HOW DO WE TREAT SLEEP APNEA?

Dr. Bauter treats sleep apnea and snoring with a dental appliance that hold the jaw forward during sleeping to prevent the tongue and soft tissues from collapsing into the airway. Dr Bauter can make minor adjustments to the appliance to make it more effective and more comfortable. This is a great alternative treatment to the CPAP machine in treating Sleep Apnea and snoring.
