What Is Sleep Apnea Treatment?
Sleep apnea is recognized as recurrent pauses in breathing during sleep. This is caused by the muscles relaxing and gravity pulling your airway closed. The momentary suffocation that happens produces excessive stress on the body, which can cause cardiovascular conditions, such as memory loss, mood shifts, weight gain, fatigue, and hypertension. There are many sleep apnea alternatives to try, varying from airway surgeries like an adenoidectomy, maxillofacial surgery, tonsillectomy, or a CPAP machine. If none of these solutions have appealed to you, our team of dentists at Dlight Dental offers customized night guards as a form of sleep apnea treatment for children and adults.

What Can I Expect from Sleep Apnea Treatment?
Sleep apnea treatment at Dlight Dental utilizes what's known as oral appliance therapy (OAT), which may be an extremely effective solution for sleep apnea. It is a custom-made device that fits in your mouth at night. It is often compared to a mouth guard for sporting events. The major difference is that instead of protecting your teeth from injury, it gently pulls the jaw into a forward position to keep your airway open. There are many different versions on the market so our team will work together with you to ensure to get the right one for you. This may be determined after we conduct an examination of your tongue, airway, teeth, and jaw. You will also have oral x-rays taken so that we are able to create detailed impressions of your teeth for your oral appliance.
Dlight Dental Reviews
This practice is extremely good. The periodontist was very informative about the work she was doing, and the upcoming dental work that needs to be completed. The front desk staff, as well as the individual handling the finances, are courteous, knowledgeable and informative. I am appreciative that I found this practice.
Incredibly effective and organized staff all around. Always prompt and I never have to wait more than a few minutes to go back. Dr. Valle-Cintron is great, takes his time to answer any questions you have, and very skilled. He is attentive throughout my procedures, ensuring my comfort and minimizing any discomfort or anxiety I had
Dr Jean Li very professional and her staff 100 recommended.
Dlight Dental and Doctors are excellent in their knowledge and dental service.
By far the best dental experience I have ever had. I had a lot of work done here - extraction, implant, cleaning, fillings etc. and for someone who is usually afraid of the dentist they made me comfortable throughout the year. I recommended this place to a close friend and he had the same experience. I had to move out of state otherwise this would be my dental office for life. I’m very lucky to have come across the people at this office. If I could give this place 100 stars I would.

If your breathing was interrupted numerous times during the day from your airway being obstructed, you would likely ask for help right away. However, if the exact same thing occurs during your sleep, it can be all too easy to ignore as you may not remember it when you wake up. If you think you might be suffering from sleep apnea or if you have a child who is, we urge you to set up an appointment with our team at Dlight Dental in Rockville, MD or Washington, D.C. at your first convenience.
