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.

At North River Dental, we advise patients to maintain a healthy weight, avoid alcohol and sedatives before bedtime, and establish a consistent sleep routine.

Our team collaborates with patients to incorporate these changes alongside tailored dental interventions for comprehensive Sleep Apnea management.

At North River Dental, we recommend biannual visits to monitor oral health, assess the effectiveness of treatment, and make necessary adjustments to oral appliances.

I got the smile I always wanted! I chose these folks because of all the positive reviews I found on Google. Looks like they’re gonna get another one. Doc Steinberg is the real deal and I will definitely be recommending this office to all my family and friends. I had to make multiple trips due the extent of work required, and I was greeted with a warm smile and friendly service every time. I can’t say enough about the people in this office and how pleasant my experience was. Yes a pleasant experience at the dentist! Go figure.

My husband and I made the decision to try NRD after having some bad experiences at our last dental office. We were both blown away by how welcoming the staff at NRD were. Thank you Bonnie, Vanessa, Dr Raj, and Tayla for making my first exam and cleaning so enjoyable!

This is the best dentist office you could ever go to.They all are great. They treat you so kind, especially Bobbie Jo and the Dr. I was never a fan of going to the dentist as most of us are not, right, but the experience I have had at NRD has changed all that. I enjoy going to the dentist now and you will too, I promise, just give them a call.

I felt very comfortable from the moment I walked in. Kelly was an excellent guide through the entire evaluation. Drs. Delarose and Steinberg were informative, friendly and comforting with my uneasiness at being in a dental office. I plan on coming back and starting my dental journey right here!

When half a tooth fell out unexpectedly, on referral from a friend, I went to North River Dental. I have received what I perceive to be above standard service. So far, I’ve gained a new crown, lost a bad tooth, had a cleaning, and plan for a deep cleaning. All of this was done with the newest of images and diagnostic tools coupled with really friendly and effective professionalism. I definitely recommend this group for anyone wanting help with mouth issues.

11/9/23 1 week ago Dr. Raj finished a root canal on my left upper eye tooth & did a wonderful job. He is known as the root canal specialist. He lets you know what he is doing & why he is doing it. He is very gentle & has a great sense of humor. On Friday of that same week I broke my left upper molar after the office had closed. On Monday morning I called the office and told the receptionist about my broken tooth and they fit me in by 10:00am that day. The whole office staff is great. They’re very accommodating & polite, but I do miss the chocolate chip cookies they used to serve. Niki B.
