What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?

Obstructive sleep apnea is a condition where the muscles and tissues around your throat continually relax and cause your airway to collapse while you sleep. When that airway is collapsed, the brain stops receiving the oxygen that it needs and unconsciously causes your body to wake up enough to return your mouth to its normal position. Sleep apnea patients can wake up every few minutes during the night without consciously realizing it.

Constant sleep interruptions can have a serious negative impact on your body’s ability to rest and rejuvenate. Patients with sleep apnea feel tired during the day and aren’t able to perform as well in their day to day tasks. Sleep apnea may also cause weight gain, mental confusion, sluggishness, high blood pressure, headaches, sexual frustration, heartburn, and other issues if left untreated.

Over forty percent of snorers suffer from some form of sleep apnea. If you snore and don’t feel like you are getting enough sleep, even when you go to bed for eight hours, this could be a sign that you have sleep apnea. Luckily, at Cary Family Dental, we can help.

Who Has Sleep Apnea?

1 in 5 adults have at least mild obstructive sleep apnea. While some factors are linked to higher rates of sleep apnea, like family history, use of sedatives or alcohol, or being overweight, sleep apnea sufferers come from all walks of life.

Could you be at risk for sleep apnea? Our caring professionals can complete an analysis to help you decide of obstructive sleep apnea is causing your exhaustion.

If you snore frequently, especially with long pauses in breathing or gasps for breath, you may have sleep apnea. Other common symptoms include fatigue, lack of focus, insomnia, mood swings, and weight gain.

Sleep disorders are threatening to your health, but they are treatable. We recommend seeking an experienced sleep apnea dentist to diagnose and treat you. Here at Cary Family Dental, we provide treatments that are both conservative and effective.

If you would like to learn more about sleep apnea, we would be happy to assist you. Give us a call at Cary Family Dental to speak with our sleep apnea team today.

Sleep Apnea Treatment

At Cary Family Dental, our team understands that the best way to treat sleep apnea is to focus on the cause. When we isolate your sleeping pattern and why the obstruction keeps happening, we can determine the best way to treat your sleep apnea and alleviate your symptoms. When you come into our office for sleep apnea treatment, we will begin by performing a sleep study. From there, we can create an appliance specifically for you to help you breathe properly and to sleep well again. At our practice, we also offer snore guard options for our patients who snore during the night and want relief.

Our sleep apnea treatment allows patients to:

  • Sleep Through the Night | A good night’s sleep allows your body to recharge itself and prepare for the next day. Sleeping soundly rejuvenates your energy and makes you feel happier, and healthier. A great night of solid rest is one of life’s simple pleasures.
  • Stay Healthier | After a good night’s sleep, you will feel more energized and active. Patients who sleep well feel better about themselves and enjoy positive health benefits. Sleep plays an important and pivotal role in your overall well-being.
  • Help Their Family Sleep Better Too | Sometimes sleep disorders affect more than the person struggling with them. Snoring is often a side effect of sleep apnea, and if you sleep near a loved one, your sleep apnea could keep them from sleeping well. Sleep apnea treatment could help both you and your family enjoy a better night’s rest.

What Our Patients Are Saying!

As a first time patient, I was warmly welcomed and every person I came in contact with was very friendly. I received a thorough cleaning and was very informed of my needs and any procedure that might be performed.

Cindy Covil

I have been a patient of Dr. Acton's for 19 years. You can trust him to listen to you and address your needs and/or fears. He has the most up to date procedures and invest in training all of the staff on both the latest techniques and customer service... I feel safe and well cared for at each of my appointments.

Darlene Germano

Dr. Acton is great at what he does and I highly recommend using Cary Family Dental as your new Dentist! PS - their new building is awesome and they have TVs on the ceiling so you can watch when you are getting cleaned!

