Sleep Apnea


Do you snore a lot at night? While it might not be a definite sign of sleep apnea, there’s always the possibility. Sleep apnea is a condition that can ruin your sleep cycle, making you feel like you never seem to get a full night’s rest. When you come to Black Bear Dental, we can change that. We want you to feel refreshed when you wake up in the morning.

What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that can become dangerous if left untreated. Health complications that can arise include stroke, high blood pressure, and heart attacks. Throughout the night, you will repeatedly stop and start breathing, which is why you may feel so tired all the time. This disorder is more common in men, and additional risk factors include age and obesity.

Sleep apnea can be treated by using an oral appliance that keeps an otherwise blocked airway open.

What are Common Sleep Apnea Symptoms?

  • Excessive snoring
  • Gasping during the night
  • Dry mouth
  • Being sleepy during the day
  • Moments of not breathing while sleeping
  • Morning headaches

Sleep Laser Therapy

If snoring is causing problems at night with your partner or roommate, you might want to try laser therapy. This treatment can reduce snoring by limiting the vibrations that can occur as you sleep. We will use the laser to tighten the collagen in the soft palate, giving you a much quieter night.

The process takes only minutes, and you’ll be able to experience the benefits for about a year before coming back for another treatment.
