Predict and Prevent Sleep Apnea with Early Intervention

What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea occurs when your breathing stops periodically during the night due to a blockage in your airway. This can happen as often as 20-30 times an hour for 10 seconds or more! 

An estimated 20 million people in the US are affected by sleep apnea — an estimated 1 of 4 people — but many don’t even realize it. That’s because the symptoms can be rather discreet:

  • Waking up with a headache
  • Feeling drowsy and sluggish throughout the day
  • Sudden waking during the night
  • Snoring or snorting or puffing sounds

These symptoms don’t tell the whole story — airway issues like sleep apnea are linked to heart attacks, strokes, anxiety, depression, mood disorders, and brain injury.

Ensure a Safe Night’s Sleep

At New York General Dentistry, we take a preventive approach. Our goal is to help you identify a potential airway issue and get on top of it as soon as possible.

There are early indicators that a dentist can identify, such as UARS (Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome) and RERA (Respiratory Effort Related Arousal) which, if treated early, can prevent the progression into sleep apnea.

If you’re currently dealing with airway issues, we offer a comprehensive and integrative airway prosthodontic approach. This philosophy focuses on prevention, treatment, and resolution of airway issues through nasal breathing.

Dr. Chern also provides the highest quality dental appliance therapy products, such as a mandibular advancement appliance (similar to a mouth guard).

Schedule an appointment to learn more and find out how Dr. Chern can help you breathe easier, preventing and stopping sleep apnea for good.

“Dr. Chern is an outstanding dentist. I went to her a few months ago terrified of dental work and embarrassed by my oral health. After a few appointments where she walked me through each procedure I am on my way to great oral health, and I’m no longer nervous walking in the door. Thank you, Dr. Chern!”
