Are you having trouble getting through a full night’s sleep? Do you have problems with snoring? Are you waking up tired after a full night’s sleep? You might be experiencing sleep apnea. Our dental care team can discuss your concerns and offer sleep apnea treatments and solutions to improve overall health and wellness.
Sleep apnea is a common sleep disorder that can become dangerous if not treated correctly. Severe sleep apnea is characterized by your breathing repeatedly stopping and starting during sleep.
In its most common form, sleep apnea occurs when the muscles in your throat relax while you are asleep, causing your airway to contract. At Flower Mound Dental, we would love for you to visit us to talk about solutions and a potential treatment plan for your sleep apnea.
We will start by giving you a sleep exam. Through this, our dentists will be enabled to pinpoint any risk factors you may have for sleep apnea by giving you a series of screening questions.
You will also be required to have a CT scan done to provide an image of your mouth and airway so your dentist can recognize any blockages in your airflow. A treatment plan tailored to your specific needs will then be formed.
During a sleep apnea dental exam, dentists can recognize risk factors for sleep apnea through the use of simple screening questions.
3D AIRWAY EVALUATION
A CT scan will give an image of the mouth. With this scan, your dentist will be able to identify blockages and airflow for a prognosis.
ORAL APPLIANCE THERAPY
A fitted oral appliance is the most effective solution for dealing with sleep apnea. This appliance will restore airflow while you sleep, helping you get through the night without waking up and keeping your throat from collapsing.
