Sleep Apnea Solutions
At Smile Lab, we take a holistic approach to treatment, meaning we like to prioritize our patient’s overall health and this includes sleep health. Sleep apnea, or as it is commonly known obstructive sleep apnea, not only disrupts a person’s sleep by narrowing the airways at night, but can be potentially life-threatening, putting you at a higher risk of a stroke or heart attack.
Fortunately, this disorder can be managed with a range of treatments, but oral appliance therapy is a hassle-free way to control obstructive sleep apnea. The oral appliance comfortably holds the jaw open at night, allowing the airways to open up and oxygen to enter the lungs. Some benefits of this type of therapy are:
- Non-invasive – No surgery is needed
- Ease of use – Some patients prefer oral appliances because they can be easy to wear
- Small and easy to transport – Traveling with your sleep apnea treatment is easy, and they can be fitted into your handbag or carry-on luggage
Not to mention these appliances are one of the best and most affordable ways to manage sleep apnea, giving you a restful night’s sleep back. Have you recently been diagnosed with sleep apnea and want to know more? Book an appointment with us today and we can talk you through the best treatment for your needs.
Teeth Grinding Solutions
Teeth grinding can occur day or night and for some it can be a habit they do subconsciously. Grinding teeth at night is quite common and although it may occur only for a few seconds at a time, it can be enough to make a lasting impact. You may need to be fitted for a night guard, that can help you protect your teeth and prevent serious damage from occurring. This night guard will be customized to your mouth so it will be comfortable while you sleep.
If you are waking up with a sore jaw, headache or you notice chipped or weakened teeth, book an appointment with Smile Lab’s New York, NY clinic so our expert dentist Dr. Waise Ebrahimi can examine your mouth and jaw muscles for signs of teeth grinding and provide the best solution for you.
