Know the Dangers of Sleep Apnea
Sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder characterized by the cessation of a patient’s breathing several times a night. This interrupts sleep and introduces other health risks. A good night’s sleep is necessary for you to maintain a strong immune system and have the energy to carry out the demands of the day. Without sleep, you can quickly become rundown and tired, even risking your overall health. Sleep apnea has been linked to:
Care from a Highly Trained and Experienced Dentist
Our dentist, Dr. Kavish Gurjar, has a personal passion to sleep apnea treatment in Rockville, MD, and has dedicated a portion of his practice to treat patients suffering from this condition. He has received extensive training outside of dental school in minimally invasive treatment options and focuses a large portion of his continuing education on dental sleep medicine. Dr. Gurjar is also a member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, allowing patients of State of the Art Dental Group to access alternative care methods to traditional CPAP equipment. Additionally, he teaches sleep apnea management techniques to dental professionals across the country. Though trained in surgical techniques for sleep apnea, he provides numerous non-surgical alternatives to both surgery and CPAP machines. He provides oral appliance therapy for mild-to-moderate cases of sleep apnea, a device that when used routinely he believes can extend a patient’s life by 10-15 years! With this appliance, Dr. Gurjar has helped patients achieve great success and a better quality of life.
Targeted, Custom Sleep Apnea Treatment
Approximately 65% of patients who need CPAP equipment won’t wear one. Now you have a more convenient option! By first taking digital x-rays and completing an examination, Dr. Gurjar can determine if your airway is obstructed and then manage your sleep disorder using a custom oral appliance. Oral appliances are non-invasive, helping make sleep more comfortable and preventing the need for bulky CPAP equipment. Benefits can include more restful sleep, increased energy, lowered blood pressure, and more! Because an oral sleep appliance is non-invasive, it makes it more comfortable to share your bed with a sleep partner. No bulky or noisy CPAP equipment is involved. You and your entire family will be thrilled! The small appliance is easy to wear and store in your nightstand when not in use.
