Sleep apnea is a disorder that occurs when a person's breathing is interrupted during sleep. Common symptoms of sleep apnea include loud snoring, difficulty staying asleep, feeling tired even after a full night's sleep, and pauses in breathing during sleep (usually witnessed by another person). Dr. Jeff Forslund has completed extensive training in Dental Sleep Medicine, has lectured to other dental professionals, and is one of only six Diplomates of the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine in the State of Minnesota.
Dr. Forslund can effectively treat sleep apnea right here in our office with a custom-made oral appliance that repositions the tongue and lower jaw during sleep to maintain an open airway, helping you sleep more comfortably through the night.
We offer complementary snoring and sleep apnea screenings. Call us at 507-334-6433 to assist you in scheduling a screening with Dr. Forslund.
