Snoring - Sleep Apnea

Top 10 Tips on How to Stop Snoring and Improve Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Many people snore occasionally. Does your snoring wake you up? Does your snoring or obstructive sleep apnea disrupt a good night’s sleep for someone else in your household? Snoring is one symptom of sleep apnea, which can lead to illness, including headaches, fatigue, and vehicle accidents. Let’s review the top 10 ways to help you stop snoring. 

1) Fotona Nightlase™ Laser Therapy

Fotona Nightlase™ Laser Stop Snoring Therapy is one of the most successful stop snoring treatments. Fotona Nightlase™ therapy is a simple, non-surgical laser procedure that uses a specific wavelength of laser light to induce a tightening effect of the collagen in your tissues in the back of the throat. The laser shrinks and strengthens collagen in the soft tissues in your throat, opening your airway and allowing it to remain open during the day and while you sleep. Fotona Nightlase™ helps reduce snoring and increase the quality of a patient’s sleep.

Many stop snoring aids or sleep interventions like CPAP machines and oral sleep devices only help you when you are using them, whereas Fotona Nightlase™ enables you to breathe better all the time.

2) Stop Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea Appliances

Dental stop snoring appliances are custom made and should be fitted and made by a specially sleep apnea trained dentist. Mail order one-size-fits-all stop snoring mouth guards can be very bulky and negatively affect your bite or cause jaw pain. 

3) Invisalign® Orthodontics

Invisalign treatment can help treat crowding and widen your smile, thereby increasing the space for the tongue. When your tongue can lay flat in your mouth, it will not fall backwards while you sleep, thereby reducing snoring significantly. Orthodontics can change the positions of your teeth, and it can also change the shape of your smile, and mouth thus significantly opening your airway.

4) Using A CPAP Machine

A CPAP Machine is a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure Machine which supplies air through a breathing mask while you sleep at night. While effective, most people find using a CPAP machine is often uncomfortable, and many patients choose not to wear it, opting for other stop snoring aids and other obstructive sleep apnea treatments instead

5) Drop a Few Pounds

One cause of airflow obstruction is an excess of fatty tissues in the throat area. A weight loss plan, ideally coordinated with your doctor, may be able to reduce extra fat throughout your body and throat enough to reduce your snoring.

6) Sleep on Your Side

Some snorers with mild obstructive sleep apnea may only need to roll onto their sides when they begin snoring to get a better night’s rest. 

Sleeping on your back sometimes causes your tongue or soft tissues of your throat to fall back and obstruct your airflow. This can make a vibration between your tongue and throat tissues. Sleeping on your Side has proved an effective way for many to stop snoring. 

7) Change Your Habits

Changing a few habits may help you breathe better at night. These habits include:

Stay hydrated–Drinking enough water during the day
Don’t drink alcohol before bedtime.
Avoid taking sedatives if you can.
Stop smoking.

8) Treat Chronic Allergies

If you have allergies, consider using a quality decongestant. Most allergy meds can help decrease mucus in the sinuses, making breathing easier.

9) Consider Surgical Options

Obstructive sleep apnea and stop snoring surgery treatments may be necessary for patients with severe snoring issues to achieve the desired results. A surgeon can sculpt the structure of your sinuses and nasal passages to allow for improved airflow.

10) Get Nasal Strips or a Nasal Dilator

Certain kinds of snoring respond well to a nasal strip, which is placed on the bridge of the nose, which keeps the nasal passages open, increasing airflow through the nose while you sleep. A nasal dilator does a similar job but works on the nostrils directly. 

However, if you have central sleep apnea or obstructive sleep apnea symptoms, the nasal airway may not be involved in the cause of your snoring

Help for Partners and Family Members– Secondhand sleep apnea happens when your partner is woken up consistently during the night because of the loud noises you make while snoring. Though your partner does not have sleep apnea, they are being deprived of a good quality of sleep because of the constant interruption to their sleep.

