Man sleeping with face down on a pillow with the sign : Sleep Apnea Can Be Dangerous

Are snoring and waking up hundreds of times throughout the night part of your nightly routine? If so, you may have a common problem called Sleep Apnea. If you are single, you may not even be aware of your snoring and waking. If you have a partner, you are most likely aware as this can be very disruptive to your partner’s sleep as well as your own. However, Sleep Apnea is far more serious than just a simple nuisance. If not properly diagnosed and treated, it can be dangerous and even life-threatening.

Sleep Apnea has been associated with a number of serious health conditions including hypertension, heart attacks and strokes. Millions of Americans currently suffer from Sleep Apnea. What is more concerning is the fact that an estimated 81% to 95% of Sleep Apnea sufferers are not diagnosed.

In the past, CPAP machines were the only effective method for treating Sleep Apnea. While these machines are highly effective, many patients found them to be  unwieldy, awkward, cumbersome and uncomfortable. Thankfully, today there are a number of effective alternatives to CPAP than can be used to treat Sleep Apnea.

If you think you may be suffering from Sleep Apnea, the first step is to obtain a proper diagnosis. This can be achieved by participating in a sleep study. A sleep study is where your sleep is filmed and closely monitored for an entire night. The results of your sleep study are then interpreted by a sleep specialist (a doctor who specializes in treating sleep disorders). Once you have a proper diagnosis, your doctor and dentist can work together to find the most suitable treatment or combination of treatments. Many dental offices now offer custom-made appliances that can be worn in the mouth at night during sleep. These custom-made mouth appliances are much more comfortable than the CPAP machine but are also effective in preventing Sleep Apnea.

If you have Sleep Apnea, you are losing more than your sleep! Talk to your dentist today and find out about the treatments that are available to help you treat this serious condition.

This dental practice is a gem! The front desk staff are kind, efficient and welcoming. I was pleasantly surprised at the clinical staff’s fantastic bedside manner. Everything was explained in advance and this was very appreciated. My teeth have never felt better! Love, love, love the hygienist that worked with me. She is a rockstar. Thank you to the whole gang!

I've been going to Crabapple dental for many years and I can honestly say Dr. Roberts and her team are by far the best. It's hard to find a good dentist that takes the time to get to know you and truly cares about your health. I knew Dr. Roberts was special when she filled a few cavities for me, then called me later that night to make sure I was ok. I feel at home when I'm there and they always treat me so well. Kelly is so wonderful! She takes her time and makes going to the dentist an easy task. I never stress about going because I know she'll take care of me. She is so pleasant and efficient; truly the best experience and I leave feeling great. Both Kelly and Dr. Roberts are so gentle and that is the most important thing to me. Dr. Roberts has the most updated equipment and beautiful office to give the best experience. I travel from downtown to see them because they are the best! Don't hesitate to make an appointment; you won't be disappointed!!

This is by far the most customer focused dental practice I’ve ever experienced. Starting with Dr Roberts and her entire staff! Immediately I felt I was a priority and my anxiety slowly disappeared. She has state of the art technology and is a pleasure to work with!! She contacted me after hours to check on me after certain procedures!! Highly recommend!!!! A very warm and nurturing environment!!
