Sunshine Dentists in Burke, VA

Burke Sleep Apnea Treatment

Your NOVA Dentist is Here to Help

Your Sunshine Dentists in Northern Virginia want to talk to you about something we’re trained on known as obstructive sleep apnea (sometimes referred to as OSA or sleep apnea). However, before we throw any technical jargon at you or clinical information, we feel the effects of sleep apnea are better understood by patients when we break it down like this:

  • Do you snore loudly every night (and maybe not even know it)?
  • Has your bed partner been banished from bed due to your loud snoring?
  • Are you waking up every morning still tired and unrested?
  • Have you experienced more and more headaches?
  • Are you having trouble staying awake during the day?
  • Have you had enough with your CPAP, and it’s time to admit intolerance?

All of these signs (among many others) can be your body’s way of telling you that you’re not getting enough sleep or the proper sleep you need to stay healthy. This can lead to a long list of oral health issues and problems with your overall health.

How Can My NOVA Dentist Help Me Sleep Better?

They might seem like the last person you’d speak with about getting more sleep, but your dentist is highly trained and highly skilled in understanding facial and cranial anatomies. If you suspect the presence of sleep apnea either in yourself or someone in your family, we hope that you’ll contact us. We can refer you to a sleep apnea specialist where they can set you up with a take-home sleep study to diagnose the precise extent of your snoring. From there, we can work with you to find the most appropriate, comfortable, and affordable sleep apnea solution.

We Don’t Rest Until You Do

Every person is different, but depending on your situation, we can create a dorsal-type, oral appliance that’s customized to fit your smile’s every curve in comfort. Are you CPAP intolerant? We understand! This is actually more common than you think. Very few people can get a good night’s sleep while having a CPAP mask stuck to their faces. If this sounds like you or someone you love, speak with Dr. Donohue and Dr. Ellis about your alternative options.