If your spouse, partner, or family member snores, you may have trouble getting restful sleep yourself. You can try a pink or white noise machine or earplugs to see if you can sleep better. If the noise machine does not help, your partner may need to visit a sleep apnea dentist to find the source of the snoring.

Dr. Madhuri at Discovery Dental clinic can guide you through the steps for getting a sleep apnea diagnosis and provide you with the best medical advice to reduce or eliminate your snoring and sleep apnea.

Stop Snoring & Sleep Apnea – Overview

Do you have sleep apnea? If you do, you might stop breathing involuntarily many times per night. With obstructive sleep apnea, patients stop breathing for periods of about 10–30 seconds each time before their bodies force a breath—often with the sound of snoring or gasping for air while sleeping. 

Sleep apnea causes repeated oxygen deprivation during the night. Snoring and sleep apnea can interrupt your sleep several times at night, depriving your body of vital oxygen that your body needs to heal itself while you are resting. And if you have it, you probably won’t remember those held breaths in the morning—you’ll just be left with fatigue and other signs and symptoms of sleep apnea. What you may need is BETTER sleep quality, not more sleep.

Sleep apnea is often caused by airway blockage in the throat or the nose. Rarely, it is caused by a nerve or muscle problem that interrupts natural breathing, which is called central sleep apnea. 

Remember is that your sleep apnea dentist at Discovery Dental clinic has extensive training and effective sleep apnea solutions. You may be able to get relief very quickly, so call your family dentist today for a FREE stop snoring and sleep apnea consultation.

What Causes Snoring?

Approximately two-thirds of Americans snore during sleep. Snoring happens when air cannot freely flow in and out as you breathe while you sleep. When your airway is restricted or partially blocked, breathing causes the upper airway tissues to vibrate, which is the sound you hear when someone snores. The vibration creates a sound that ranges from relatively soft to very loud.

Snoring can not only keep your partner up at night; loud snoring can also restrict the airflow into your lungs. Snoring at night can also make you or your bed partner irritable and exhausted during the day-second hand sleep apnea (like secondhand smoking). Many people who snore also suffer from sleep apnea which is a serious medical condition.

Should I Be Worried About Snoring and Sleep Apnea?

 

Sleep apnea is a cause for concern because it severely limits oxygen flow while you are asleep. If you’re worried, our dentist can provide an examination to see how we can help you breathe and sleep better.

The most common type of sleep apnea is called OSA obstructive sleep apnea. During obstructive sleep apnea, the back of the throat is blocked by the muscle or tissue in the back of your throat, closing off your airway, causing you to stop breathing while asleep. Your body immediately wakes up so you can start breathing again.

Health Concerns Related To Snoring and Sleep Apnea

Some people might not think about sleep apnea as a serious medical problem. Obstructive Sleep Apnea or OSA and other forms of sleep apnea can be seriously detrimental to your general health. The disruption caused to achieving a restful night sleep by snoring and sleep apnea can lead to conditions such as:

• Heart Attack. 

• Stroke. 

• Weight Gain. 

• High Blood Pressure. 

• Alzheimer’s. 

• Headaches and Migraines. 

• Impotence or Loss of Libido. 

• Depression. 

• Anxiety. 

• Difficulty Controlling Diabetes. 

• Irritability and Aggressive Behavior. 

• ADHD. 

• Acid reflux. 

• Loss of Focus and Memory. 

• Abnormal Facial Growth in Children. 

• Tooth Grinding at Night or Bruxism. 

• Unusual Daytime Fatigue. 

Some scientific studies have shown that sleep apnea can shorten your life by as much as 12 years. Don’t let sleep apnea go untreated! Visit our Top 10 Tips on the How to Stop Snoring page to find out more.

Why Visit A Dentist For Sleep Apnea Treatment?

Dr. Vanama, your local dentist in Issaquah, WA, knows a lot about the structure of the mouth and sinuses and how that affects your breathing at night. Our snoring and sleep apnea team can help you find a sleep apnea treatment that works best for you.

