Sleep dentistry is focused on treating the sleeping and breathing disorders, such as snoring and sleep apnea, with the use of oral appliances or procedures. Sleep disorders can have a severe impact on your physical wellness, as well as the quality of life you have. At Island Dental Group, we care for our patients in a way that is considerate of their entire bodily health, and we will ensure that your treatment is the most beneficial and suitable to your needs.
Sleep physicians can diagnose sleep disorders, run sleep tests, and prescribe some treatments. In addition, dentists cam supply oral appliances that help treat sleep disorders and can improve a patient’s quality of rest. Dentists and sleep physicians often work together to ensure that an individual is receiving the most suitable and effective treatment possible. At Island Dental Group, Dr. Claude N.

The treatments above are closely related because snoring is often a warning sign or symptom of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Many oral appliances that treat these conditions are comfortable, quiet, portable, and easy to wear, but there are many other treatment options available if you prefer an alternate procedure. We invite you to call our dentist and team at (808) 484-4470 if you have questions, and to schedule your visit to our office. We look forward to seeing you soon!
