Snoring And Sleep Apnea Treatment

Is snoring or sleep apnea ruining your life or the life of someone you know? Future of Dentistry in Massachusetts can do something about it!

Recent research has led to the development of a simple and safe anti-snoring device that reduces or even eliminates snoring. The device is similar to a mouthpiece that positions the lower jaw forward as you sleep. The tongue, being attached to the lower jaw, is simultaneously pulled forward, which makes it less likely to fall back into the throat, block the airways and cause snoring.

What Is Sleep Apnea?

Many people are unaware that they have sleep apnea and, as a result, the condition goes untreated. That has a detrimental effect on your quality of life. When snoring is so loud that it disturbs the sleep of the snorers and their family members, it may be a sign of a related condition known as obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).

OSA is a breathing disorder that can, in some cases, lead to life-threatening incidents such as heart irregularities and stroke. People with OSA actually stop breathing at night because of airway blockage caused by a relaxed tongue. When breathing stops, carbon dioxide builds up in the bloodstream. This alerts the brain and the eerie silence is followed by a gasping, snorting sound. Each episode lasts long enough so that one or more breaths are missed. The episodes occur repeatedly during sleep.

A typical apnea sufferer will stop breathing 30 times per hour for 30 seconds each time. That’s 15 minutes an hour of not breathing. Can you imagine the consequences of failing to get vital oxygen to your body’s cells? They slowly starve for oxygen, increasing the likelihood of chronic diseases such as high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke.

Sleep apnea is diagnosed with an overnight sleep test called a polysomnogram, or sleep study.

Sleep Apnea Symptoms

Signs and symptoms of sleep apnea

It is important to know some of the major signs and symptoms of sleep apnea.

  • Loud or chronic snoring
  • Choking, snorting or gasping for breath during sleep
  • Long pauses in your breathing
  • Daytime sleepiness, no matter how much time you spend in bed
  • High blood pressure
  • Forgetfulness and not being able to concentrate
  • Moodiness, irritability, depression, changes in temperament

Who is at risk?

Anyone can have sleep apnea, no matter their age or gender. Even children can have sleep apnea, which is commonly caused by enlarged tonsils and adenoids. However, some people are more at risk than others. You may have a higher risk of sleep apnea if you are:

  • Overweight
  • Male
  • Related to someone with sleep apnea
  • Over age 65
  • African American, Hispanic, or Pacific Islander
  • A smoker

Other risk factors include having a thick neck, deviated septum, receding chin, or enlarged tonsils or adenoids. Allergies have been known to contribute to sleep apnea.

If you feel you might have sleep apnea, the first thing to do is undergo a sleep study done and get a diagnosis from a certified sleep doctor.

If you need help in taking the next step toward a restful night’s sleep, call Future of Dentistry. You will be glad you did. We use the latest technology to improve your night’s sleep and your overall wellness.

I love this dentist office. The staff are so friendly and the office and rooms are immaculate. They bend over backwards to help you with your financial situation. If not I wouldn’t be able to get my much needed dental work done. Thank you so much.

My teeth are a battle, have been for a long time. When I walked into the future of dentistry, I thought I may be headed for dentures. one year later I have a positive outlook on my teeth. The visits have been painless, professional and because of some of my teeth are on the edge of being pulled, they did what they could to repair them. one of my caps had a problem and they replaced it free of charge, without question. Besides the fact they do great work, are really nice, make people comfortable, I am impressed that I was actually allowed to leave the office with a small balance due and they did not harass me over it. Other dentists I have dealt with would not let you leave if any balance was due, these folks are reasonable and understand that we are not all rich and dental work is expensive. Having said that the prices are reasonable. Overall you could not find a bad person at this place, everyone is so nice, professional, caring, really they worry about my dog in the car, and when you have a problem they fix it immediately. People make a place great and this place has great people!!

My experience today was great. I contacted the office to inquire about a procedure. They were able to get me in same day for a free consultation, and I was received on time. The dentist was attentive, provided all the necessary information about my options, and provided an estimate of the cost to me based on my insurance. The reception staff were very pleasant. Definitely felt valued as a patient.

Great place. Friendly and happy atmosphere. Very nice and clean office. The tools they use are really modern. Everybody it’s friendly and professional. They explain everything they see during your visit, (it’s nice to know they will apply some cold air or a pinch) so you know what’s going on. Finance help you along with the process for you to understand. Great location. They are experienced and know they are doing. Very competitive prices and work with a lot of insurance companies.You can communicate via phone, email, text. It’s awesome. Glad to find you!

From my he moment I walked in the support staff was friendly and professional, but most importantly they made me feel at ease .Once I meet my Dentist, she made me feel comfortable and relaxed. She spoke to me and listened to my story with compassion and empathy.The exam was a consult but because of my unique situation the Dr . Extended me extra time and completed a task that I thought would take several visits . I was so happy and smiling when I left and truly surprised by the level of service provided .I am sending my family there going forward . I found the future of dentistry .

My first visit. The front desk staff was super friendly and welcoming! I waited only about 5 min and was called back. The DA who did my X-rays was sweet and very good at her job. Dr. Cifuni was very nice. He looked at my tooth issues carefully and took plenty of time to explain everything to me. He is patient, smart and kind, a very, very good doctor. Thank you all very much.

Future of Dentistry is top notch. One of my front teeth got chipped so I called them. They were able to see me in a timely manner, Also my appointment ended up on day there was a snowstorm. Future of Dentistry called prior to my appointment and asked if I would like to come a day earlier to avoid any inconvenience of the storm. Dr. Tony was the doctor that fixed my tooth. He was Fantastic! He assured me as soon as I got in the chair that he would be able to fix my tooth no problem, he had me in and out of there within 40 minutes. The work that the team performed was excellent I can’t even tell my tooth was chipped. Thanks so much!

I had my first visit to Future of Dentistry yesterday. Kathryn was my hygienist. She was amazing! I felt heard and validated with all of my needs, which is extremely important to me. She acknowledged everything I said. The office itself feels luxurious and it very beautiful. I am glad to have newly become a patient at this facility.

I have been a patient for a couple of years. I am so impressed by the eagerness of all to make my experience the best it can be. I have never been one to look forward to the dentist office …However the pain free experience I have received at Future of dentistry is by far the best I have ever had. I had my teeth cleaned by Pia this week, she did such a thorough job, very professional and very knowledgeable and willing to share mouth hygiene tips. When I moved to NH I thought about changing dentist…I just couldn’t !I now travel an hour and a half because I know I can’t replace this quality of dental careThanks…

I’ve gone to Future of Dentistry for as long as I can remember. I have had great experiences every time with different dentists, and that’s saying a lot because I’m one of those people who can’t stand going to the dentist. The dentists there are very kind and try to make the visit go by quickly and easily! Great place, if I’m being completely honest, parking can be tough, but you can usually find a spot. (But if that’s the biggest problem I’d say Future of Dentistry is great!
