Oral Appliance Therapy
Dr. Horan’s Recommendation
Dr. Horan custom makes all his patients oral appliances in house, his craft is what helps Stuart, FL sleep well at night. Our custom oral appliances are dental devices designed to treat sleep apnea and eliminate snoring. These appliances fit in your mouth like a mouth guard or retainer. They keep your jaw in a forward position to maintain an open airway as you sleep. In the same fashion, these devices also prevent your tongue from blocking your throat – another issue that causes snoring and sleep apnea.

With his extensive knowledge in both sleep disorders and dentistry, he uniquely provides patients with precise, custom-fitted oral appliances.
