Schedule an Appointment for Sleep Apnea Day
Sleep apnea day falls on March 20 and if you or someone you know suffers from it but is unhappy with current treatment call Chittenden Dental.
Dr. Mike Morris is a licensed bioesthetic dentist making customized solutions for your chronic snoring and/or sleep apnea.
What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a disorder that men, women and children suffer from. This serious condition is potentially deadly as it causes the person to wake as many as thirty times every hour just so he or she can breathe.
People with sleep apnea, for whatever reason, have a smaller airway making it nearly impossible to breathe.
Because of the narrow airway the brain wakes the person up. Because the incidents happen so quickly people suffering have no idea that they have the disorder.
Signs and Symptoms
While snoring is a major sign of sleep apnea people who snore don’t always suffer from it. However, if snoring is accompanied by any of the following symptoms it’s time to schedule an appointment with your primary care physician.
- Cessations in Breathing while Sleeping

What is MAGO Therapy?
MAGO therapy is custom designed oral appliance that allows your jaw to function properly while protecting your teeth and relaxing your face and neck muscles.
