What Is Sleep Dentistry?

Sleep dentistry is a specialized area of dental practice that extends beyond mere oral health care. At its core, it’s an interdisciplinary approach that addresses sleep-related breathing disorders, with a primary focus on managing and treating sleep apnea.

Mild to moderate sleep apnea, our area of expertise, is a condition characterized by pauses in breathing or periods of shallow breathing during sleep. These interruptions, often accompanied by snoring, can lead to fragmented sleep and decreased oxygen levels in the blood, affecting the person’s overall health and well-being.

Our non-invasive approach centers around the design and application of custom oral appliances. These devices, similar in appearance to mouthguards, are engineered to maintain an open, unobstructed airway in the throat, facilitating proper breathing and paving the way for a serene night’s sleep. They are an effective alternative for those who find CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) therapy uncomfortable or intolerable.

The Value Of Sleep Dentistry Services

The services offered by sleep dentistry are invaluable, reaching far beyond just a good night’s sleep. Treatment for sleep apnea can result in a significant enhancement in your health and daily functioning. Here’s why it’s so crucial:

Enhanced Cognitive Functions

Untreated sleep apnea can lead to impaired memory and concentration. Sleep dentistry interventions can reverse these effects, sharpening your mind and focus.

Sleep apnea has been linked to hypertension, heart disease, and stroke. By treating your sleep apnea, you can reduce these risks, safeguarding your heart’s health.

Increased Energy Levels

Continuous, quality sleep, made possible through our treatments, can drastically improve your energy and vitality, affecting every aspect of your daily life.
