snoring & Sleep Apnea
Let us give you the smile you deserve.
Dentistry & Sleep, how are they connected?
How you sleep affects your overall health and daily life. A good night’s sleep helps you feel, look and perform your best. However a restless and disturbed sleep disorder can severely impact that. Snoring is the most common sleep issue, affecting not only you but also a sleep partner. Loud and frequent snoring can also be a sign of a more serious health disorder called Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
How Can We Help?
Snoring is a sound that is created by the vibration of soft tissue in the mouth and upper airway. Obesity, nasal obstruction, alcohol, age and smoking all increase the likelihood of snoring. A device known as a snore guard can help alleviate this condition and our professionals can determine if that is all that is necessary or if sleep apnea is also an issue.

What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?
Obstructive Sleep Apnea is considered a health condition which requires a medical doctor to diagnose. A brief questionnaire known as the Epworth Sleepiness Scale can be completed in our office as a preliminary diagnostic tool. However, a sleep study conducted at a specialized facility in conjunction with sleep doctors is necessary to arrive at a specific diagnosis. Once diagnosed, a patient may be eligible for a CPAP machine or if unable to use an oral appliance. Our office and doctors work along with the sleep physician to come up with an appropriate treatment.
