Sleep Apnea Q & A

What is sleep apnea?

Sleep apnea is a condition where complications in your airways and sinus passages cause sleep disruption. Chronic sleep apnea can cause side effects that will impact your overall health. As a result, serious conditions can develop, and it’s often overlooked that the root cause might be sleep apnea.

If you find yourself waking up frequently at night, having trouble breathing, or you wake up feeling tired, you may be suffering from sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is fairly common and can cause you to become less efficient at work, school, and other activities. Common symptoms of sleep apnea include:

  • Snoring
  • Trouble breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Chronic sleep deprivation
  • Memory loss
  • Confusion
  • Acid reflux
  • Weakened immune system
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart problems

What are the effects of sleep apnea?

Sleep apnea puts your health at risk in many different ways, including:

  • High blood pressure
  • Chronic headaches and fatigue
  • Increased risk of stroke or heart attack
  • Weakened immune system
  • Increased risk of diseases such as heart disease and diabetes
  • Brain function suffers from insufficient oxygen
  • Increased risk of mood disorders such as depression
  • Low blood oxygen levels

How can sleep apnea be treated by a dentist?

Though not commonly known, dentists who specialize in sleep apnea can help treat some of the underlying causes of the condition. Many dentists only focus on dental health — caring for and repairing teeth and supporting structures. Dr. Swaintek-Lamb focuses not only on caring for your teeth, but she is also airway-centric, meaning she focuses on early identification, intervention, and prevention of airway issues. This methodology treats the primary cause of sleep apnea that’s disrupting the airways that pass oxygen to the brain.

In addition to specializing in sleep apnea dentistry, Dr. Swaintek-Lamb is also an LVI-trained dentist, providing comprehensive care of your teeth as well as the muscles and joints of your head and neck. This helps to improve symptoms of sleep apnea and other oral health conditions that could be impacting your quality of sleep.

With a combination of education and experience, Dr. Swaintek-Lamb provides treatment that addresses issues affecting your sleep. She uses her expertise from LVI and other continuing education courses for orthodontic, TMJ, and sleep apnea therapies to ensure that you achieve dental and whole-body health.

Call or book online to see Dr. Patti Swaintek-Lamb if you suspect you might be suffering from sleep apnea. Early detection and prevention is key. Let the specialized team at Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville in Bernardsville, New Jersey provide the latest treatments in sleep apnea dentistry to help you get the rest you deserve.

I cannot speak highly enough of my experience at Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville and Patti Swaintek-Lamb, DMD along with her tremendous staff. I have been to dozens of dentists over the years and hands down this has been my best experience and I loved my last dentist before I moved away. They are a wonderful combination of professional and caring. Great kindness and respect is shown to their patients. It is very welcoming environment. For those who dread the dental visit I recommend this office that works to create a calming and supportive atmosphere. The dental work/care was excellent from beginning to end and I look forward to my next visit.

My two sons, 8 and 10, are both receiving orthodontic treatment from Dr. Patti and I’ve been so happy with their progress. She is very thoughtful and thorough with her plans to give them both a healthier smile.

Dr. Patti and her incredible staff perfectly mix professionalism and brilliance with an ability to make patients feel right at home. I have been a patient for almost 10 years and I couldn't imagine going anywhere else. From teeth cleanings to more invasive procedures, Dr. Patti's team is unmatched. Lately I have been treating for my sleep apnea. I can say without exaggeration that the device Dr. Patti prescribed and developed for me changed my life. I went from fitful nights of frequently-interrupted sleep all while snoring like a jackal, to sleeping through the night without making a sound. My wife may be happier at this development than I am. In short, whatever your dental/sleep needs, look no further than Aesthetic Dentistry.
