Treatments for Snoring and Sleep Apnea


Watch a featured video of Dr. Sabrina Magid-Katz discussing the impact of Sleep Apnea.

Are you falling asleep during the day even though you thought you got a full night’s sleep? You may have a common disorder known as sleep apnea.

With sleep apnea, as you are sleeping you may have one or more pauses in breathing or shallow breaths. Breathing pauses can last from a few seconds to minutes. They often occur five to 30 times or more an hour. Typically, normal breathing then starts again, sometimes with a loud snort or choking sound.

What Is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea usually is a chronic (ongoing) condition that disrupts your sleep three or more nights each week. You often move out of deep sleep and into light sleep when your breathing pauses or becomes shallow. This results in poor sleep quality that makes you tired during the day. Sleep apnea is one of the leading causes of excessive daytime sleepiness.

Because of the increased daytime sleepiness you are at a greater risk for occupational and automobile accidents. Untreated sleep apnea also leaves you at greater risk for developing high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes or other serious health problems. Watch the whole video…

In the past, the recommended treatment for sleep apnea was the CPAP machine, but many patients found it cumbersome and uncomfortable to use and abandoned it.

Dental technology now allows us to offer patients suffering from sleep apnea a comfortable, but highly effective treatment. Rather then a noisy, claustrophobic machine we are able to treat sleep apnea and snoring with a comfortable, custom fitted oral appliance.

The SomnoMed Oral Appliance holds the lower jaw slightly forward, which tightens the soft tissue and muscles of the upper airway. This allows the airway to stay open and unobstructed so it does not impair your breathing.


  • Constantly out of energy? 
  • Is your partner always snoring? 

If so, it may be a sign of Sleep Apnea.

Snoring is not only a serious social problem which can affect relationships, it could be related to sleep apnea, and is one of the signs to look for if you’re wondering if you should be evaluated.

Some health risks of Sleep Apnea include:

heart attack, stroke, depression, muscle pain, inefficient metabolism, loss of short-term memory, weight gain, high blood pressure, diabetes, severe anxiety, memory and concentration impairment, intellectual deterioration, insomnia, impotence and more.

As a member of The American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, Dr. Sabrina Magid-Katz has extensive experience identifying and correcting the symptoms of sleep breathing disorders.

Dr. Magid-Katz can often easily alleviate the condition with a dental appliance designed to keep airflow steady throughout snoring and sleep.
