Sleep Medicine

Did you know that a dentist can help you get better sleep?

If you wake up tired on a regular basis, you may suffer from a sleep-related breathing disorder. Ellis & Lindgren Orthodontics is a Dreamsleep Certified Provider, meaning our staff has undergone extensive, hands-on training to screen for and treat sleep-related breathing disorders with an oral appliance, a convenient, non-invasive treatment option for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA).

We can screen you today or during your next regularly scheduled visit. Your screening results will be reviewed by a board-certified physician and based on their recommendation we may provide you with an in-home sleep test to determine if an oral appliance will alleviate your symptoms*.

If the home sleep test results indicate you will benefit from the oral appliance, we will take an impression and create a mold for a custom appliance. You will get your custom made oral appliance in the mail and can schedule an appointment with us to make any adjustments if necessary.

  • Oral appliance is custom made to fit your teeth and jaw
  • Portable for easy and convenient travel
  • No dry or itchy respiratory symptoms like those often associated with CPAP
  • Unlike the CPAP, the oral appliance is silent and will not disrupt partners’ sleep
  • OAT can be less expensive and more convenient than CPAP or surgery

*Home Sleep Tests in NJ, GA and TX are ordered by a DreamSleep dentist in conjunction with a physician.
