Sleep Apnea Treatment
Monahan Dentistry and Implant Center understands how important it is to have a good night's sleep. Unfortunately, for many people, snoring and sleep apnea can interfere with their ability to rest soundly. That's why we offer specialized treatment for sleep apnea and CPAP alternatives in Mesa, Arizona.
Sleep apnea is a common condition in which a person's breathing repeatedly stops and starts during sleep. This can lead to a host of health problems, including daytime fatigue, high blood pressure, and even an increased risk of heart attack or stroke. At Monahan Dentistry and Implant Center, we take a comprehensive approach to treating sleep apnea, addressing both the symptoms and underlying causes of the condition.
One of the most effective treatments for sleep apnea is a custom-fitted oral appliance. As a great alternative to uncomfortable CPAP, this device is worn while sleeping and works by repositioning the jaw and tongue to keep the airway open. Shawn Monahan, DDS and our team of highly trained dental professionals can create a personalized appliance that is tailored to your unique needs and fits comfortably in your mouth.
In addition to oral appliances, we may also recommend lifestyle changes to help manage sleep apnea. This may include weight loss, exercise, and avoiding alcohol and sedatives before bed. We can also provide guidance on proper sleep hygiene, such as maintaining a consistent sleep schedule and creating a relaxing bedtime routine.
Monahan Dentistry and Implant Center is committed to providing the highest quality care for our patients. Our team of dental professionals has years of experience in treating sleep apnea and snoring, and we use the latest technology and techniques to ensure the best possible outcomes for our patients.
