Sleep Apnea Snoring Treatment in Oakville Area


In Oakville Area Dentists Explains the Relationship Between Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Dentistry

Does your sleeping partner complain about your chronic snoring? While this nighttime habit might be annoying for your bed partner, it is often not a huge concern. However, in some instances, the presence of chronic snoring may be an indication of a more serious health concern called obstructive sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea, sometimes shortened to OSA, is a sleep disorder that causes patients to be unable to reach deep, restorative levels of sleep. This is due to blockages in the airways that wake them up hundreds of times in one night. Oakville, Ontario patients who have been diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea, may be offered solutions for treatment such as the CPAP machine. Unfortunately, because these devices are uncomfortable and difficult to sleep in, many patients stop complying with treatment. Instead, the team at Sherwood Dental is pleased to offer an alternative solution with obstructive sleep apnea oral appliance therapy.

How does oral appliance therapy work?

Oral appliance therapy is a treatment option for patients who have been diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea through a sleep doctor or their primary care physician. While CPAP machines are effective at treating, they are often not used by patients because they are cumbersome, uncomfortable, and difficult to travel with. Drs. Stephen Gaines and Arti Patel of Sherwood Dental encourage patients to consider the advantages of oral appliance therapy. Oral appliance therapy requires patients to wear a small, comfortable mouthguard while they sleep to maintain open airways and allow patients to get a restful night’s sleep without a nasal mask and large device. It holds down the tongue and aligns the jaw to keep the airways open without the need for a CPAP machine.

The staff at Sherwood Dental have always been awesome. I never have to wait more than a few minutes for my appt, they are very prompt and efficient. They also always try to resolve my issues the first time I mention them. I feel that Dr. Gaines does not perform procedures that are not necessary, just to make money, as he has honestly told me before that I do not need certain things, when my previous dentist told me that I did (and Dr. Gaines told me why my other dentist may have suggested it, and why he did not necessary agree). Love these guys!

About as much fun you can have with going to the dentist. The professional and caring attitude of the dentists, hygienists, and office staff make you feel like part of their family. And if you and the Argonauts are lucky, you might get to see the Grey Cup along with a few players they look after.
