We're passionate about healthy, restful sleep! Dr. JC Goodwin, Sleep Matters founder and dental sleep medicine expert, has a solution that can help you get a restful night's sleep!
At Sleep Matters, we provide the easy-to-use oral device alternative to CPAP for sleep apnea sufferers. This therapy is usually covered by Medicare and most medical insurance. We've managed more than 2,000 cases.
Trained in dental sleep medicine, Dr. Goodwin can provide you with a custom oral airway dilator for use at night. Similar in appearance to orthodontic retainers or a sports mouth guard, they fit over your teeth and work by either moving your lower jaw forward slightly or by placing gentle pressure on the tongue to keep it from falling back.
Oral appliance therapy involves the selection, customized design, fitting and follow-up adjustments of an oral appliance. Every patient has specific needs. Sleep medicine dentists are the only dentists trained to properly manage sleep apnea as opposed to simply minimizing snoring. At Sleep Matters, a number of different oral appliances are available, providing the patient the broadest range of oral appliance options.
Oral appliances are a safe and effective alternative to CPAP and other pressure breathing machines.