Some of our effective treatment options include:

1. Nasal Breathing Exercises and Decongestants. Breathing through your nose increases your oxygen intake by 10–20%. Nasal breathing helps warm the air before the air reaches your lungs. Nasal breathing also adds resistance to the air stream and keeps the air in the lungs longer, increasing the amount of oxygen that enters your bloodstream.

2. Invisalign. Aligning your teeth can change the position of your teeth and increase the space available for your tongue in your mouth. Thereby preventing it from falling back and obstructing your airway; this helps keep the airway open and takes away the pressure of your teeth against your tongue.

3. Fotona Nightlase™: This type of non-surgical laser procedure uses a specific wavelength of light that helps shrink the tissues around your throat, so your tongue and other tissues don’t obstruct your airway.

4. Oral Obstructive Sleep Apnea Device. A custom dental appliance looks similar to a mouthguard and is carefully designed to position your jaw in a forward position that helps open your throat and airway.

Fotona NightLase Stop Snoring And Airway Improvement

Are you or your loved ones struggling because of your snoring, or are you looking for an alternative for your CPAP machine? Dr. Vanama can help you with options to reduce or stop your snoring or obstructive sleep apnea OSA and enables you to get a better night’s sleep.

One way Dr. Vanama can help you stop snoring is through our Fotona NightLase Laser Snoring treatment. Nightlase is a patient-friendly treatment and does not involve wearing any devices, using a CPAP machine, or chemical treatment. 

Non-Surgical Treatment Help Stop Snoring And Sleep Apnea

Are you or your loved ones struggling because of your snoring, or are you looking for an alternative for your CPAP machine? Dr. Vanama can help you with options to reduce or stop your snoring or obstructive sleep apnea OSA and enables you to get a better night’s sleep.

One way Dr. Vanama can help you stop snoring is through our Fotona NightLase Laser Snoring treatment. Nightlase is a patient-friendly treatment and does not involve wearing any devices, using a CPAP machine, or chemical treatment. 

What Is NightLase™? How Can It Help My Snoring or Apnea?

NightLase™ Snoring Therapy is a non-surgical, pain-free procedure that uses a sophisticated twin light laser light from ND-Yag and Er-Yag to tighten the collagen in oral mucosa, soft palate, uvula. The tissues and muscles become firmer, thereby opening the airway and preventing the collapse of the airway during your sleep.

NightLase™ doesn’t just help to reduce snoring. The process can also be a highly effective treatment for sleep apnea by allowing you to breathe fully while you sleep. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), often is caused by a large tongue or large tissues blocking the back of your throat, can easily be treated with NightLase™ in most cases.

How Does NightLase™ Work?

1)Before starting a NightLase™ treatment, we recommend an at-home sleep study to help determine if you have sleep apnea and determine the level or degree of severity of sleep apnea.

2) We can provide you with an at-home sleep study system to check your snoring and sleep apnea. Then we send the results electronically to a sleep medicine specialist MD for a complete scientific evaluation. If it turns out you have snoring or sleep apnea, you can achieve relief with Nightlase treatment.

3) Each NightLase™ treatment session takes about 30 minutes and typically consists of 3–4 treatments. The sessions are spaced about 21 days apart, so you should be done in approximately 6-9 weeks.

Touch-up sessions sometimes are needed every year or two since NightLase™ isn’t a life-long permanent procedure.

What Is A NightLase™ Treatment Like?

A NightLase™ treatment typically consists of 3–4 short 30 minute sessions with our Fotona Lightwalker laser. The sessions are spaced about 21 days apart for the best results. During the procedure, you won’t feel any pain, but you may feel a warming sensation.

NightLase™ For A Good Night's Sleep

Sleep apnea is considered a severe condition that can deprive you of the oxygen that your body needs. Snoring also causes plaque build-up in your arteries, thus increasing your risk of heart attack and stroke. With NightLase™ Laser Therapy, we reopen your airway so you can breathe better and have a better quality of sleep.

