Franklin TN Dentistry Offers Testing and Treatment of Snoring

Why is my dentist asking if I snore?

Aspen Grove Dental now offers a free sleep study to all of our patients to determine the right solution for your snoring problem. You trust us with your smile and we are honored to extend that same trusted care to help you achieve better health through a better nights sleep!

Is snoring a serious problem?

Snoring is often a symptom of a much more serious issue – sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a common disorder causing breathing pauses while you sleep. These breathing pauses may last for 10 seconds or longer and occur 30 times or more in an hour! The breathing irregularity is due to blocked or narrowed airways that may be caused by

  • excess tissue in the throat or nasal passages
  • large tonsils
  • a large tongue
  • the structure of the jaw

What is a sleep study?

Aspen Grove Dental Associates offers a free home sleep study to all of our patients. Home sleep testing is a recognized procedure for the diagnosis of sleep-disordered breathing. Aspen Grove uses industry standard portable monitoring devices to test for chronic snoring and mild to moderate sleep apnea. The monitoring device will be used for two complete nights:

  • One night to establish a baseline assessment of sleep-disordered breathing
  • One night to establish the level of improvement and monitor the effectiveness of your treatment

What is the treatment?

A highly effective treatment option is the use of an oral appliance worn during sleep to support the jaw in a forward position, allowing the upper airway to stay open. Wearing an oral appliance can offer relief and allow you and your partner to rest better.

Aspen Grove Dental Associates uses state of the art OPTIsleep digital technology to design your oral appliance. OPTIsleep is the only oral appliance that is planned and created using a completely digital process.

Using 3d software your doctor can visualize problems with your airway. Through digital planning, OPTIsleep technology provides:

  • A high level of accuracy
  • Protection of mandibular joints
  • A durable, comfortable appliance
  • Control of loud snoring
  • Sealing of your lips so can breathe normally through your nose
  • Freedom to open the mouth to speak or drink while wearing the appliance

What Constitutes a Dental Emergency?

Any dental problem requiring immediate treatment in order to save a tooth, stop ongoing tissue bleeding, or alleviate severe pain can be a dental emergency. Call to speak with one of our Doctors to determine your best course of action.

Some Common Dental Emergencies Include

  • Teeth that are knocked out or knocked loose – See Tips for Preserving a Tooth below
  • A cracked tooth – A cracked or fractured tooth is a serious issue suggesting that damage has occurred to the inside of a tooth as well as to the outside.  Call Aspen Grove Dental right away.
  • Tissue injury and facial pain – Puncture wounds, lacerations, or tears to the lips, cheeks, mouth, and tongue are considered dental emergencies and may also warrant a trip to the emergency room. Call our office immediately to reach the emergency dentist on call.
  • Objects stuck in the mouth – Call our office rather than using any sharp or pointed instruments to attempt to dislodge an object. Our Dentist on call can help determine your best course of action.
  • Toothaches – Pain caused by infection or abscess in the mouth, which can be life-threatening, may need to be treated right away. Call and let our dentists know so they can help you with a treatment plan.

Tips for Preserving a Tooth

If a tooth has been knocked out, the clock is ticking – 30 minutes may make the difference between saving a tooth or not!

  • Do not delay calling our office to speak with a dentist.
  • Keep the tooth moist at all times.
  • If you can, place the tooth back in the socket without touching the root.
  • If that is not possible, place the tooth between your cheek and gums.
  • Placing the tooth in milk or using a tooth preservation kit is also an option.
