In addition to continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) devices, the practice now offers some of the latest fitted oral appliance models. The new devices are designed to address specific causes of obstructive sleep apnea, and offer a more comfortable and reliable option than CPAPs and/or off-the-shelf appliances.

Millennium Smiles can suggest treatment with one of the new appliances following investigation of symptoms in a sleep lab. The practice encourages clients to seek advice if they experience loud snoring, restless sleep, excessive daytime sleepiness, mood disturbances, or difficulty concentrating.
Mayo Clinic, one of America’s most respected health information sources, explains some of the risks of undiagnosed sleep apnea. These include high blood pressure, heart disease, strokes, and learning problems in children. The American Sleep Apnea Association puts OSA prevalence as high as 30%, with up to 80% of moderate-to-severe cases going undiagnosed.
With its services, Millennium Smiles aims to increase diagnosis rates and also to offer more convenient treatment options. The practice states that its custom-fitted oral appliances allow for fine adjustments over time, offering more effective long-term relief from symptoms.
“Obstructive sleep apnea can be caused by one of four things: nasal obstruction, soft palate collapse, tongue obstruction, or collapse of the airway in the throat,” a practice representative explained. “Our custom-fitted oral appliances address the specific needs of patients to help them breath better at night. A variety of appliances are available, each with a specific design to address a specific problem.”
