Dentures are a common solution for those who have experienced tooth loss. Today, there are many advancements that allow dentures to have a more custom fit for added comfort and function, as well as a more realistic appearance to mimic natural teeth. However, even when they fit well, they often cause difficulty when eating and speaking.

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that affects more than 20 million US adults every year.
