Treating Sleep Apnea

Are you or your partner a chronic snorer? Do you often wake up in the middle of the night finding it difficult to breathe? These conditions are common signs of sleep apnea, and Advanced Total Dental Care can help. Sleep apnea is the result of a patient’s airway becoming partially or completely blocked repeatedly while asleep. The patient’s throat muscles fail to keep the airway open allowing the soft tissues or tongue to block the airway. Oxygen is then unable to flow to your vital organs and brain, causing patients to experience interrupted and unrestful sleep.

Signs of Sleep Apnea

There are multiple common signs of sleep apnea:

  • Consistent, loud snoring
  • Waking up to breathe
  • Headaches that arise in the morning
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Dry mouth
  • Irritability
  • Feeling excessively tired during the day
  • Sleeping with an open mouth

If you have noticed any of these signs of sleep apnea, call Advanced Total Dental Care for treatment today at (301) 637-0960. Our professional team will ensure that you receive the most comfortable solution possible to help treat sleep apnea.

At-Home Sleep Study

Dr. David Rever can arrange for an at-home sleep study which is analyzed by a physician. The results will indicate the severity of your sleep disorder. Dr. Rever will work with you to coordinate the most appropriate and effective treatment.

Advanced Total Dental Care offers oral appliance therapy to treat patients with mild to moderate cases of sleep apnea. Similar to a mouth guard, oral appliances are custom fit to your exact measurements. This solution opens up the airways and prevents the soft tissue in the back of the throat from collapsing. Oral appliance therapy stops snoring and treats sleep apnea reliving morning headaches and chronic fatigue. Oral appliances are a more comfortable alternative to bulky CPAP machines. Because they are discreet and easy to wear, oral appliances offer higher compliancy rates. The appliance fits easily in a case for easy carry on travel.
