Dental Sleep Medicine

Adult Treatment

Do you suffer from daytime drowsiness?

Do you or your sleep partner snore?

Are you currently wearing a C-PAP?

If you've answered yes to any of these questions, we may be able to help!

Improve your overall wellness, get better sleep, and boost your energy with our dental sleep medicine treatment. If you’re suffering from sleep apnea, you could be suffering from more than just lack of proper sleep. You may be at higher risk for heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute says that more than 12 million people in the U.S. have sleep apnea, and the likelihood of developing it increases with age. Our dental sleep medicine treatment repositions your jaw and keeps the tongue from blocking your airway.

You may benefit from dental sleep medicine treatment if you experience:

• Restless sleep
• Dark circles under eyes
• Mouth breathing
• Sleep issues
• Daytime drowsiness
• Snoring
• Chronic allergies
• Nightmares

No surgery. No drugs. No CPAP. And no need to wear a "snore guard".

Benefits include:

  • No more snoring

  • Reduced risk for heart disease, stroke and diabetes

  • Improved daytime alertness, concentration and emotional stability

  • Less invasive than a CPAP, because you won’t need the mask, tubing, or electric or battery power

  • No dry mouth or sore throat

  • Easy transportation and traveling

Treatment for Children

Treating kids early is a great way for parents to grow a happy, healthy child: one who don’t need to experience the wide-ranging effects of poor breathing, poor sleep, and a face that never grows to reach the full beauty ad functionality that nature intended.

Does your child suffer from daytime drowsiness or bed-wetting?

Has your child been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD?

We provide children with chair rides and a fun experience at the dentist while screening for growth and development issues that lead to sleep disorders. This can begin as early as screening for tongue-ties in infants, during the first years of development. It can also include educating parents on how modern diet and lifestyle can affect face/jaw/airway development.

Our Certified Sleep Consultant dentist in Lexington, MA has over 80 hours of training in the field of sleep medicine. Your child may be experiencing challenges that go beyond sleep, and that you’re potentially unaware of. There are so many advancements in the area of sleep health, integrative medicine, and total health, and our dentist in Lexington is always studying to stay at the forefront of these knowledge bases.  

Kids can have interceptive treatment up to age 11 that will guide growth and correct issues before or as they are happening.

Your child may benefit from dental sleep medicine treatment if they experience:

• Crowded and/or crooked teeth
• Swollen Tonsils
• Swollen adenoids
• Mouth breathing
• Difficulty in school
• Daytime drowsiness
• Enuresis (Bed Wetting)
• Defiance and/or aggression
• Nightmares

A little-known fact is that ADD/ADHD kids can be almost indistinguishable from sleep-deprived kids in the way that they behave. Physicians may treat through prescriptions and medications, where as we can permanently correct the issues (without surgery and without requiring a lifetime commitment to an oral appliance) and troubling behaviors may just even go away; even bed-wetting because until recent studies, no one would have guessed that this was connected to face/jaw/airway development or sleep issues.
