Sleep Apnea Treatment

Snoring and obstructive sleep apnea can lead to serious medical problems.

If you think you may have sleep apnea, please take complete our online questionnaire. If you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea and cannot tolerate the CPAP, our office can help.

Improperly treated obstructive sleep apnea can increase the risk for heart attack, stroke, diabetes and other serious illnesses. Choosing a sleep-disorders dentist who is qualified to work with your physician is essential to your health or the health of a loved one.

Obstructive sleep apnea is a serious medical problem that has been associated with cardiac problems, high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes, ED, gastro-esophageal reflux disease, and numerous other medical problems. Neither snoring nor sleep apnea should be taken lightly, as your health is at stake. Recent research is beginning to explore the complex interrelationships between sleep apnea and these other medical problems. Management by a dentist should always involve interaction with your family physician, cardiologist, pulmonologist and/or endocrinologist.

The dentist you choose to treat your problem with sleep disordered breathing must be properly educated and with adequate experience. Legally, any dentist can treat snoring and/or sleep apnea with an oral appliance, however, that does not mean that every dentist has the necessary experience and training to provide proper therapy. Because no special qualifications are required it is your responsibility to choose your dentist wisely. A qualified sleep-disorders dentist should have:

  • Appropriate knowledge of sleep medicine
  • Adequate training in oral appliance therapy
  • Experience with many different appliance types
  • Solid relationships with local sleep labs and sleep physicians
  • Current knowledge of emerging trends
  • Ability to derive maximum insurance benefits for you
  • A team approach with other professionals
  • A proven follow-up system to ensure healthy results long-term
  • In-depth knowledge of oral appliance research

"I am looking forward to my next dental appointment!!!My fears are completely gone. For many years I have avoided going to the dentist because of painful past experiences. I was so ashamed of the way my smile looked that I stayed away from cameras and would not speak in public. I have a completely new attitude thanks to Dr. Kelly and his amazing staff.
The moment I walked into the door for the first time I was greeted with caring people who put me at ease. Dr. Kelly listened to my fears on every level. He understood all of my concerns, including the financial end and has worked with me to provide a long term plan that will provide me the ability to have a wonderful smile,better health and confidence, and peace of mind.
I highly recommend anyone who has ever felt their case was hopeless to make an appointment now. Dr. Kelly and everyone on his staff are wonderful and friendly and now I can SMILE! "
