When your breathing is obstructed during sleep, Dr. James D. Powell will provide treatment for sleep apnea in Palmdale, California. Our dentist provides custom-fitted oral devices to treat sleep apnea. The most widely used mouth device is called the mandibular advancement device (MAD). This device eases your lower jaw forward during sleep, which prevents the soft tissue in your throat from collapsing and blocking your airflow.
