At Vickie Greenberg Orthodontics, we treat our patients holistically. For over 20 years, we have incorporated sleep apnea treatment into our care for orthodontic patients, and have seen results that impact their overall quality of life. Our goal is about more than just getting your teeth straight, we care about the whole face and the whole body!
Sleep apnea treatment helps patients breathe better, which means better quality sleep as well. This reduces the risk of heart disease as well as ADD in children. Getting a good night’s sleep means being able to pay better attention during the day, and an overall improvement in health. Our team is ready to help increase your longevity, health, and beauty!
We are able to treat sleep apnea for anyone, even if you aren’t an orthodontic patient. Our team takes classes in order to stay current with the latest technologies from The American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine. We feel that patients need an alternative treatment other than the CPAP, (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure machine, usually prescribed by MDs) since most patients don’t comply with the technique and when it isn’t being worn the sleep apnea will return.
The oral appliances we offer create long-term stability for the patient. CPAPs only provide oxygen, and don’t address the root of the problem itself. We aim to reshape the palate and create a more functional airway passage, so that the patient no longer stops breathing and awakes during the night.
If you or someone you love suffers from sleep apnea, don’t hesitate to give us a call! We can discuss treatment options with you whether or not you have orthodontic needs to address as well.
Sweet dreams, from all of us at Vickie Greenberg Orthodontics!