First impressions last and Cary Family Dental did provide the best impression for a new patient like myself. I’ve been with my previous dentist for years and sadly decided it was time for a change after having experienced less favorable visits the past year and a half. Everything from the time I pulled up to my parking space to the quick tour of the office to my very detailed (and impressive teeth cleaning!) and conversation with Dr. Davis, the process has been seamless, organized, easy peasy and very professional. I’ve also had experienced great dental hygienists in the past but Kim is hands down the BEST I’ve ever had. Very knowledgeable, personable, gentle and efficient and I don’t think I will ever be the same again when it comes to my teeth cleaning! Lol Thank you Dr. Davis and team for taking such great care of me during my recent visit. Most importantly, thank you for listening to my concerns and providing me with the knowledge I needed to make the right decision for my dental health. Looking forward to returning and getting back on track to a great dental health!

Very pleased with all the treatment so far and scheduling. It's a nice new clinic on Kildaire farm rd. Liz was AWESOME! She's truly a perfectionist. No one in the past has cleaned that well and throughly. She was super patient & cares for her patients. We will continue to use this for our dental needs. THANK YOU!

This place is NOT like other places where they just want rip you off and take your money. In fact if you are looking for a dentist that is clean, organized and have a wonderful/professional staff! Seriously, look no farther!. I was seeking today for a dentist and I found this place with these many 5 stars reviews . I’m usually very skeptical about dental stuff and who touches my teeth. But I can’t describe how glad that I called this place and I scheduled an appointment SAME DAY for consultation. First the building is gorgeous and CLEAN! Staff are very friendly! They have the best customer service and very efficient. You can reach out to them by phone , email and text. Prompt Responses to any questions or concerns. Tiffany met with me first to address my concerns. She asked me all these important questions. She is an amazing and detailed on explaining things and making me feel very comfortable. And then Dr. Madden came to see me to check my teeth. I can’t tell you how much this doctor is WONDERFUL , CARING and PROFESSIONAL. I highly recommend to go see HER! She has knowledge and she recommends things/treatment that will keep your teeth healthy. Don’t waste your time or money looking somewhere else. This is one of the best dental clinic I ever been. Highly recommended!

Cary Family Dental has an excellent staff. They are all kind from start to finish. They make you comfortable when you get into the client rooms so that you can be totally relaxed while getting a cleaning, x-rays, or any other procedure. The dentists are very patient oriented and make you feel welcome. The dental assistants that have helped me are extremely knowledgeable and will answer any and all questions. Today, I had Karen as my dental technician. She is extremely professional, personable and her technique is flawless and painless. Way to go Karen. Keep up the good work! If you have not been to Cary Family Dental before and need your teeth cleaned, ask for Karen. You will be glad you did!

I could not be happier with my choice to establish care with CFD! I am new to the area, so it was overwhelming to place my trust in a new practice to do cleanings, whitening, and more cosmetic things. My hygienist, Carrie, and Dr. Acton were nothing short of amazing. They explained everything thoroughly and made sure all my questions were answered before I left. I am super excited to continue my care through them and to see my end results!

This was the best experience I have ever had at a dentist. The office was clean, inviting, and not intimidating. The dental hygienist was communicative and comforting. I never felt judged for not having been to the dentist in a while and always felt at ease. The dentist was just as thoughtful and comforting. Couldn't recommend this practice enough.

Cary Family Dental is a great place to go to take care of your teeth. I do periodontal cleanings and always come to Karen (my favorite dental hygienist there) each time. She is super friendly, very professional, and provides exceptional service. You are always in good hands with Karen. Overall, the staff here are very gentle and kind. They explain very well the procedures and execute them flawlessly. Thanks again Karen and Cary Family Dental, can't wait to come back!

Everyone at this place is amazing. I've moved around quite a bit and this is the only dentist that I've found that made me feel very comfortable each and every time. They take the time to explain everything and all your options. Unfortunately, I have to leave because I moved further away, but I would absolutely highly highly recommend this Dentist to anyone without hesitancy.
