Sleep Apnea

Sleep Apnea

Tired of being tired?


Come see Chicago’s premier source for treating obstructive sleep apnea.

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a condition where the afflicted are not able to breathe properly while sleeping. In a study conducted at Stanford University in California, one out of three chronic, severe snorers were found to have had a harmful degree of sleep apnea. Throughout the night sufferers will often experience apneas (defined as the temporary inability to breathe) that may last as long as 40 seconds. This causes your brain to “wake you up” enough that you’ll move and can resume breathing. Most patients don’t know that they have this condition until they are observed by a spouse or sleeping partner. This means that most OSA sufferers are unaware of their condition and have just learned to live a life of fatigue.

You do not have to live this way – there are many treatments available for OSA.

At Smile On Dental Salon and Sleep Apnea Center, we specialize in the use of oral appliances for the successful treatment of sleep apnea and snoring. Our team has extensive experience in assessing and treating OSA, we are well established within the OSA community, having fostered close relationships with several physicians, sleep labs and hospitals in the city.

Our specialist OSA program at Smile On can provide you with up-to-date information on treating OSA with Oral Appliances and help you understand the condition.
