The Consequences of Sleep Apnea

Are you struggling to find energy throughout the day? Do you wake up feeling tired and unrested? Obstructive sleep apnea is a common condition, especially among men, that can sometimes go undiagnosed, as it occurs during sleep. Along with daytime fatigue, sleep apnea can have other symptoms, in addition to being a serious medical condition. If you think you may be suffering from sleep apnea, we encourage you to visit our office for a consultation. Properly treating sleep apnea not only helps you receive the restful sleep you need to function during the day, but can lower the risk for more serious health conditions from developing.

Conquer Sleeplessness With Innovative Solutions

Though the most common treatment option for sleep apnea is the CPAP machine, most patients discover that it is invasive and bulky. For patients who are CPAP intolerant, we offer different types of oral appliances. These mouth guards are made of the highest quality and are custom-fit to your mouth. Oral appliances help keep the lower jaw in a forward position during sleep to help keep airways open, minimizing snoring and pauses in breathing. Many patients find that these mouth guards are more comfortable, less invasive, minimize snoring, and help improve their sleep.

Sleep Restfully, Wake Rested

When sleep apnea is treated correctly, patients can experience great improvements on their quality of sleep, the restfulness they feel upon waking, and increased energy throughout the day. We take a conservative approach to your treatment, especially for those who know they are CPAP intolerant. With custom treatment, you can enjoy both a rested sleep and an energized day!

What is Sleep Apnea, and how does it affect oral health?
Sleep Apnea is a condition where breathing pauses during sleep, impacting oxygen intake. At North River Dental, we understand its connection to oral health. Untreated sleep apnea can contribute to gum disease, teeth grinding, and other dental issues. Our comprehensive approach includes assessing and addressing oral health concerns linked to sleep apnea for a holistic treatment plan.
Absolutely. At North River Dental in Ellenton, FL, our experienced team can play a crucial role in managing Sleep Apnea. Through custom-fit oral appliances, we aim to reposition the jaw and tongue to keep airways open during sleep. This non-invasive approach can provide significant relief, improving sleep quality and overall health. Consult with our experts to explore personalized solutions for your Sleep Apnea concerns.
Recognizing signs of Sleep Apnea is vital. Look out for loud snoring, sudden awakenings accompanied by a choking or gasping sound, and persistent daytime fatigue. Our team at North River Dental encourages early identification of these symptoms for a timely diagnosis and tailored treatment. Addressing Sleep Apnea promptly can prevent potential oral health issues and enhance your overall well-being.
Diagnosing Sleep Apnea involves a sleep study, usually conducted at a sleep center. North River Dental collaborates with specialists to facilitate the diagnosis process. If Sleep Apnea is suspected, our team will guide you through the necessary steps, ensuring a thorough examination. Early detection allows for timely intervention and the implementation of effective oral health strategies to manage Sleep Apnea.
Yes, oral appliances provided at North River Dental can be an alternative to CPAP machines. These custom-fit devices are designed to reposition the jaw, preventing airway obstruction during sleep. Unlike CPAP machines, oral appliances are more comfortable, portable, and easier to use. Our team will work with you to determine the most suitable treatment option based on your specific needs and preferences.
Untreated Sleep Apnea can have profound effects on dental health. North River Dental emphasizes the connection between Sleep Apnea and conditions like dry mouth, teeth grinding (bruxism), and an increased risk of gum disease. Our comprehensive approach not only addresses Sleep Apnea but also focuses on preventing and managing associated dental issues for optimal oral health.

At North River Dental, we advise patients to maintain a healthy weight, avoid alcohol and sedatives before bedtime, and establish a consistent sleep routine. Additionally, sleeping on your side can help prevent airway obstruction. Our team collaborates with patients to incorporate these changes alongside tailored dental interventions for comprehensive Sleep Apnea management.
Regular dental check-ups are crucial for individuals with Sleep Apnea. At North River Dental, we recommend biannual visits to monitor oral health, assess the effectiveness of treatment, and make necessary adjustments to oral appliances. Consistent follow-ups allow us to address any emerging dental issues promptly and ensure your overall well-being while effectively managing Sleep Apnea.
Yes, children can experience Sleep Apnea, and it can impact their oral health. North River Dental is experienced in assessing pediatric Sleep Apnea cases.

Kristin was WONDERFUL as a dental hygienist. I hope she remains with NRD. I couldn’t ask for better service. It was also great that she set up Dr. Steinberg to review my x-rays and see me for the last time before he retires. I have been a patient since 2003 and I am sad to see Dr. Steinberg leave – the whole organization has been like family all these years. God Bless everyone who remains with NRD. Thank you for excellent service.

I went to another local dentist and they couldn’t schedule my cleaning for 6 months and even cancelled my appointment months before it was to even happen! Found this place and they got me in so quickly and the staff was so patient and accommodating. Scheduling is so easy and they are quick! I’m so happy to have found them!

New to North River Dental. Broke a tooth. They got me in the next day, put a temporary crown in, and now waiting for the permanent one. The staff and dentist were friendly, thorough, and efficient. The cost was lower than they originally quoted me, so they are honest too. So far, so good!

I’m not a client of North River Dental,instead I’m apart of their extended family. This is how I feel about the staff,and the quality of care exceeded the 5 stars. That’s why I constantly recommend it to family and friends.

I had bad experiences as a kid going to the dentist and I have anxiety when I go. So I stayed away from dentists. Needless to say my teeth got bad as I aged. I needed dentures and I went to North River Dental for implants and I was quite anxious about the procedure. The dentist and staff were very understanding and explained the process to me. My fears soon left as the procedure was painless and the outcome was great. It’s been 3 years since I had it done and I’m glad I chose the folks at North River.
