Livonia dentist, Dr. James Stewart, recently attended a course in Advanced Sleep Medicine Training with his dental team. This course, held in Columbus, Ohio provides comprehensive training in serving patients with sleep apnea. In addition to providing excellent general and cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Stewart and our team are proud to serve and treat patients with sleep apnea.
Lisa, Claudia, Windy, and Dr. Stewart attended this course in April so that we can better serve our patients with advanced training. After completing the course, Windy, our dental assistant, is now our Sleep Patient Coordinator. Our team is committed to giving our patient’s the treatment they need and deserve for sleep apnea while also improving our patients’ quality of life.
Treating Sleep Apnea in Livonia and Farmington Hills
Working closely with a team of trusted physicians and sleep laboratories, Dr. Stewart offers comfortable and effective solutions for patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea and chronic snoring. Depending on your particular needs, Dr. Stewart may prescribe a comfortable oral appliance that will properly position your lower jaw while you sleep. Oral appliances help keep air passageways open while you rest. Some patients may need a CPAP mask that releases a stream of air into the mouth which prevents soft oral tissues from collapsing and blocking airways. In some cases, Dr. Stewart may recommend a combination of both types of sleep apnea treatments.
Untreated sleep apnea may place patients at a heightened risk for depression, heart disease, high blood pressure, and memory loss. Because of the potential health risks related with sleep apnea, our team strongly encourages patients with symptoms of sleep apnea to seek treatment.
