Sleep dentistry is an area of dental health that works with patients to achieve better night time sleep. Many patients suffer from sleep apnea and snoring. At Kiessling Family Dental, we can fit you with a precise night time mouth piece to help you have a better night’s sleep. We are trained in working with TAP®3 and Silent Nite® Sleep Appliances.
TAP® 3devices are a two-piece custom-made appliance that snaps comfortably over your upper and lower teeth. The TAP® is designed to keep the airway open by holding the jaw forward. By keeping the tongue forward and allowing the throat to stay open, there is nothing to constrict or obstruct the airway. A constricted airway causes obstructive sleep apnea and snoring.
Silent Nite® Sleep Appliances help provide a more restful night’s sleep and treats obstructed sleep disordered breathing. Silent Nite® Sleep Appliances bring the bottom jaw forward and help to keep the airway open, reducing or eliminating snoring. They are designed to treat mild to moderate sleep apnea.
