Snoring and sleep apnea are two serious health problems that should not be ignored. Snoring not only irritates the spouse, but can also adversely affect marriages. Dr. Rondeau has been very successful in treating snoring with oral appliances that are designed to move the lower jaw and tongue into a position that eliminates the condition.
Sleep apnea occurs when the patient stops breathing at night, sometimes more than 30 times per hour. This lack of oxygen can cause serious conditions, including increased blood pressure, heart attacks and strokes.
Dr. Rondeau’s objective is to help patients achieve straight profiles, healthy jaw joints and beautiful smiles, and his philosophy is to start treatment at a young age with arch development appliances, which can solve many future issues before the permanent teeth come in. This approach ensures that the majority of his patients can be treated for issues that present in adulthood nonsurgically and without having to extract any permanent teeth. He has dedicated his professional life to treating patients and teaching the dental profession with a holistic and orthopedic philosophy.Contact our office for an appointment!
