to diagnose individual patients accurately and treat them effectively.
Sleep Apnea/Snoring Treatment Technology
Obstructive sleep apnea, or OSA, occurs when an individual suffers from blockages of the airway as they sleep. This causes snoring and disrupts sleeping patterns, which can be exhausting for the sufferer and those around them. It can also lead to serious health problems including heart attacks, strokes, and diabetes. For this reason, Dr. Poss utilizes highly developed computer technology in Brentwood TN to treat sleep apnea and to stop snoring.
- Introducing SomnoDent | Dr. Poss is the first, and currently, the only, dentist in Nashville to offer this incredible compliance recording technology. While we recognize that the CPAP is an ideal treatment for many of those diagnosed with sleep apnea, 40% of sleep apnea patients are CPAP intolerant, and CPAP is impractical for transportation workers. For patients who can’t be treated with CPAP, we provide the SomnoDent appliance. The SomnoDent appliance works with compliance, which means it records the head position and hours worn. SomnoDent delivers daily summaries that are easily accessible and allow us to track each patient’s progress and prescribe the right treatment.
- Stop Snoring | The various appliances we prescribe to those with sleep apnea can also be used to treat basic snoring. If you or a loved one snore during the night, you may be interested in trying a snoring mouthpiece. A snoring mouthpiece will keep you from snoring and help you enjoy a better night’s rest.
