Sleep Dentistry

A good night’s sleep is one dental visit away

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.

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 sleep 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.

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.

Sleep-disordered breathing: know the signs & symptoms

It’s estimated that 9 out of 10 apnea sufferers go undiagnosed, which is why it’s important to pay attention to the warning signs. Snoring seems commonplace, but it may be a symptom of sleep apnea, signaling much more serious breathing issues. Sleep apnea effects adults as well as children, and can cause you to wake up feeling tired and drained even though you have had a full night of sleep. This may manifest itself as fatigue, daytime sleepiness, memory loss and difficulty concentrating. The dentists at Hellertown Dental Group can help you with treatments for snoring and sleep apnea oral appliances.

Sleep apnea symptoms may include:

  • Snoring
  • Irritability
  • Forgetfulness
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Morning Headaches
  • Mood or behavior changes
  • Falling asleep during the day

A dental visit can help with sleep apnea and snoring

  • 22 million Americans have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)
  • 80-90% of people with OSA go undiagnosed
  • 40 million US adults have sleep disordered breathing (SDB)
  • Only 3 out of 100 people with sleep apnea have been treated
  • 1 in 5 US children have mild or moderate OSA
  • 1 in 15 US children have severe obstructive sleep apnea

What about grinding teeth?

Grinding or clenching your teeth is called bruxism, and it can contribute to the development of a TMJ disorder. A mouthguard from our top-notch Hellertown, PA dentist can help save your teeth and your jaw from the effects of chronic bruxism.