Sleep Apnea And Stop Snoring Devices

Sleep apnea deprives the body of oxygen for 10–30 seconds, many times during every sleep cycle, putting the brain, heart, and other systems at risk. That’s why you must get a sleep apnea test as soon as possible if you have any warning signs of sleep apnea. 

Once you get a diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea, several sleep apnea treatments can help, including a CPAP breathing machine. Many people find CPAP machines are inconvenient and uncomfortable to wear during sleep. About 50% of people who purchase a CPAP don’t use it for longer than a year or consistently every night.

What Is Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)?

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the typical type of sleep apnea and occurs when the airway is blocked. During sleep, the throat tissues relax too much and collapse, thereby closing off the airway.

Symptoms of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) includes:

  • Loud Snoring.
  • Exhaustion or Fatigue During the Day.
  • Waking up Suddenly With a Choking Feeling.
  • Dry Mouth.
  • Sore Throat.
  • Hadaches in the morning.
  • Memory Loss.
  • Difficulty Keeping Focus.

If you think you may have sleep apnea, visit our Stop Snoring and Sleep Apnea page to learn all about your options to solve it.

How Does A Sleep Apnea Device Help Me To Stop Snoring And Treat Sleep Apnea?

Dr. Vanama can help you get set up with a home sleep study and consultation with a sleep MD physician to confirm that you have sleep apnea and your sleep apnea severity. When you book a sleep apnea consultation, we start with an exam and digital images of your teeth. We evaluate the best treatment options and then make a recommendation that is customized for each patient.

A sleep appliance that looks similar to a mouthguard is also known as a mandibular advancement appliance or an orthodontic retainer. Our dental sleep appliances are custom-made to fit your mouth.

The MA device is designed to shift your lower jaw forward until the back of your throat is open, thus allowing more air as you sleep. A custom sleep appliance primarily prevents your jaw from falling back into your airway rather than they are about pulling your jaw forward.

Some of the many benefits and advantages of a sleep appliance include:

  • Significantly Decreases Snoring.
  • Improve Sleep Quality.
  • Comfortable to Wear all Night.
  • Custom Designed and Fitted just for You.
  • It’s a Practical Treatment for Snoring and Sleep Apnea.

If you want a great night’s sleep again without the problems of a noisy, expensive, bulky machine, try a sleep appliance instead—great for anyone who travels.

Get The Restful Nights You Deserve With A Sleep Appliance Mouthguard

Don’t suffer through snoring and sleep apnea or put your loved ones at risk for secondhand sleep apnea. Secondhand sleep apnea occurs when your partner is woken up consistently during sleep due to the loud noises you make while snoring.

Invisalign Issaquah, WA - Smiling woman putting on her Invisalign aligners

TMJ/TMD Treatment

Invisalign in Issaquah will transform your smile.

You might hear terms at a dentist’s office like “TMD” and “TMJ.” The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the joint that attaches your lower jaw to your upper jaw. It is a complex area of specialized tissues close to each ear. 

An accident, stress can damage the TMJ or other factors we’ve seen at our dental practice. When a significant issue develops, it is called TMD, or temporomandibular disorder. 

What Causes TMD?

Invisalign in Issaquah Will Give You An Amazing New Confident Smile!

The TMJ is very complex, and the causes of TMD are sometimes challenging to find. But we can often see in the dentist’s office that the TMJ has been damaged somehow, and the muscles and other tissues around need relief. The original cause of the TMD might include:

· An accident or other source of trauma.

· A degenerative joint disease, like arthritis.

· stress, anxiety, or depression.

· Teeth grinding, either while awake or asleep.

As humans, we can hardly function without our smiles, teeth, and jaw joints, which are needed in social interactions, eating, and much more. Pain coming from the jaw joints is very important to manage in order to increase your quality of life and productivity—in partnership with your TMJ dentist.

