There have been countless jokes, cartoons and comedy skits devoted to snoring. While it can be very annoying, it may also be a symptom of sleep apnea. Besides keeping you from getting the rest that you need, sleep apnea can also contribute to several serious health problems. If you have been diagnosed with this problem, call Richard S. Durando, DDS at 650-323-8328. Our dentist can fit you for an appliance for sleep apnea treatment in Menlo Park, California. For an even more effective solution, talk with Dr. Richard Durando about addressing the problem using the Vivos System®. This system involves the use of an intraoral appliance digitally designed to address your specific needs. During your treatment period, which may last between 12 and 24 months, the appliance will gradually grow your maxilla and mandible to make them wider and move them forward, improving the flow of oxygen into your airway.
