At Financial District Dentistry, our dentists and team offer treatment options for sleep apnea, a common yet often overlooked sleep disorder. Understanding the critical impact of sleep on overall health, we are dedicated to providing our patients with effective solutions to improve their sleep quality and, by extension, their life quality.

Understanding Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is characterized by repeated pauses in breathing during sleep, leading to disrupted sleep and decreased oxygen levels in the blood. Common symptoms include loud snoring, daytime fatigue and morning headaches. If left untreated, sleep apnea can lead to more serious health issues, such as high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes. 

Sleep Apnea Treatment Options

Our approach to treating sleep apnea involves a thorough evaluation to determine the most effective treatment tailored to each patient’s specific needs. Treatment options include:

  • Oral Appliance Therapy: Custom-fitted dental devices that adjust the position of the jaw and tongue to keep the airway open during sleep.
  • CPAP Therapy Through Your Primary Physician: Continuous positive airway pressure devices that deliver air through a mask to keep the airway open.
  • Lifestyle Modifications: Recommendations on weight management, sleep position and avoiding alcohol and sedatives before bedtime.


Benefits of Treatment

  • Improved Sleep Quality: Enjoy a deeper, more restful night’s sleep.
  • Reduced Health Risks: Lower your risk for associated health complications.
  • Increased Energy and Focus: Wake up feeling refreshed and alert.
