Sleep Apnea Dentist in Waxhaw, NC

Dream Without Disruption

The silent disruptor of restful sleep

Sleep apnea is a common yet often undiagnosed sleep disorder that can significantly impact your health and quality of life. It occurs when your breathing repeatedly stops and starts during sleep.

  • Obstructive sleep apnea: occurs when throat muscles relax.
  • Central sleep apnea: occurs when your brain doesn’t send proper signals to the muscles that control breathing.

Treatment often involves lifestyle changes, mouthpieces, breathing devices, and sometimes surgery to ensure a good night’s sleep and better health. Our Waxhaw sleep apnea dentists Dr. Anait and Dr. Armen are committed to providing comprehensive treatment, ensuring that your journey to better sleep starts with a solid foundation of health.

How sleep apnea treatment enhancesyour life

  • Improves overall sleep quality, leading to better rest and energy levels.
  • Reduces the risk of health issues linked to untreated sleep apnea, like heart disease and stroke.
  • Enhances mental clarity and reduces daytime fatigue, improving your productivity.
  • Alleviates loud snoring, benefiting both you and your sleep partner.

What to expect during sleep apnea treatment

1. We start with a detailed sleep analysis to understand the severity of your sleep apnea. This may involve overnight monitoring at a sleep center.

2. Based on the results, we might recommend a CPAP device or an oral appliance. These devices are designed to maintain open airways while you sleep.

3. We’ll provide you with a temporary solution to use until your custom-fitted device is ready.

4. In about 2-4 weeks, you’ll receive your personalized treatment device. We’ll ensure it fits perfectly and addresses your specific needs, leading to improved sleep and overall health.
