Sleep Apnea & Snoring
Our Grand Rapids sleep apnea dentist is available to help you tackle sleep disorders such as sleep apnea and snoring.
These disorders can disrupt your life and cause more serious problems if not diagnosed and treated properly.
Our family dentist will be able to offer you several safe and effective solutions to relieve snoring and mild obstructive sleep disorder.
Sleep apnea and snoring can be potentially serious disorders, causing breathing to stop and start during sleep. Our Grand Rapids dentist can provide you with safe and effective options to reduce or eliminate these frustrating and dangerous issues.
Obstructive sleep apnea, which occurs when throat muscles relax, is treated with oral devices designed to open your throat by bringing your jaw forward. In severe cases, patients may require a CPAP mechanical appliance. Follow up with your Grand Rapids dentist every six months to ensure your dental sleep apnea appliance properly fits.
Once you find the right fit, you’ll still need to follow up with our dentist every six months during the first year and then at least once a year after that to ensure that the fit is still good and to reassess your signs and symptoms.
Dr. Ritzema DDS at Complete Health Dentistry is dedicated to helping patients achieve their best oral and overall health through comprehensive dental treatments. If you are interested in learning more, give our dentist in Grand Rapids a call at (616) 458-7267.
