Sleep Better, Live Longer With Effective Sleep Apnea Treatment
Snoring and sleep apnea are no joke. In fact, it really is a matter of life and death. Sleep apnea is strongly linked with heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, depression, and many other health problems. Often the main culprit is obstruction or collapse of the airway during sleep.

Frequently Asked Questions About Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Sleep apnea is a common problem with a variety of contributing factors. Learn more about obstructive sleep apnea and find out if you may be a candidate for a sleep appliance.
“Sleep Dentists” work in partnership with sleep physicians to treat snoring and sleep apnea by making special oral appliances worn during sleep that help position and support the jaw and open the airway. These are especially helpful for people who can’t or won’t use their CPAP machines during sleep, for whatever reason.
Traditionally, finding out if you have sleep apnea involved spending a night in a sleep center, covered in wires and being watched by a sleep technician.
Modern technology has allowed us to use at-home sleep studies for most people who want to learn more about their sleep. We'll send you home with a small device that you wear to bed in the comfort of your own home. Simply return the device the next day to get your results.
If you can't seem to make yourself use your CPAP, you're not alone. Research shows us that, while CPAP is one of the most effective ways to treat sleep apnea, more than 50% of people prescribed a CPAP don't use it regularly enough to make a difference.
Dental sleep appliances are a great alternative to CPAP because they are simple, portable, and easy to clean. Dental sleep appliances work by positioning your jaw in a way that prevents your tongue and throat from collapsing when you sleep. No more mask, no more machine, no more CPAP-induced sinus infections. Now that's what we call a real solution!
I know that my dental health is important to my overall health and I have Dr. Ostler to thank for caring enough about his patients to go beyond what would normally be a dentist’s area of expertise, interest and responsibility. I’m sure my sleep apnea is but one example of his broad approach to patient care and I am very grateful to him and to his wonderful team!"
