Sleeping with a snoring bed partner can be annoying and unhealthy for both people.

This happens when the air passage deflates, blocking airflow into the lungs. The harder one tries to breathe, the tighter the air passage seals.
Dr. Cloud uses a state-of-the-art, 3D, digital presentation program called BiteFX™ that enlists the aid of elementary computer animations (no abstract art that looks like a Rohrschach test) to illustrate malocclusion (bad bite) in an easy to understand way. "Bite FX has been a great tool for educating my patients while discussing their mastication (chewing) workings and occlusal education," proclaims Dr. John Cloud.

Dr. Cloud can bring about life-altering smiles with new and safe oral sedation techniques that can mean after years of neglect and missed dental treatments they can be done quickly and with little or no discomfort.
