Sleep Apnea in Saint Paul, MN
Are Snoring & Sleep Apnea Keeping You Up at Night?
Our Team Offers the Effective Sleep Apnea Care You've Been Dreaming Of
Snoring is the result of soft tissues in the mouth and throat vibrating as a sleeping patient breathes. As your body inhales and exhales, it attempts to pass air over and through the relaxed oral tissues that have fallen into your airway.
When an airway is repeatedly blocked for 10 seconds or longer, we diagnose this condition as sleep apnea. Chronic, untreated sleep apnea has been linked to increased risk of heart disease and stroke, as well as fatigue and memory problems.
In order to effectively treat sleep apnea, our dental team will assess the root cause of obstructed breathing. We can then make a treatment recommendation.
Traditionally, sleep apnea has been treated with a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine. However, this treatment modality is not well-tolerated by many people. That is why we offer CPAP alternatives, like nighttime oral appliances, to help sleep apnea sufferers.

What Our Patients Are Saying
After working with Dr. Malterud for a couple of weeks to get the right fit for my NTI, the results are great. I may still get a headache but only for a few hours and not severe.

It's hard to believe that something so small could change my life in such a big way. I have been pain free without drugs or surgery for years now. My teeth have been saved from more damage because I don't grind them any more.
