The clinic's new treatments are designed to address specific causes of OSA, such as nasal obstruction, soft palate collapse, tongue obstruction, or collapse of throat airways. The ability to custom-fit appliances to the shape of each client's mouth offers a more comfortable and effective solution, while also allowing for future adjustments.

While OSA is most commonly associated with snoring, Millennium Smiles explains that its latest devices can help to address less well-known problems, such as disturbed sleep, daytime fatigue, and learning problems or pseudo-ADHD in children. The practice continues to offer more traditional treatment options, such as continuous positive airway pressure, also known as CPAP.
As it relates to breathing, obstructive sleep apnea can restrict the amount of oxygen an individual receives as they sleep. This can lead to several longer-term health concerns, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, GERD, and anxiety or depression.
With the most recent update, Millennium Smiles aims to improve therapeutic outcomes by offering treatment options that are easier to use. The practice may recommend the new appliances after sleep apnea diagnosis has been confirmed in a sleep lab.
"For obstructive sleep apnea, our advanced appliances will address the specific needs of clients to help them breathe better at night," a clinic representative explained. "The unique part of our FDA-approved appliances is that they also help heal or keep your temporomandibular joint (TMJ) healthy; many other appliances can cause TMJ problems."
