DENTAL SLEEP MEDICINE
Did you know that a dentist can help you get better sleep?
If you wake up tired on a regular basis, you may suffer from a sleep-related breathing disorder. Dothan Smiles Family & Cosmetic Dentistry is a Dreamsleep Certified Provider, meaning our staff has undergone extensive, hands-on training to screen for and treat sleep-related breathing disorders with an oral appliance, a convenient, non-invasive treatment option for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA).
We can screen you today or during your next regularly scheduled visit. Your screening results will be reviewed by a board-certified physician, and based on their recommendation we may provide you with an in-home sleep test to determine if an oral appliance will alleviate your symptoms*.
If the home sleep test results indicate you will benefit from the oral appliance, we will take an impression, create a mold for and 3D print a custom appliance. You will get your custom made oral appliance in the mail and can schedule an appointment with us to make any adjustments necessary.
Oral appliance is custom made to fit your teeth and jaw
Portable for easy and convenient travel
No dry or itchy respiratory symptoms like those often associated with CPAP
Unlike the CPAP, the oral appliance is silent and will not disrupt your partner's sleep
OAT can be less expensive and more convenient than CPAP or surgery
*Home Sleep Tests in NJ, GA and TX are ordered by a DreamSleep dentist in conjunction with a physician.
