Sedation Dentistry Gaithersburg, MD

Sleep Dentistry

Dentists are uniquely positioned to identify snoring and sleep apnea in their patients. A thorough exam of the mouth can provide clues indicating sleep apnea, which affects the entire body. If you notice that you snore or if you are often tired, fall asleep during the day, suffer from headaches, inattention, diabetes, heart disease, or frequent urination, ask us about sleep apnea and snoring appliances. Getting regular good nights’ sleep is transformative for our sleep apnea patients.

Does your partner complain that you snore? We design snoring devices that reposition your jaw during sleep, minimizing snoring. These devices help you and your partner get a better night’s sleep!

Our dentists are trained in sleep medicine, allowing them to identify patients with potential sleep apnea. We use a Doppler sound machine to take diagnostic measurements and work with a local sleep clinic to conduct sleep studies. We offer a variety of sleep apnea appliance designs that are more portable and discreet than CPAP machines and our doctors custom design a sleep appliance depending on your specific needs.

Sleep Apnea Gaithersburg, MD

Sleep Apnea

People who have sleep apnea never get the rest that they deserve. They have trouble breathing which constantly wakes them up throughout the night. Many people who have sleep apnea have multiple health problems. They are always exhausted. Being tired can affect people at home and at work. They may be miserable and have trouble concentrating. Sleep apnea can also affect their blood pressure, making them more likely to have strokes. There is a big risk with anesthesia since they have trouble breathing.
