If you’re suffering from sleep apnea in the Bryn Mawr area, it’s crucial that you get it addressed immediately. Sleep apnea is a significant condition that can have severe, long-term health effects if left untreated.
Fortunately, you can get such treatment at The Office of Dr. Bellisario, where our dentist has decades of experience helping the people of the Bryn Mawr area relieve their sleep apnea and return to restful, restorative sleep. One potential treatment option is the Tap® 3 Elite oral appliance.
FDA-approved for the treatment of sleep apnea, the Tap® 3 is an oral appliance that will be custom-designed to fit your teeth. The appliance consists of an upper and a lower tray connected by a small hook mechanism.
The Tap® 3 will hold your jaw forward, preventing the collapse of the soft tissue in your throat that closes your airway and causes obstructive sleep apnea. The appliance has three different hook sizes to allow for different levels of adjustment.
Dr. Bellisario will be happy to answer any of your questions about sleep apnea and to explain your treatment options.
If you’re a resident of the Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania area and you’re looking for an effective sleep apnea treatment, please contact The Office of Dr. Bellisario today.
