Improve Your Life with Our Sleep Apnea Solutions

When you think of sleep apnea, you probably think of snoring.

Although snoring can be an indicator, snoring is not the only symptom of sleep apnea. It affects your overall well-being. There are different types of sleep apnea including:

  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea – This type of sleep apnea happens when your airways become blocked from your tongue.
  • Central Sleep Apnea – This type of sleep apnea is due to a signal failure between the brain and your airway muscles.
  • Complex Sleep Apnea  – This is a combination of Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Central Sleep Apnea.

Not sure if you have sleep apnea? Reserve an initial consultation with Rinaldi Dental Arts.

Effects of Sleep Apnea on Oral & Overall Health

When your tongue and soft palate relax into the airway, it hinders the free flow of your breath. This can lead you to wake up feeling exhausted and fatigued throughout your day. Not only that, but it can also contribute to heart disease, diabetes, and other long-term health risks if not addressed.

If you are experiencing symptoms such as loud snoring, daytime sleepiness, dry mouth, difficulty staying asleep, or gasping for breath in the middle of the night, it is essential to seek treatment for sleep apnea. Don’t let this condition compromise your health and quality of life.

Bethesda Sleep Apnea Treatment & Process

At our dental office, we prioritize your health and wellness, which is why we offer comprehensive screening and a home sleep study for diagnosis.

For patients diagnosed with sleep apnea, we can then create a custom oral appliance (with the referral of a physician) that prevents your tongue from blocking your airway during sleep. This non-invasive option is an excellent alternative to a CPAP machine and can be especially beneficial for those who find it difficult to tolerate the machine. (Your insurance may cover the cost of the oral appliance with a referral.)
