Sleep Apnea and Snoring Treatment

Let CarolinasDentist Sleep Apnea Treatment Return Your Restful Nights

Our Sleep Apnea Treatment Delivers Results

We can’t underestimate the value of sleep for our health. It’s crucial for a healthy body and a healthy life, and when that’s interrupted by something like sleep apnea, it can cause trouble. Sleep apnea is a disorder where you have pauses while breathing or shallow breaths as you sleep. The most common type of sleep apnea is obstructive sleep apnea, which is when your airway actually collapses or gets blocked resulting in that interference with your breathing. The effects of this sleep disorder reach much further than exhaustion during the day or loud snoring at night; sleep apnea has actually been linked to high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease.

You may wonder why you would need to see a dentist to treat your sleep apnea. We can create a custom oral device as an effective treatment solution for those with mild-to-moderate obstructive sleep apnea! We’d love to help you get back to the days of restful nights, rejuvenated days, and a healthier future.

Signs of Sleep Apnea

Even though sleep apnea occurs, well, while you sleep, there are still some symptoms you can be on the lookout for when you wake up and check for throughout the day. If you sleep with a partner, they may be able to let you know if they notice any of the following, too. (They might be too eager to tell you, in fact!) Here are some of the most common signs of sleep apnea:

  • Snoring
  • Waking up abruptly with shortness of breath
  • Dry mouth or sore throat upon waking
  • Morning headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty paying attention
  • Irritability
  • Insomnia
  • Weight gain

If any of these ring a bell, then don’t wait for sleep apnea to cause even more damage to your health. Contact CarolinasDentist so we can come up with a sleep apnea treatment plan that’s right for you.

Oral Appliance Therapy—Alternative to CPAP

CPAP may be the standard when it comes to treating sleep apnea, but it’s not your only option. We provide oral appliance therapy as a less-invasive alternative that’s great for those who either have mild sleep apnea or who simply can’t tolerate the CPAP.

The oral appliance is a removable mouthpiece that you put in like you would a mouthguard or retainer. It stabilizes your tongue and repositions your jaw to prevent your airway from collapse and improve airflow. Many patients prefer oral appliance therapy because it doesn’t require them to make a drastic lifestyle change.

  • Carolinas Dentist is amazing. From the first step inside the build I felt welcome. Most of my questions was answered before I even could ask and the question I did ask was answered in its entirety. I recommend Carolinas Dentist to anyone in the local area.

  • I came in with an emergency, first thing in the morning. They were the first office to actually listen to me, and to take care of what I needed done. They gave me options, but supported the decision I went with and was comfortable with. Highly recommend!

    Friendly staff. Very welcoming and professional. Just try to make sure to do your check in properly and confirm your appointment time. Mine was changed a few times and I was not notified about the third change so I was 30 minutes early.

    The receptionist was friendly and the waiting time was at a minimum. The dental assistant was professional and helpful. The surgeon explained everything that had to be done so I felt comfortable. The prices are high but I guess you get what you pay for.
