Dental Sleep Treatment

When it comes to ensuring a good night's sleep, your dentist becomes a vital partner, standing at the forefront of your overall well-being. Picture your dentist as a trusted ally, ready to uncover and tackle any sleep-related concerns. Here's how our dental team can be your first step toward a rejuvenating night's rest.

Consider your mouth a gateway to your holistic health, and our skilled dental team is adept at spotting subtle signs that may hint at sleep issues. From detecting wear patterns on your teeth—a potential indicator of teeth grinding (bruxism), often linked to sleep disorders—to identifying a scalloped tongue, showcasing potential tongue-tie or improper tongue posture during sleep. We're attuned to the nuances that reveal themselves in your oral health.

Dry mouth, a frequent outcome of mouth breathing during sleep, can also be a signal of sleep-disordered breathing. By addressing these oral health cues, our team contributes to a comprehensive understanding of your unique sleep profile.

Given that many individuals maintain more regular visits to their dentist than their primary healthcare provider, this consistent interaction allows us to build an in-depth knowledge of your health history, including sleep patterns. Dentists are thus well-equipped to kickstart conversations about sleep quality, offering a proactive approach to potential issues.

Engage our team in your sleep journey, and you tap into professionals who not only grasp the intricacies of oral health but also acknowledge its profound connection to overall well-being. Share your sleep concerns during your appointment, opening the door to a collaborative strategy that aims to elevate your sleep quality and enhance your overall health.

While traditional approaches like CPAP and inspire surgery remain effective, our dental sleep therapy options offer unique benefits:

  • NightLase: Non-invasive, no equipment required, addressing snoring and mild sleep apnea.

  • Oral Appliances: Comfortable and portable, providing an alternative to CPAP for those with mild to moderate sleep apnea.

  • Myofunctional Therapy: Addresses underlying causes by improving oral muscle function and promoting nasal breathing.

  • Lifestyle Modification: Holistic approach to improve overall sleep quality through habits, diet and environmental changes.

These options can complement each other, allowing for co-therapy to maximize effectiveness. For example, combining NightLase with myofunctional therapy may provide a synergistic effect in addressing sleep concerns.

Is a routine dental appointment the right time to discuss sleep-related concerns and treatments?

A routine dental appointment primarily focuses on preventive care and general oral health. However, we understand the importance of addressing sleep-related concerns. If you have specific sleep-related issues or are interested in learning more about our sleep treatments, we recommend scheduling a separate appointment dedicated to discussing your sleep concerns. This allows us to allocate sufficient time to thoroughly understand your needs and provide personalized recommendations. For added convenience, we offer virtual screening via teledentistry for individuals residing in Texas, making it easier for you to access our expertise from the comfort of your home.

Do you provide sleep studies?

Yes, we offer a take home sleep studies using the SleepImage System, an FDA-cleared Software as a Medical Device (SaMD) for use with children from age 2, adolescents, and adults. This system utilizes a photoplethysmography sensor (PPG) applied at the finger to record heart rate, oxygen saturation, respiratory analysis, and sleep time. The system tracks various physiological signals, including peripheral arterial tone, heart rate, heart rate variability, blood oxygenation, changes in breathing, and movement.
