I have been going to Dentistry by Design for about 5 years now. In that time I have had multiple cleanings, a few cavities filled, and have had a mouthguard made. All of my experiences have been positive. The mouthguard has made a world of a difference in my overall sleep quality and I no longer have tension headaches related to my clenching/grinding/TMJ.”

A Smaller, Less Noisy Alternative to CPAP
A CPAP mask has been known as the gold standard of treatment for sleep apnea, and for many, it works great. However, for nearly half or more of users, they completely stop using the machine due to its loud noise, bulky size, inconvenience, and claustrophobic feel.
Dr. Robinette now offers oral appliances as an effective, more convenient alternative to CPAP. It’s generally prescribed to patients suffering from mild-to-moderate obstructive sleep apnea but has also been found to alleviate symptoms of severe OSA.
When you visit Dentistry by Design for your consultation, we’ll discuss your sleep treatment options and help you achieve the quality sleep you’ve been desiring.
Benefits of an oral appliance that our patients admire include:
- Easy to use
- Customized for each unique patient
- Small and silent