What Are The Signs And Symptoms Of TMJ And TMD?

TMD and TMJ issues may present with one or more of the following symptoms:

  • TMJ Pain.
  • TMJ Headaches.
  • Tenderness or pain around the joint.
  • Clicking of the TMJ joint when Opening and Closing Your Mouth.
  • Can not Open Your Mouth as wide as You Could Before.
  • Lock Jaw- When your Joint is Locked in Place, You Can’t Open or Close Your Mouth.
  • Pain that radiates From Your Joint.
  • Chronic Migraines or headaches
  • Muscles around Your Jaw Joints Are sore and tight
  • Changes in bite: Your Bite or the Way Your Upper and Lower Teeth Fit Together can change
  • Constant Pain Around the Neck or Head.

TMD and TMJ disorders can occur in one or both joints

Treatments For TMD/TMJ Disorders

Treatment recommendations for TMJ or TMD can include one or more of the following

  1. Physical Therapy. This can include TMJ exercises, hot/cold therapy, or laser therapy to decrease pain. Changes in your diet, avoid chewing gum, and reducing stress can also help.
  2. Botox. Injecting Botox in the muscles around the TMJ can help relieve pain and stiffness in the jaw.
  3. Custom Splints and Bite Guards. We can design a custom splint to relieve the pressure off your joints, which can help muscles and join to heal
  4. Oral Surgery. In extreme cases, oral surgery can repair the damage and can help reduce TMJ symptoms.
  5. We evaluate your symptoms and consider your general health before recommending any treatment. Sometimes pain can be relieved by using anti-inflammatory medication or muscle relaxants combined with a dental splint.

Call Dental Specialist Dr. Vanama for Compassionate TMJ Care

Do you suffer from aches and pains in your face, head, jaw, neck, or shoulders?

In some cases, your pain may be relieved—and jaw joints healed—through a small dental appliance. Call Discovery Dental, our dentist office in Issaquah, now for an affordable dentistry consultation, along with dental cleaning and other services.

TMJ Splint

Do you suffer from aches and pains in your head, jaw, or teeth and don’t know why? Sometimes these pains can be caused by strain in the temporomandibular joints (TMJ), which are the jaw joints that connect your lower and upper jaw.

Why is your TMJ strained? It may be because your teeth are grinding together while you sleep or while you are concentrating on other activities. This grinding, known as bruxism, can also cause loose teeth, tooth damage, and gum recession, as well as jaw joint pain.

If you are experiencing these problems, contact your local dentist office, Discovery Dental, in the Issaquah area. TMJ dentist Dr. Vanama would like to find the cause of your pains and help relieve it as soon as possible through dental services, avoiding permanent damage to your teeth.

What Causes Teeth Grinding? 

If your teeth are grinding together, it can be caused by:

  • An airway obstruction that causes your breath to stop during the night (obstructive sleep apnea) which requires a sleep apnea test to diagnose.
  • A misaligned bite, causing your teeth to come together in a way that wears them down.
  • Anxiety is brought on by a major life event or chronic stress.

Teeth grinding can eventually wear down the surface material of your teeth, crack a tooth, or damage facial muscles and jaw joints. That last problem can lead to muscle tension that causes pain, such as headaches, which your holistic dentist can help treat.

Types of Dental splints

1.    “Over-the-Counter” Guard. These can be usually purchased over the counter. They are readily available and seem convenient but are generally bulky and hard to wear and as they are not custom-fitted for each patient. 

