Are you suffering from poor sleep, low energy levels, and heavy snoring? Did you know your trusted Tucson dental team can help you banish sleep apnea and its side effects? At Creative Smiles Dentistry, our dentists offer Airway Functional Therapy to help our patients improve their sleep quality, and quality of life! 

What is Airway Dentistry?

At Creative Smiles Dentistry, our airway functional therapy treatments are designed to identify signs of sleep-disordered breathing within the mouth and surrounding structures. Our dentists will assess tooth wear, tissue conditioning, tongue positioning, and more to assess and prevent the effects of sleep apnea disorder.

Do I Have Sleep Apnea or Disordered Breathing? 

While the symptoms of sleep apnea can vary by patient, a few common signs and symptoms include:

  • Fatigue or tiredness even after a full night's sleep 
  • Struggling to breathe while sleeping
  • Loss of breath while sleeping 
  • Heavy snoring 
  • Lack of energy
  • Depression and mood swings
  • Dry throat
  • Weight gain

If you experience poor sleep quality or any of the common symptoms of sleep apnea, it's time to schedule a consultation with your dentist at Creative Smiles Dentistry. 

What Should I Expect from Airway Functional Therapy? 

At your airway functional therapy visit, our skilled team will perform a thorough exam to check for signs of sleep-disordered breathing, including assessment of your breathing patterns and the structures of the mouth, to gain a complete picture of your condition. Your dentist will then be able to recommend the best sleep apnea therapy for your needs, which may include a custom-fitted oral appliance to help your airways stay open during sleep. At Creative Smiles Dentistry, we take a customized approach to ensure your sleep apnea treatment best meets your needs and lifestyle!
