Wildhorse Dental is excited to now be able to provide Chesterfield and Wildwood patients treatment for sleep apnea. As many of our patients have been diagnosed as suffering from sleep apnea and sleep disordered breathing and have found themselves unable to comply with CPAP therapy, when appropriate we can construct an oral appliance that can act as a comfortable alterative. It is estimated that up to one in five adults may suffer from some form of sleep dysfunction, and its effects can be very destructive, ranging from stroke, hypertension and heart attacks. We offer a variety of different appliance depending on the patients needs, and in many instances it will be covered by medical insurance.