2.    Soft Splints: These splints feel comfortable, but they wear out faster

3.    Custom Flat Plane Splint / TMJ Night Guard. A TMJ nightguard is designed for teeth grinders and clenchers.

To fabricate a splint, we scan the patient’s teeth with our 3D digital scanner to help us fabricate a custom appliance for each patient

A splint is worn over your teeth and help provide relief by

  • Prevent the teeth from touching each other,
  •  Absorb the force of any unconscious nighttime biting or grinding, stopping the tooth material from being damaged.
  • Improve the motion of your bite, making your teeth meet in a new way.
  • Move your jaw into a new position to support your muscles and joints, thereby helping them heal

4.     Mandibular advancement device for sleep apnea and snoring. A mandibular advancement device can be used for patients who suffer from sleep apnea. This device helps hold the lower jaw in a forward position, thereby helping to keep the airway open during sleep. When a patient has sleep apnea, the lower jaw, and tongue slide back due to gravity, which can obstruct the airway in some patients. Bodies defense mechanism, which senses the drop in oxygen, wakes you up to move your jaw forward. This is your body responding to stress and violently moving your lower jaw to a better position to remove the obstruction to your airway. When this happens multiple times at night, it constantly affects the joints and causes a lot of damage to your teeth.

Benefits Of TMJ Treatments

TMD and TMJ disorders may be mild or severe, depending on your situation. TMJ treatments can improve your well-being by:

  • Relieving Your Headaches.
  • Stopping TMJ Pain.
  • Eliminating Teeth Grinding.
  • Preventing Damage to Your Teeth.
  • Improving Your Breathing.

The sooner you receive TMJ therapy and treatment, the better. Constant pain and problems can complicate your health. We can show you the best treatment for your TMJ disorder and help you feel great!

If you suffer from unexplained tooth pain, headaches, tooth damage, and other issues, you need a consultation at family dental practice Discovery Dental as soon as possible.

Sleep apnea can be a serious condition and can cause oxygen deprivation to your brain all night long, putting you at significant risk of strokes, weight gain, migraine headaches, and Alzheimer’s. You need to be at your best, which is why we offer a completely FREE Snoring and Sleep Apnea Consultation, and we can diagnose and provide amazing cutting-edge solutions.

How Do We Determine If You Have Sleep Apnea?

We may give you a home sleep test computer for you to take home for a few nights, or in rare cases, we can refer you to a local sleep lab to administer a sleep test to determine if you have sleep apnea.

A sleep test is done with an electronic device that you wear overnight for two nights to test your oxygen levels and brain waves while you sleep. If you have periods where your oxygen drops, sleep apnea could be the cause your symptoms.

Once you are diagnosed with sleep apnea by a board-certified sleep physician, we have many options we can use to treat your snoring and sleep apnea.

Personalized Sleep Apnea Treatment For Your Best Possible Results

If you are diagnosed with sleep apnea, we can offer three main types of treatment which can help you achieve quality sleep at night.

1) Night-time Mandibular Advancement Device: 

This appliance is custom made and is designed to hold your lower jaw and tongue in a forward position keeping your airway open to enable you to breathe well and sleep better at night. Get your energy back with a new oral appliance for sleep apnea!

2) Invisalign treatment: 

In patients with a narrow upper and lower jaw, Invisalign helps expand the dental arches, creating more room for your tongue, which allows you to breathe more properly throughout the night. As your airway opens, you can breathe naturally and sleep better.

The additional benefit of using Invisalign to treat your sleep apnea is that you will have a beautiful smile.

3) Our most popular and most requested solution is The Fontona NightLase system.

NightLase is a non-surgical, pain free laser treatment that tightens the collagen at the back of your throat, opening your airway to increase the volume of oxygen you breathe 24 hours a day. NightLase treatment is a series of 3-4 short 30 minute sessions of laser treatment done at a 21-day interval. 

This option also helps to quiet snoring and can help improve athletic performance.

CPAP Machines and oral devices help treat sleep apnea symptoms, but they only help the patient if they are actually being used. Nightlase, on the other hand, helps patients all the time and cannot be forgotten—it is also far more convenient than a CPAP.

Call our office to learn more about these treatments for a night with quality sleep.

If you are concerned about cost, we can discuss that during the consultation. We accept most dental insurances and accept most forms of payment. We offer payment plans such as six months and one year, the same as cash, and long-term payments for the lowest possible monthly payment costs available for most patients.
