Sleep Apnea

Snoring isn't Funny

Loud, repetitive snoring may be a sign of a more serious problem – Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). For patients suffering with OSA, the airway becomes completely blocked and breathing stops. The brain then detects the lack of oxygen and prompts the body to momentarily "wake up" to draw breath.

In addition to frequent and loud snoring, common symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea are:

  • Irritability or changes in behavior
  • Restless sleep
  • Morning headaches
  • Night sweats
  • Difficulty concentrating, and
  • Heartburn

Treatment for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)

An initial diagnosis for OSA is made by physicians that specialize in sleep medicine. Our doctors at Marietta Smiles may recommend a screening test as part of the dental assessment.

  • Oral Appliances are devices similar to sport mouth-guards; worn during sleep to reposition the lower jaw and tongue and permit the airway to remain open. This can be an effective alternative for people that are intolerant of breathing machines like CPAP.

Are you ready for a good night's sleep?

I have not been to a dentist in over 13+ years. They made me feel at home & really helped me stay clam during my process. I was in need of a "deep clean" and I can tell you it was just performed yesterday and today I feel NOTHING.. Not sore or bleeding gums. AMAZING!!!!!!!!!

I have been visiting the staff at Marietta Smiles for nearly 2 years and I have experience great service from them all. They are always so friendly and accommodating to my needs. I didn't feel ashamed about my initial visit with them (it had been nearly 10 years since my last dentist appt and my teeth were in bad shape) and they completely made me feel relaxed. They completely transformed my smile and improved the health of my teeth and gums. I experience little to pain when getting exams and cleaning. They have definitely taken the fear out of going to an appt, if anything I look forward to going! Thank you again to Dr. Nunez and the lovely staff at Marietta Smiles.

The front desk people can make or break your experience with a dentist. The front desk people here are awesome. They take care of everything and don't mind if you change an appt.

AMAZING The experience started when I called to see if they could help me with an "emergency". Liz was empathetic and listened to me about what was going on. She was able to fit me in to be seen. Once I got there, I was greeted by Shannon who made sure I did not have any questions prior to being seen (definitely a better experience when the patient doesn't feel like they are bothering the front desk ...) What a great start to an unfortunate reason for being seen. I did not even have to wait ... I arrived early to fill out the paperwork and I was barely done and they called my name. Laura and Dr Singh were a pleasure. They took their time to explain everything to me, often repeating the same information to make sure I understood my options. They never once "forced a recommendation" for what to do. They let me make the choice (BIG Fan of this). At every step of the process, of the root canal (normally an awful thing to face), they made sure I was informed and comfortable. Often asking if I had any pain as they were doing the work. As much as this may sound crazy, I actually enjoyed myself. All of the staff was accommodating, funny, professional and truly cared about the patient and what they do. I have so many positive things to say about this practice. I will recommend Dr Singh and his staff to anyone who will listen.
