Return to Case History


Carol has suffered from Sleep Apnea for many years. She was successfully treated by another doctor for her Sleep Apnea with an oral appliance. Carol was informed by that doctor of the risk of bite change. Over time she developed a permanent open bite where none of her front teeth came together any more. Carol could no longer bring most of her teeth together to eat. Since her changed jaw position improved sleep breathing, she did not want to go back. Yet she wanted to be able to chew normally. All of her back teeth already had metal crowns. We were able to further improve the jaw position, decompress the TM Joints and restored her mouth to full chewing function with Neuro muscular dental techniques. The aesthetic improvement of her smile with all porcelain restorations was a bonus.
