Dental sleep medicine or sleep dentistry focuses on treatment of snoring, sleep apnea and teeth grinding. While it may sound like a form of sedation dentistry, it’s not. Sleep disruption is a significant problem for many people – from snoring and breathing issues, to anxiety induced bruxism, it can prevent you from leading a normal, healthy and productive lifestyle.
Often times, patients may work with both a sleep center physician and a dentist to identify the best treatment for snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea. Hellertown Dental Group dentists are trained to help treat and manage sleap apnea and snoring using oral appliance therapy or laser dentistry.

Treating Sleep Apnea
Sleep apnea can be a very difficult condition to deal with. Not only can the associated loud snoring keep you and your partner awake, but sleep apnea can lead to a host of health problems. A custom TAP oral appliance from Hellertown Dental Group can give you the relief and sleep you need. Call us today at 610-838-0131.
Oral appliances can also be a viable alternative to CPAP devices (continuous positive airway pressure). If you have been trying to treat your sleep-disordered breathing with a CPAP machine, you may find an appliance to be significantly less disruptive to your bedtime routine.
