Sleep Apnea Solutions with Dr. Chris Hill

Struggling with sleep apnea can greatly affect your quality of life, leading to fatigue, health issues, and disrupted sleep. If you’ve been diagnosed with sleep apnea or suspect you might have it, Smile On Dental Studio in St. Louis, MO, is equipped to help. Dr. Chris Hill works closely with local sleep labs for accurate diagnoses and offers effective treatment options tailored to your needs.

Diagnosing Sleep Apnea

If you are experiencing symptoms of sleep apnea, such as loud snoring, daytime fatigue, or sudden awakenings with a sensation of choking, it’s crucial to get a proper diagnosis. Dr. Chris Hill can evaluate your airways and, if necessary, refer you to a reputable St. Louis sleep lab. A comprehensive sleep study will confirm whether sleep apnea is the cause of your symptoms, allowing us to proceed with the most effective treatment.

Oral Appliance Therapy

While CPAP machines are commonly prescribed for sleep apnea, many patients find them cumbersome and uncomfortable, leading to low compliance. As an alternative, Dr. Hill specializes in custom-fitting oral mouthpieces that reposition the jaw and tongue to keep the airway open during sleep. This solution is similar to wearing a retainer and is specifically designed to reduce or eliminate the symptoms of sleep apnea.

Benefits of Oral Appliance Therapy

Choosing an oral appliance for sleep apnea management offers several advantages:


Unlike bulky CPAP masks, oral appliances are small, lightweight, and comfortable to wear.


Oral appliances are easy to use, clean, and transport, making them ideal for consistent use, including while traveling.


Properly fitted oral appliances can significantly reduce the symptoms of sleep apnea, leading to better sleep quality and overall health.


The compact design makes oral appliances barely noticeable, avoiding the discomfort and self-consciousness associated with CPAP machines.
