Our team at Oakwood Dental is deeply concerned for the health and well-being of our patients, our staff and their families. As of March 16th, The American Dental Association and the Colorado Dental Association have recommended that dental offices nationwide temporarily close.  

As you may know, we were already closed for most of this week for Spring Break. We have decided to extend our closure for an additional week in order to do our part to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, and will be canceling any routine or elective procedure appointments already scheduled through March 27th. We will instead concentrate on emergency dental care in order to care for our patients and alleviate the burden that dental emergencies would place on hospital emergency departments.

My spouse snores and it keeps me awake. Can you help?

Man snoring and woman covering ears | Castle Rock CO DentistSnoring is disruptive and can prevent both partners from getting a good night’s sleep. Not only does the sound of your partner’s snoring disrupt your sleep, it can also indicate that they could be suffering from obstructive sleep apnea.

Sleep apnea occurs when your airway becomes blocked and interrupts the restorative sleep your body needs to stay healthy. Not every person who snores suffers from sleep apnea, but loud and consistent snoring can be a sign. A sleep study can diagnose sleep apnea, and your doctor should be able to direct you to an accredited sleep clinic.

Oral Appliance Therapy in 80104

For both sleep apnea sufferers and other patients who snore, oral appliance therapy provides a solution either on its own or, in some cases, in combination with CPAP (continuous positive air pressure) therapy. Oral appliances designed specifically for patients who snore or have sleep apnea assist with keeping the airway open by gently repositioning the jaw, tongue, or both to allow air to flow freely past the anatomy at the back of your throat.

By addressing the problem, you can avoid health complications such as mood disorders, fatigue, and even heart attacks – in addition to allowing both you and your partner to get a better night’s sleep.
