Convenient Oral Appliances
Sleep apnea disrupts your sleep, leaving you feeling rundown throughout the day. Dr. Sage White is an experienced sleep dentist who’s recognized as a Diplomat by the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine (ABDSM).
An oral appliance is a trouble-free way to treat both snoring, sleep apnea, and TMJ issues.
Our patients in Cedar City often tell us they prefer oral appliance therapy over CPAP therapy when treating sleep apnea. An oral appliance has the following unique features:
- Easy to wear
- Won’t dry out your sinuses
- No maintenance required
- Won’t restrict your sleep
- Doesn’t require a power source

The Connection Between Sleep Apnea & TMJ
If you suffer from obstructive sleep apnea, oftentimes the collapsing of your airway can cause your body to force your jaw forward in an attempt to open up. The constant movement of the TMJ can lead to tension or stress on the joint. This can cause your sleep apnea and TMJ symptoms to worsen in a toxic cycle that requires a gentle, special-trained professional to break.
The professionals at Southern Utah Sleep & TMJ Center are trained to treat complex TMJ disorders and sleep apnea. We’re proud to offer the high-quality treatment solutions you need in order to sleep easier all while relieving any jaw pain. TMJ disorders and sleep apnea not only develop together but can also reinforce each other.
Dentists are most likely the first to catch a TMJ issue due to the nature of the work, but it takes special training to be able to do so. Dr. White has over 40 years of experience in helping patients achieve a higher-quality, pain-free sleep and lifestyle.

How can a dentist tell if you have sleep apnea?
A dentist can tell if you have sleep apnea because there are often signs of the disorder in your mouth and throat. Dentists are well-educated on the health of these areas, so they’re often the professional who can best tell if something is wrong.
While your dentist may be able to point out signs of sleep apnea, you must be formally diagnosed by a qualified physician in order to receive treatment. The only way to do this is to undergo a sleep test and review the results with your physician.
Once you’ve been diagnosed with sleep apnea, Dr. White can develop a treatment plan just for you. With the help of a convenient oral appliance and some basic lifestyle changes, he can provide the relief you need to enjoy a sound night’s rest.
