Sleep Apnea Solutions at Sherwood Dental in Oakville, ON Area

Obstructive sleep apnea is a sleeping disorder that causes more than just snoring and restless nights. This condition can impact one’s quality of life and daily activities due to sleep deprivation. Obstructive sleep apnea results in a blockage in the airways, causing patients to awaken hundreds of times a night when they think they are getting a good night’s rest. Obstructive sleep apnea can cause daytime symptoms, which include fatigue, poor memory, difficulty concentrating, and other effects that can be caused by sleep deprivation. When diagnosed with this disorder, Oakville, Ontario, area patients are often told to use a CPAP machine. This is a device worn at night when patients sleep to keep the airway open. However, many patients do not comply with this treatment and are interested in alternative solutions. If you are seeking a treatment option for obstructive sleep apnea that eliminates the need for a CPAP machine, you can speak to Drs. Stephen Gaines and Arti Patel of Sherwood Dental.

What are some ways to address the symptoms and problems associated with obstructive sleep apnea?

While CPAPs are commonly used for patients struggling with getting a good night’s sleep, they can be cumbersome and uncomfortable. This causes many patients to stop using them, resulting in noncompliance with treatment recommendations from medical professionals. The symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea will return without effective treatment. At this point, our team may make alternative suggestions based on the cause of the condition. This may include:

  • Limiting the consumption of alcohol
  • Stopping the use of sleep medications and other pharmaceuticals that might be conflicting with sleep
  • Improving sleep patterns
  • Changing sleeping positions
  • Losing weight for patients who are over their ideal weight for their frame and height
  • Using nasal strips or sprays for easier breathing
  • Asking their dentist about an oral appliance for obstructive sleep apnea
We are here to help you get the perfect smile.

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!

Fabulous Dental Practice - First off they value your time as much as you do. The entire team is happy to work there, which shows in the way they treat the clients. The equipment is top notch. I'm very happy even if they find a cavity.

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.
