What Is Sleep Apnea Treatment?

The disorder known as sleep apnea is recognized by repeated stops in breathing during sleep. This is the result of your muscles relaxing and gravity pulling close your airways. The brief suffocation that results produces excessive stress on the body, which may cause heart complications, such as hypertension, memory loss, mood change, weight gain, and fatigue. There are many snoring or sleep apnea alternatives to choose from, ranging from airway surgeries, like an adenoidectomy, maxillofacial surgery, tonsillectomy, or a CPAP device. Sometimes, people aren't satisfied with these solutions. In such situations, they might turn to dental choices to help solve the issue. At Contemporary Dentistry in Fairfax, VA or Manassas, VA, we concentrate on creating customized nighttime guards to offer relief to our sleep apnea patients. Our dental experts are proud to offer you this simple, comfy, and dependable service that will help you attain better health and well-being.

What to Expect from Sleep Apnea Treatment

Sleep apnea therapy at Contemporary Dentistry utilizes what is known as oral appliance therapy (OAT), which can be an extremely effective treatment for sleep apnea. It is a custom-made device that fits in your mouth at night. It can be compared to a retainer or mouth guard used by athletes. The most important difference is that instead of protecting your teeth against trauma, it gently pulls the jaw into a forward position to continue to keep your airway open. There are over a hundred unique versions on the market so our dental experts will work with you to ensure that you receive the most suitable one for you. This will be determined after we perform an evaluation of your tongue, airway, teeth, and jaw. You'll also have oral x-rays taken to show detailed impressions of your teeth for your dental appliance.

UPDATE: January 2024. My 6th year with Dr. Morales. Had another cleaning. As usual, great experience. I don't have insurance, so I am happy they still honor Aetna's discount membership for real savings. Started to learn Spanish and I can practice it in real life...and for free! Hasta la proxima vez ! UPDATE: January 2023. Just had the cleaning done, after five years still a satisfied customer. This is my second review for this excellent office. After neglecting my teeth for quite some time a broken toothed forced me to visit a dentist. After a research on the web and subsequent phone calls I settled for the Contemporary Dentistry of Manassas. One of the reason was that not having insurance the office accepts Aetna Savings Plans, basically a discount for the services. The discounts are real as I found out calling some other offices. My first visit was in January 2018. I have had numerous procedures done since then (altogether 30 - thirty - visits) ranging from deep cleaning, numerous cavities and including one implant and two crowns. All work was done in the office, the quality of work has been 100%+, I have never experienced nay 'post-procedure' pains or complications. The staff is very friendly and I am very happy I picked Contemporary dentistry for my dental needs. UPDATE: January 2023. Just had the cleaning done, after five years still a satisfied customer.

My family and I have been patients of Dr. Morales and his practice for 18 years. The time period, alone, should be an indication of my family’s satisfaction.  Dr. Morales is wonderful...he invariably demonstrates serving his patients’ best interests and well-being in recommending and carrying out treatment. We have never had lingering issues in any treatment given.  We have successfully recommended him and his practice and will continue to do so. We never have a problem with scheduling appointments and the office staff is always welcoming and pleasant. The office, itself, is modern and comfortable.  If I could give 10 Stars, I would! P.S. Love our hygienist, Amy.

I’ve had a very positive experience with Contemporary Dentistry of Fairfax starting with my initial phone call to make my appointment, to the welcoming and professional office staff, and the talent and skill of the dentists. I currently see Dr Noumy but I trust that I would get the same care from the other dentists as well.

I travel from Florida for Dentist Diego Morales.  He is super careful and I don’t have any pain.  Excellent work in my mouth.  Dentist Diego Morales treats you like part of his family.  No waiting times when you have an appointment.  The receptionist and the staff very attentive.  I recommended 100%.

I have been a patient of Contemporary Dentistry (Dr. Morales) for many years and my experience with his practice has been very positive (especially considering I do not enjoy dental work). He has always made me aware of options for treatment. Over the years, he has always reassured me during instances where I may need a filling, root canal, crown and most recently a dental implant. The staff at Contemporary Dentistry, including hygienist Amy and office personnel are very professional and considerate. Dr. Abril did the implant procedure and his expertise and followup care was especially appreciated. My experience with this practice is such that I have not explored other options for my dental care and consistently see them for my regular checkups. If there are any concerns between regular visits, all I have to do is phone the office and an appointment is available very quickly. I am very happy with the service I have receive from Contemporary Dentistry of Manassas and recommend them without reservation.

Seek Help for Sleep Apnea

If your breathing was interrupted hundreds of times every day from your own airway being obstructed, you'd find help right away. But when the same thing happens during your sleep, it can be all too easy to put off because you won't recall it when you wake up. If you believe you might be experiencing sleep apnea, we urge you to set up an appointment at Contemporary Dentistry in Fairfax, VA or Manassas, VA at your earliest convenience.
