SLEEP APNEA QUIZ
As dentists we’re at the forefront of airway and sleep-related health—this is a basic questionnaire to determine if you are at risk for sleep-disordered breathing. If you are at risk no need to fear, we have many options outside of a traditional CPAP device to get you permanently breathing and sleeping better!

CROOKED OR CROWDED TEETH
The most common treatment for crowded and crooked teeth is realignment devices, such as braces or clear alignment trays. However, sometimes the issue goes beyond the teeth and is actually the result of underdeveloped jaws.

NIGHTLASE
Nightlase therapy is a non-surgical laser treatment that gently tightens the soft palette tissues in the throat and mouth. Helps reduce or eliminate snoring and decreases effects of Sleep Apnea.

It is possible to achieve restful sleep.

At Breathing and Sleep Center of Colorado Springs, we diagnose and treat breathing and sleep disorders caused by airway restriction due to underdeveloped jaws.  Our team of trained, experienced dentists offer non-surgical treatments that allow our patients to restore and regain their sleep and quality of life.

Dr. Erlander, Goles and Smith work together to identify the underlying cause(s) of your breathing and sleep-related issues and then outline your treatment plan. All patients’ needs vary, which is why we customize each treatment plan to fit your specific diagnosis. Our first step is to have you visit our center and attend one of our Patient Education Meetings to learn more about your options. Call Today or Submit a Form!
