North Attleborough Sleep Apnea Treatment
From crowns and bridges and periodontal therapy to North Attleborough sleep apnea treatment, we at Advanced Dental Care have a range of treatment options available for all kinds of patient needs. Many people suffer from sleep apnea, but they don’t even know it. In fact, more than three million people per year are diagnosed with this ailment, according to The Mayo Clinic. Most of the patients we see for North Attleborough sleep apnea treatment are over age 40. However, it is possible for young adults and even children to have this condition – and to be treated for it by Advanced Dental Care – as well.
There are quite a few symptoms that can point to sleep apnea, although many of them are confusing because they could signify a different kind of issue, too. Some common symptoms are loud snoring, feeling very tired despite sleeping all night, headaches, and to find yourself falling asleep easily and frequently throughout the day. The most common sign of apnea, though, is irregular breathing during sleep. This breathing could be louder, more shallow and/or can come through the mouth instead of the nose. Often, patients who come into Advanced Dental Care with apnea-related issues weren’t aware of the issue until a wife or partner sleeping in the same room alerted them to their irregular breathing patterns.
As Apnea is a chronic condition, it typically will not go away without treatment. Luckily, treatment is painless and there are a few different avenues patients can take to remedy the situation. For mild to moderate cases of apnea, many patients of Advanced Dental Care see improvements just from physical exercise and weight loss. In other cases, we may prescribe the most common North Attleborough sleep apnea treatment, a CPAP, or Continuous Positive Airway Pressure device. This is worn over the nose and/or mouth and can treat sleep apnea effectively for most patients.
If you need North Attleborough sleep apnea treatment Advanced Dental Care offers a non-invasive solution. We are open six days a week, so call or email us today to set up your next examination.
North Attleborough Sleep Apnea
If you are experiencing snoring loud enough to disturb another in your room, or even in your house, it is definitely time to visit your North Attleborough sleeping disorder dentist at Advanced Dental Care. Snoring is a very common problem, and can actually be relatively harmless. However, loud habitual snoring can be an indication of a serious health problem such as sleep apnea. A visit to Advanced Dental Care can help you with this potentially serious problem.
Your North Attleborough sleeping disorder dentist, at Advanced Dental Care, will explain that snoring occurs in the upper airway as you breathe in air. The snoring sound shows that your airway is partially blocked. This blockage is usually caused by the soft tissue in your throat. As you breathe the air causes the tissue to vibrate and the vibration sound exits out of your nose and/or mouth. There are several ways to know if you are snoring. Sometimes you are sweetly, or not so sweetly given this information by your sleep-deprived partner. Other ways you may know that you are snoring is that you actually wake yourself up, or you consistently wake up in the morning with a dry mouth or sore throat. It is interesting to know that snoring occurs in men, women and even children. It also is known to run in families. However, if you snore loudly you may have a form of sleep apnea. In sleep apnea, the tissue in the upper airway completely blocks the airway; this causes you to temporarily stop breathing. This blockage keeps oxygen for reaching your heart and brain. In extreme cases it will cause you to temporarily wake up. Additionally if you have sleep apnea you may make choking or snorting sounds in your sleep, or feel tired during the day. Sleep apnea can be diagnosed at a sleep center or by a board certified sleep physician.
While doctors can operate in severe cases of sleep apnea, there are other treatments that can be provided by your North Attleborough sleeping disorder dentist at Advanced Dental Care. We can provide an oral appliance that is specially designed and fitted to keep an open, unobstructed airway in the throat. It is only worn during sleep. We find that custom fitted oral appliances are effective. Those that can be purchased over-the-counter at a local drugstore are not recommended. In many people, weight loss may also help lessen the snoring as the amount of tissue is decreased, thus resulting in less or no airway blockage. If you think you may suffer from sleep apnea, come visit our dentist at Advanced Dental Care. It may prove to be a critical step in safeguarding your health.

There are plenty of things that can take a toll on your dental health. Many people may not realize just how much their dental health impacts their overall health.

Dental crowns may seem simple, but they can have a significant effect on your overall dental health as well as your comfort. An uneven bite can impact your dental and oral health. Teeth that do not meet as evenly as they should meet can put a significant amount of strain on your bite as well as any surrounding teeth and can create future issues. Here at Advanced Dental Care, our North Attleborough cosmetic dentist, Dr. Arkady Naiman, can provide you with the dental crowns that you need to finally even out your bite. Dental crowns can be used to fill out your teeth, restore its shape and its function, and finally make your bite evenly meet again. Dental crowns will be made to match your surrounding teeth in both shape and color for a seamless result. Dental crowns are most often used following root canal therapy. Since root canal therapy often leaves part of the tooth missing, the decayed portion that was removed, a dental crown is used to restore the tooth to its original shape and size. Dental crowns can also be used to cover discolored or yellowed tooth roots and create a seamless white appearance when you open your mouth to speak or smile.
No matter what your dental needs are, our North Attleborough cosmetic dentist, Dr. Arkady is here at Advanced Dental Care to help. If you need dental crowns or any other general or cosmetic dental work done our dentist here at Advanced Dental Care can provide you with the comprehensive care that you require.
