SLEEP APNEA TREATMENT

Do you have a habit of snoring or labored breathing during sleep? Come see Dr. Mark Baker at Premier Dental to learn if you would benefit from sleep apnea treatment in St. George, Utah. Our experienced dentist can help you understand your condition and treatment options during a personalized consultation. Call 435-628-0621 today to schedule your appointment.

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder marked by interruptions and pauses in breathing during sleep. Obstructive sleep apnea is caused by obstructions in the airway, such as the tongue rolling back in the throat or collapsed tissues in the airway. Untreated sleep apnea can contribute to several serious health conditions, including heart disease, high blood pressure, and liver problems.

Sleep apnea must be diagnosed by a sleep physician. We recommend that you talk to your dentist, as well as your doctor, if you suffer from the symptoms of sleep apnea. Common signs of sleep apnea include:

  • Extreme drowsiness during the day
  • Personality changes and irritability
  • Difficulty staying asleep
  • Snoring
  • Awakening with a very dry or sore throat
  • Frequent morning headaches

Sleep apnea treatment may depend on the severity of the condition. If you suffer from mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea, our dentist may recommend an oral appliance. The oral appliance works to treat obstructive sleep apnea by fitting over your teeth and keeping your airway open while you sleep. It can work by preventing the tongue from blocking the air passage or by holding your jaw in a position that prevents airway blockages during sleep. For more information on sleep apnea treatment, we welcome you to call or visit our dental practice today. We are committed to helping you improve your health!

COVID-19 Health Notice:

Dear Premier Dental Family,

Many of you have had to wait for routine dental care as the state mandated in March that dental offices close their doors to all but emergencies and urgent care.  We are pleased to announce that per state guidelines, we are now able to fully re-open and treat patients for all types of dental care, including cleaning appointments with your hygienist.  You will notice we have implemented some additional protocols to keep our staff and patients safe at this time including:

1) Asking that you please reschedule your appointment if you or someone with whom you have been in contact has had symptoms of being ill. 
2) Asking that patients come alone to their appointments or if necessary no more than one person with them to minimize crowding in the front lobby.
3) Use hand sanitizer upon arrival
4) Minimize lobby crowding by arriving no earlier than 10 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment
  
In addition, we may ask you to rinse with mouthwash prior to dental procedures.  We will also be using high-flow suction devices for your treatment to the extent practical.  As a dental office, we already abide by strict sanitation standards in our treatment rooms, and will be sanitizing other common areas in the office throughout the day.

We understand you may have other questions at this time regarding your treatment or how Covid-19 is affecting dental care.  As always, we are happy to answer your questions personally via a simple phone call, email or text, and we look forward to the opportunity to serve you again.  We, like you, look forward to the day when this novel Coronavirus is fully under control and we fully reconnect with our friends, families, and neighbors with a renewed sense of gratitude.  
 

Sincerely, 
Mark Baker, DMD
Premier Dental
