Kanata Dentist Uses Custom Appliances to Treat Snoring & Sleep Apnea

couple dealing with snoring

Snoring is not much of a concern to most of us, unless it is disturbing our sleep or someone else's.


However, frequent and loud snoring may be a sign of sleep apnea, which is a more serious disorder that can affect your health. Many people suffer from sleep apnea without even being aware. Sleep apnea is caused by:

  • An obstruction of the airway by soft tissues that relax during sleep
  • An obstruction of nasal passages
  • An obstruction caused by the position of the jaw during sleep


No matter the reason, the result is restless sleep that will bring its share of health problems in the long run. If snoring or sleep apnea is causing a problem for you, schedule an appointment with Kanata North Dental Office.


We Can Help Keep Your Airways Open

We can create a small custom-made plastic appliance that you wear at night to prevent soft tissues from obstructing your airways. This appliance is known as a mandibular advancement device or MAD. It is comfortable to wear, lets you breathe easily through your mouth and enables you to get a good night’s sleep.


Talk to Dr. Assad, who will assess your situation and let you know if a MAD could be beneficial for you. In some cases, we may refer you to a physician for medical treatment.

Appointment Request

Please send us your preferred date of the visit, and a representative will verify the availability within the next 24h.
