What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a serious sleeping disorder in which the patient’s breathing stops and starts throughout the night. This can cause loud snoring, gasping for air during sleep, reduced or absent breathing, fatigue, diminished motor skills, headaches, dry mouth, frequent night waking, foggy memory, and more.

While sleep apnea may seem like an annoyance, it can increase a patient’s risk for health conditions like asthma, behavioral disorders, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and more.

Sleep apnea is treatable. Here at PS Dental, we work with patients experiencing sleep apnea to find the right treatment for their condition and lifestyle.

Don’t let sleep apnea affect your night’s sleep! Schedule your appointment at PS Dental to find the right dental solution.

Diagnosing

Diagnosing Sleep Apnea is more than just asking if you snore. We screen all of our patients by asking a series of questions to determine how you are sleeping now, your sleep history, and the symptoms you are experiencing. We may refer you for an at-home sleep test or to a sleep physician who may request an overnight, in-lab sleep study called a polysomnogram or a PSG, to uncover detailed information about your night’s sleep

Every diagnostic tool used will provide an in-depth look into your night’s sleep. This allows us to find the right oral appliance therapy to treat your sleep apnea.

Treatments

Sleep apnea treatment can consist of lifestyle changes, allergy treatment, or oral appliances. Lifestyle changes that can reduce sleep apnea include weight loss, quitting smoking, reducing pollen counts in the bedroom, or taking allergy medication.

OAT

Oral Appliance Therapy
Properly fitted dental appliances can treat sleep-disordered breathing including snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Patients at PS Dental receive specially fitted oral appliances from Dr. Sepehri and come in for adjustments until they are having a comfortable night’s sleep.

CPAP

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure or CPAP is a machine used for severe sleep apnea. The CPAP works to keep a patient’s upper airway passages open throughout the night, preventing apnea.
