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.
Contemporary Dentistry Reviews
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.
We found Dr. Morales after we switched insurance and it has been the best decision we have made. The kids love it and the staff is friendly.
best attention recommended 100%

Family friendly! Great job making my child feel comfortable and answering all questions.
