Sleep Apnea Treatment

Sleep Apnea

If you experience snoring or obstructive sleep apnea, keeping your family awake with your snores is the least of your concerns. If left untreated, obstructive sleep apnea can lead to serious medical problems, such as an increased risk of heart attack, stroke, diabetes, and other serious illnesses. Choosing a dentist who is qualified to handle sleep disorders and willing to work with your physician is essential to your health or the health of your loved one.

Neither snoring nor sleep apnea should be taken lightly, as your health could be at stake. Obstructive sleep apnea is a serious medical condition that is associated with cardiac problems, high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes, ED, gastro-esophageal reflux disease, and numerous other medical concerns. Current research explores the complex interrelationships between sleep apnea and the aforementioned medical problems. Management by a dentist should always involve your family physician and any specialists who are involved in your healthcare.

Legally, any dentist can treat snoring and/or sleep apnea with an oral appliance; that does not mean, however, that your overall health is being addressed. Because no special qualifications are required, it is your responsibility to choose your dentist wisely. A qualified sleep-disorders dentist should have:

  • Extensive knowledge of sleep medicine and oral appliance research
  • Training in oral appliance therapy
  • Experience with multiple appliance types
  • Relationships with local sleep labs and sleep physicians
  • Knowledge of emerging trends
  • Ability to derive maximum insurance benefits for you
  • Willingness to work with other professionals
  • A proven follow-up system to ensure healthy, long-term results

If you think you may have sleep apnea, please complete our online questionnaire. If you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea and cannot tolerate a CPAP device, our office can help. Our doctors are educated and have extensive experience treating snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.

Patient Reviews

  • Dr. Shlom is awesome!! He always writes a personal “thank you” note after my treatments & the office staff are professional & friendly…P.S. –the mint-scented gas masks are the best!

  • Dr. Shlom and the staff are very patient and knowledgeable. He was extremely patient, calming and quick with my nervous son’s tooth extraction. I love the atmosphere and the care that my child receives here.

  • Honestly the best dentist around i have seen all 3. Although you may have to wait it is well worth the time spent! They have helped me over come so many fears and helped me get back on track with a healthy oral lifestyle! Love each and every one of the staff!

  • I got some work done on Monday. First time visit. I was not expecting to get the work done that day at all! Dr. Shlom and his team were great! I got my mail today and received a hand written letter from Dr. Shlom saying I did great and hoped I wasn’t in too much pain. Also if I needed anything to give him a call. Let’s just say he now has my husband and I as clients for life!

  • I was terrified about all the Root Canal stories. As mine was going on, the Doc stopped & I asked how much longer (waiting for this so called pain) & he said “We are done”! I was amazed. They worked with me on payments, are always friendly but unfortunately, I have moved out of the area & have NOT got my teeth cleaned & will not do so until I can get to this place…….I have had to many issues in my life with Dentists & now I found a GOOD one, I will wait! Thank you all & hope to see you soon. S.K.
