Sleeping is tied to dentistry more than you’d think. When you combine the skills of a sleep specialist, doctor, and dentist, solutions come forth for problems such as sleep apnea, snoring, teeth grinding, and more. Let the Advanced Sleep Apnea and Snoring Center of CT, a division of Elite Smiles of CT help you bring you back to dreamland!

American academy of dental sleep medicine, A Member of the aadsm

Dental Sleep Medicine is an emerging field of dentistry where practitioners treat sleep disorders such as snoring and sleep apnea. Dentists who have completed the credentialing process are awarded diplomat status by the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM) and often are affiliated with sleep centers. With their continuing education in oral appliances and sleep medicine, these dentists have become part of a multidisciplinary approach to patient care. The sleep center team includes physicians, dentists, psychologists and sleep technicians.

 

Sleep Apnea Treatment

Elite Smiles will work with your general health provider to determine the best treatment for your sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a disorder in which tissues in the back of your throat obstruct your airways while sleeping, causing oxygen restriction throughout your body and blood. This can lead to loud snoring and loss of sleep.

 

Night Guards for Teeth Grinding

Teeth grinding in your sleep is a dental issue with a quick, easy fix and it’s important to take action ASAP. Ignoring this problem can cause wear on your tooth enamel, exposing the soft, yellow dentin layer (which can wear even faster). Contact Elite Smiles Dental today to make an appointment for night guards!

 

What To Expect From The Dental Sleep Experience
