What is Dental Sleep Medicine?
Dental sleep medicine is an area of dental practice that focuses on the use of oral appliance therapy to treat sleep-disordered breathing, including snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Dentists work together with sleep physicians to identify the best treatment for each patient.
Dr. Mathison has obtained Dental Sleep Medicine Diplomate status from the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine. This Diplomate status by the ABDSM, recognizes dentists who have completed the necessary education and requirements to treat patients that have Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) and snoring with oral appliance therapy, which is an effective alternative to the CPAP machine. He is also a member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM), the only non-profit professional association dedicated exclusively to the practice of dental sleep medicine.
Dr. Mathison is one of the few providers in the tri-state area who have the Diplomate status in the area of Dental Sleep Medicine.

Read the testimonial below of how Dr. Mathison helped his patient with her sleep apnea using oral appliance therapy:
"I have had many nights of sleep that have been interrupted due to my sleep apnea, leaving me feeling tired and lethargic all day long. I met with Sleep Specialists and they diagnosed me with sleep apnea and prescribed a C-Pap Machine.
I had struggled with my C-Pap Machine leaking air and not fitting right for years. I tried so many different masks and I could not resolve the issue of air leaking and waking me up! I was frustrated with the constant nature of the air leaks and my sleep issues were unresolved. My Sleep Apnea Doctor recommended that I try an oral appliance and referred me to Dr. Chris Mathison. I met with Dr. Mathison and he had numerous options for me to try. His knowledge, patience, and expertise were truly appreciated. Dr. Mathison was able to find an oral appliance that was "just right" for me! I could not believe how amazing and energized I felt every morning when I woke up! I never knew that I could feel so refreshed in the morning. My husband has called the mouth appliance "A Miracle!" What a blessing it has been to resolve my sleep issue."
