What is Airway Dentistry?
Airway dentistry assesses the structure of the mouth to determine how it affects breathing. During your appointment, our airway dentist will assess your mouth for signs of mouth breathing during sleep, including tongue position, tooth wear, and the condition of the tissues within the mouth, to determine the need for treatment or prevention of sleep apnea and other sleep disorders.
At Creative Smiles Dentistry, we recommend a thorough airway dentistry screening for any patients experiencing breathing issues. Dr. Jeannie will work with you to provide the answers you need!
What are the Signs of Sleep Apnea?
Patients who suffer from sleep apnea regularly complain of the following symptoms:
- Heavy Snoring
- Constant Fatigue
- Periodic Loss Of Breath While Sleeping
- Difficulty Breathing While Sleeping
- Dry Throat
- Lack of Energy
- Weight Gain
- Irritability & Mood Swings
If you suspect you may have sleep disorder, it’s important to seek prompt treatment. When left untreated, sleep apnea can contribute to a higher risk of conditions like stroke, heart disease, high blood pressure, depression, and more.

Your customized treatment plan will be based on the findings of your airway dentistry screening. If our dentist determines a need for sleep disorder treatment, we will refer you to a trusted team for ENT or myofunctional therapy.
