Get To Know Our Patient - Rick Earnest | Patient Medical Physician
Welcome to Sleepwell Longview! When treating a sleep disorder, you might not initially think your dentist would be the most qualified to help you. However, some dentists have taken up the mantle to help treat sleep apnea as they have a lot of knowledge concerning breathing passageways and the way that our bite and joint alignment can affect that. One of the most popular and effective methods of treating sleep apnea is the CPAP machine - however, many people find it difficult to sleep wearing one. Fortunately, we have other treatment options available to you at our practice, such as an oral appliance. These custom mouthpieces help move your jaw into a position that doesn't interrupt the natural air flow while you sleep, but is comfortable enough to wear through the night. Ready to get your restful sleep back? Call us today.
