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 Proud to Smile Dentistry in Bernardsville, New Jersey provide the latest treatments in sleep apnea dentistry to help you get the rest you deserve.

After a thorough, painfree cleaning by the dental hygienist (Karima), Dr. Patti repaired a molar for me. The injection and filling were painless and she explained everything throughout the process. The entire staff is professional and friendly. Best ever dental experience for someone with dental anxiety.The office very recently underwent renovation and it’s gorgeous.
