Sleep Apnea Treatment Near Richmond, VA

Most sleep problems are caused by poor breathing during the night. These breathing issues often stem from underdeveloped jaws, which cause an underdeveloped airway. Sleep dentistry follows the body’s natural blueprint to treat these symptoms for deep, restorative sleep, just as nature intended. Additionally, we offer PREVENTION, MANAGEMENT, and REHABILITATION options to address these issues comprehensively. Prevention focuses on early identification and intervention to promote proper jaw development. Management includes ongoing treatments to alleviate symptoms and improve breathing. Rehabilitation involves corrective procedures and therapies to restore optimal function and support long-term health.

Mouth Breathing Is An Important Clue

Mouth breathers are more prone to developmental problems like crowded teeth, narrow dental arches, and smaller jaws. These problems lead to symptoms of mild to moderate sleep apnea like snoring, difficulty breathing through the nose, poor sleep, and behavioral issues. Chronic mouth breathers are at a higher risk for prolonged bed wetting, allergies and ADHD-like symptoms.

Children's Sleep & Airway

Children’s sleep-disordered breathing is a physical disorder that disrupts a child’s sleep pattern. Sleep-disordered breathing can cause a reduction in the amount of oxygen that a child's body and brain receive during sleep. They don't get the kind of restorative sleep that a growing child needs and end up being chronically tired. We offer children's sleep problem treatment in Richmond, VA, and all surrounding areas.

What is Sleep & Airway Dentistry?

A common reason for correcting crowded teeth is the desire to improve one's smile. However, if crowded or crooked teeth are due to an underlying condition (such as impaired jaw development), the consequences can be far more serious. They can include lifelong symptoms of chronic fatigue, poor sleep, snoring, hypertension, anxiety, depression, TMJ disorders, jaw pain, and mild to moderate sleep apnea.

Airway-focused orthodontics focus on the root cause of crooked or crowded teeth, instead of just focusing on the symptoms. At Chester Dental Care, we take into account every aspect of you or your child's breathing, sleep patterns, jaw anatomy, and other aspects of physiology. We consult with medical doctors, as well as other healthcare professionals, to make sure that we cover every base of oral and airway health. We then use this information in order to formulate comprehensive treatment objectives with the goal of ensuring long-term holistic health. If you're ready to start your journey to better breathing and better sleep, request an appointment today! We offer treatment for sleep problems and airway issues near Richmond, VA, and throughout the surrounding areas.

Don't Take Our Word For It

Dr. Rodrigues was incredible with her consultation of looking at dentistry from the perspective of the airways. Looking at root causes of issues instead of just cosmetics. I recommend her highly. Everyone in the office was friendly and professional.
