How Can a Dentist Help Me?

Dr. Mariya Dayanayeva at The Dental Suite in Rockville Centre is specially trained from the McGann Postgraduate School of Dentistry. She has the education and experience to help you get out of pain and start sleeping right.

She works with your family doctor, pulmonologist, or ENT. Together they’re able to diagnose your sleep apnea, and then Dr. Dayanayeva can create a custom oral appliance, which is also a good alternative for CPAP-intolerant patients. She’ll evaluate your individual needs and case factors before finding the perfect device that will fit you right.

These little lifesavers are designed to move your jaw forward to help keep tissues from blocking your airway, one of the primary causes of sleep apnea. It requires no machine, can be worn while walking around, and is easily packable. If your apnea is caused by improper jaw alignment, we can help you with that too!

Sleep Apnea is Nothing to Snore at

The most dangerous side effect of sleep apnea is your snoring and the fact it causes you to stop breathing all night long, for up to two minutes — and not even know it! When this happens, your body is deprived of oxygen, and your blood oxygen levels will drop too. Blood pressure goes up, placing added stress on your heart. Another reason why sleep apnea leaves you feeling so worn down all the time is that your body is unable to enter REM sleep correctly. Both your brain and body rely on this sleep stage to repair and regrow tissue.

Is it more than just snoring?

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SLEEP APNEA

Sleep apnea is usually accompanied by snoring causing a lapse in breathing. Sometimes this makes you gasp for air (with or without waking up) before returning to normal breathing. Some patients experience this up to one hundred times every night leading to extreme daytime fatigue and more.

THREE POSSIBLE TYPES OF SLEEP APNEA:

  • Mild Sleep Apnea – 5-14 breathing interruptions
  • Moderate Sleep Apnea – 15-30 breathing interruptions
  • Severe Sleep Apnea – 30 or more breathing interruptions

Sleep apnea is most commonly treated by having patients use a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) devices that can provide relief and better sleep using a steady stream of pressurized air delivered through a mask.
