  • A dental experience like no other! This office is clean, modern, high tech, and has friendly staff and knowledgeable dentists. First off, they conveniently text you (aside from calling and emailing) to remind you of your visit. When you get there, you fill out your paperwork via an ipad - this was new and different for me. The waiting room is cozy with coffee, tea, and water at your leisure. And I barely had to wait. I was seen within two minutes. In the actual dental room, you can watch TV, and not basic cable, I'm talking every channel from ESPN to HGTV. This place has made me change my view about dental offices - I wouldn't mind going back!

What is sleep apnea?

Sleep apnea is defined as the interruption of breathing while you are sleeping. When this occurs, your oxygen levels get too low and your brain tries to wake you so you can breathe again. You may wake up with a gasp or a loud snort, making it impossible to get a full night of sleep.

This can lead to other serious health problems, such as elevated blood pressure, heart disease, sexual dysfunction, strokes and heart attacks.

Symptoms of sleep apnea:

  • Excessive fatigue during the day
  • Insomnia
  • Nightmares
  • Snoring
  • Depression
  • Dry mouth or throat
  • Headache
  • Irritability and mood swings
  • Weight gain
  • Teeth clenching or grinding (bruxism)

How we can help…

Virginia Dental Center is equipped to help treat your sleep apnea. It begins with an initial sleep apnea screening that monitors your sleep cycle. Depending on your screening, we may refer you to a sleep specialist. In some cases, you may need a dental device to help open your airways while you sleep.
