When you wake up in the morning fatigued and wondering why you do not have a refreshed and rejuvenated feeling, it could indicate a serious sleep disorder. Sleep apnea is a very common sleep disorder affecting millions of Americans. Many people are unaware that they have this condition unless a bed partner complains about snoring or interruptions in breathing.

Sleeping relaxes your muscles, and for some, this relaxation causes those muscles in the back of the throat to collapse. This will obstruct or partially close off the airway. In the case of complete obstruction, the patient will stop breathing for a few seconds. When the brain signals a lack of oxygen, you wake up and begin breathing and the cycle starts again. This can happen a few times a night or hundreds of times.

Partial blockage of the airway leads to snoring. When you turn to sleep on your side, the snoring usually stops. Snoring makes it difficult for your partner to get rest, and occasionally you may snore loud enough to interrupt your sleep as well.

Sleep apnea problems are treatable once properly diagnosed. A plan is put in place to provide the most effective treatment for the condition. A sleep study may be required to determine the extent of the condition. Remedies can include special dental devices or a continuous positive airway pressured machine (CPAP) that constantly blows air into the airway to prevent it from collapsing while you are sleeping.

Relief from Snoring and Teeth Grinding

In addition to sleep apnea and snoring, teeth grinding, or bruxism, is another sleep condition that can have ramifications for you and your partner. While your partner may cringe at the noise of your teeth grinding together, like fingernails on a chalkboard, your teeth are undergoing tremendous, unnecessary pressure. This can lead to jaw pain, headaches and cracked or damaged teeth.

These sleep conditions can be addressed with a variety of methods. A custom nightguard fitted to your teeth positions your jaw to keep the airway open, which can eliminate snoring. Nightguards are also constructed to prevent bruxism. These devices provide a cushion between the upper and lower teeth.

Adequate, quality sleep is an important part of being healthy. If snoring, sleep apnea or bruxism is affecting your sleep or that of a loved one, give us a call at Engineered Smiles. Dr. Wang has the expertise to help you solve the problem and restore your ability to sleep well. Contact us today to schedule your appointment.

    Absolutely love this place, I’ve been coming here for the last two years. I didn’t have insurance when I first started, and they had a great payment plan that they were able to let me work with. I see Jennifer, and she is the absolute best! Dr. Wang and his entire staff have always been extremely friendly and helpful. I will continue coming back to this location for years to come come!

    Like most people I don't particularly enjoy going to the dentist. The staff, hygienists, and Dr. Wang himself make this practice the best one I have ever gone to. I have been I patient for over a year now. I recently made the decision to get a filling from another dentist redone. That filling had me terrified because my last dentist didn't properly prep me. I told Dr. Wang and he listened very attentively and took the necessary steps to make sure I was properly numbed and fixed my filling and I didn't feel a thing! The shop itself is very clean and organized. It's and old Bank building and they cleverly used the value for the X-ray room. A big shout out to Jennifer for being great and very gentle with my cleanings. Also, the office manager Autumn, for always working with insurance for me and getting the financials as low as possible without me having to ask. I have recommended several people to this practice and all have had great experiences and continue to go back. This practice is absolutely worth checking out!

    Dr. Wang and his amazing technology create incredible results. I have had an implant and a crown and they are perfect replicas of my original teeth, only healthy. Also, the work was efficient and practically pain free!! He and his support staff are all kind and gentle. This practice is highly recommended both by me and by my husband!

    Dr Wang went above and beyond to make sure I thoroughly understood his proposed treatment plan for a front tooth implant. He spent almost an hour on the phone with me addressing all my questions and concerns and outlining his reasons for choosing a particular method or timeline. He was patient and specific. The following day he spent even more of his time demonstrating some of the incredible technology he would be using to ensure success of the procedure. He is incredibly smart and his engineering knowledge seems to be coming in handy!! Wonderful dentist with a broad range of talent!

    I’ve continued to use Dr. Wang as my dentist for several years and have always been more than happy with him. His staff is excellent and Jennifer, my dental hygienist, was friendly and did a great job. Dr Wang is always thorough and takes the time to answer all the questions I have - I trust him and continue to refer friends, family and coworkers to him and they have always been happy to say the least!

    Margo W.

    I could not get my regular dentist and Dr Wang popped up on Google as if by magic! I have a severe phobia about dentists but the glowing reviews about Dr Wang and his staff gave me courage to make that call after years of putting off the dentist. I was still anxious as I arrived for my appointment (I would not have gone but for the pain I was in) Dr. Wang was so personable cheerful and took his time explaining the procedure. He was very gentle. Even though I can't remember their names I can't say enough about his staff who displayed the same patience and encouragement. No one has paid me to do this review. It's all my true feelings. Dr Wang you have a patient for life in me
