Breathe Easy, Sleep Well

Our MD & Washington DC airway dentistry is dedicated to diagnosing and treating breathing-related disorders originating from oral and dental issues. By focusing on the structure of the mouth and throat, this specialty aims to enhance airway openness during sleep and daily activities. This approach is particularly beneficial for patients suffering from sleep apnea, snoring, and other respiratory conditions.

Benefits of Airway Dentistry

  • Improved sleep quality: Effective treatment for sleep apnea and snoring can lead to better sleep patterns and higher daytime energy levels.
  • Enhanced breathing: Optimizing the airway passage promotes better oxygen flow, crucial for overall health.
  • Non-invasive solutions: Many treatments, like custom-fitted oral appliances, are non-invasive yet highly effective.

Our approach to airway dentistry

Our team at Tidewater Dental begins with a detailed examination to identify any airway obstructions or related dental issues. Based on the findings, we may recommend one or more of the following treatments:

  • Custom oral appliances: Devices designed to open your airway during sleep.
  • Orthodontic interventions: Adjustments to better align the teeth and jaw.

If our evaluation suggests a need for more specialized care, we provide referrals to airway treatment specialists. These professionals can offer:

  • Advanced diagnostic tests: Including sleep studies to monitor and evaluate your breathing, brain activity, and body movements during sleep.
  • Customized treatment plans: Depending on the severity of your condition, treatments may include CPAP therapy, oral appliance therapy, or surgical options.
  • Ongoing support and monitoring: Ensuring that your treatment is effective and adjusted as needed for the best outcomes.
