Do You Snore? You’re Not Alone. 1 in 4 Adults Has Some Form of Sleep-Disorder Breathing

Sleepiness and Snoring are possible symptoms of sleep apnea.

Did you know that one in every four adults has some form of sleep-disorder breathing?  Common symptoms include excessive daytime sleepiness, poor concentration, snoring and depression.

Could this be you?

During sleep, the upper airway muscles relax and the airway can become obstructed, often heard as snoring.

Sleep apnea and snoring often occur together, causing your airway to narrow, vibrate or collapse.

A complete collapse of the airway is called obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). It is the most common type of sleep disorder breathing and each obstructive event may last for 10 seconds or longer.

Your occasional snoring could lead to serious risks.

Did you know, it is estimated that 22 million Americans suffer from sleep apnea, with 80% of the cases undiagnosed?  Many people have sleep apnea and don’t even know it.

Research and scientific evidence tells us that the great majority of people who snore already have, or eventually will develop, obstructive sleep apnea on some level.

This means what you think is an annoyance or inconvenience to your bed partner or other people in the house could actually be, or become, a serious health problem with serious consequences.  If you know or have been told that you snore it’s important for you to have this checked out.

Why get treated?

  • Apneas disrupt sleep patterns and prevent you from getting deep, refreshing sleep.  Sleep apnea can also lead to:
  • Cardiovascular diseases
  • Poor physical and cognitive performance
  • Daytime sleepiness
  • Weight gain

Oral appliance therapy is an effective treatment option for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.

There are over 100 different oral appliances that are FDA approved for the treatment of snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. These appliances are made to be worn like a mouth guard while you sleep. They keep the tongue and muscles in the upper airway from collapsing and hold the lower jaw forward just enough to keep the airway open. We offer sleep testing in the comfort of your home to diagnose your sleep conditions and qualify you for insurance reimbursement for your specific dental sleep treatment.

Advantages of Oral Appliance Therapy

  • Comfortable
  • Easy to wear
  • Quiet
  • Portable
  • Easy to care for
  • We are proud to have added a doctor that has earned a degree to be a certified dental sleep practitioner. Dr. Marsh has had a long successful career in dentistry, and has since graduated from Tufts Dental school curriculum of dental sleep medicine. Having Dr. Marsh on site is extremely convenient to our patients. They no longer have to visit a sleep specialist outside of our office, and we supply oral appliance therapy right here in our office!

First Class Facility. Modern equipment. Professional service. This is what I have come to expect from Drs' Steve and Helyne and their entire staff.

It's the fanciest dentist I have ever been to. I really like the moisturizing heated hand treatment they offer while you're getting your teeth cleaned. They have lots of other little extras that make this place stand out above the rest. The cleaning and exam were pretty typical, but no complaints. I'm always wary of getting advice to replace fillings when they aren't bothering me, but that didn't happen.

Great experience as always!!! State of the art office with a friendly and professional staff. I would not trust any other practice with my dental care.

My first visit consisted of a consultation with Dr, Helyne Hamelburg whom I found to be very calm and relaxing as I am not a fan of any dental procedure. I will be having gum surgery in a few weeks and am actually not fearing the procedure which I have been putting off for years. Office is certainly state of the art which I had never experienced anything like it. Glad she was recommended to me by another Doctor who knew she would be a good fit for me.

The providers, hygienists, the entire staff are wonderful. I can't recommend them enough. They are efficient, courteous, and the office is inviting. I never thought I would say this about a dental office, but I get relaxed there. You get treated like your the only patient they have.
Jessica O.
