Get great sleep again
Our first step with treating sleep apnea patients, or people that we may think have sleep apnea is a sleep test. We have a very simple at-home sleep test that we can utilize. It's done 100% digitally that we can send home with the patient, they can utilize that gear. And it sends us all the information we need regarding the patient's sleep. If we find that somebody does have upper airway resistance syndrome, or sleep apnea, we have a number of tools that we can use anything from NightLase to a mandibular advancement device. Or whether we need to seek a physician's help and go with a CPAP machine.
Sleep apnea is really an epidemic, at least a quarter of the country suffers from. And is something that increases our chances of a heart attack and stroke by a factor of three. So, it is very serious and we look forward to helping you at Synergy Dental Center.
At Synergy Dental Center, Dr. David Porter can design a custom-fitted oral appliance that can help you:
- End your loud, nightly snoring
- Wake up feeling refreshed and rejuvenated
- Feel more energetic throughout the day
- Boost your mood and productivity
- Improve your concentration at work
- Stay more alert behind the wheel
- Lower your risk for serious health problems
- Get deep, quality sleep
We can also treat children with sleep-disordered breathing and airway problems through preventive orthodontics that help with healthy jaw and airway development.
Nightlase® is an excellent option for patients who desire a non-invasive solution for their snoring and sleep apnea symptoms. We can use gentle laser therapy to tighten loose tissue around the top of your airway to create easier breathing for many patients. You’ll be free from all devices and appliances while you sleep!

Treat Sleep Disorders With an Oral Appliance
At Synergy Dental Center, Dr. Porter can screen you for a sleep disorder and offer a convenient at-home sleep test. If you are diagnosed with this condition, we can help you find a sleep apnea treatment that is right for you. Before your visit, you can do some self-screening of your own with the resources below:
- Obstructive Sleep Apnea Quiz
- Acid Reflux Assessment
- Pediatric Sleep-Disordered Breathing or Airway Obstruction
The most common treatment option for adults is a CPAP (or continuous positive airway pressure) machine. These can be effective if they are used correctly. Unfortunately, experts estimate that as many as 8 in 10 people with CPAP machines do not use them like they should. Some people are bothered by the sounds their machines make. Some people find the masks uncomfortable. In other cases, people simply find their machines to be too much trouble.
We offer an alternative to a CPAP that many of our patients consider more comfortable and convenient. With one of our custom-fitted oral appliances that you wear like a mouthguard when you sleep, your airways remain open throughout the night. You will breathe easily, stop snoring, and stay asleep longer so you wake up feeling rested and refreshed.
One type of oral appliance is a mandibular advancement device. This appliance gently shifts your lower jaw forward (along with your tongue) to keep your airway open while you relax to sleep. It is very comfortable, easy to use, and highly effective for many patients.
