A Tip from Your Family Dentist - Dr. Patrick Shine

Sleep Apnea Q & A
What is sleep apnea?
Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder consisting of irregular pauses in breathing or episodes of abnormally low breathing during sleep.
How do I know if I have sleep apnea?
Based on a sleep study or various symptoms, your physician is able to diagnose you. They will likely recommend a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine. However, this is not a preferable option for everyone, as the CPAP machines are often large, cumbersome, and noisy.
Why does Tria Dental Tysons offer sleep apnea treatment?
We know a good night’s sleep is vital for you to perform at your best. When you are well-rested, your body is healthy and your heart functions at its best, contributing to improved function and thinking ability.
What can I expect at my sleep apnea consult?
At your consultation, we’ll talk about the initial appointment you had with your physician and the alternative to the CPAP machine. We’ll then take impressions of your teeth, which will help us create the small, portable appliance that will give you a pleasant night of sleep. Once your custom appliance is ready, we’ll see how the appliance fits in relation to your bite. You’ll then receive the appliance at your next appointment, completing the entire process in about two weeks. Finally, you can enjoy sleeping.
Does the appliance hurt? Do I have to wear it every night?
The sleep apnea appliance perfectly fits your teeth and does not hurt at all. It is possible to experience a little bit of mouth dryness though. In order to achieve the expected results, you will need to wear your sleep appliance every night.
Sleep studies from our sleep apnea treatments have revealed improved heart rates, regular breathing, and eliminated teeth grinding and snoring. Consult with Tria Dental Tysons today to see how we are helping patients with sleep apnea in Tysons Corner and Vienna, VA. You’ll be on your way to sleeping like a baby in no time.
Instead, many patients suffering from sleep apnea are able to use a small, unobtrusive, portable appliance supplied by dentists.
