Dr. Gray will partner with your physician to help diagnose your condition. This will likely require you to complete either an at-home or in-lab sleep study that will track your breathing patterns and vitals as you rest. The sleep doctor will then be able to review your results and make a diagnosis based on their findings to help determine whether oral appliance therapy is the right option for you.

There are multiple unique TAP oral appliance designs that are made to combat the symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea, like chronic snoring. Your TAP appliance will be custom-made to fit in your mouth as you sleep, shifting your airway to keep it open throughout the night. This will allow for ample oxygen flow, reduce any snoring, and allow you to get the deep sleep that you desperately need.
