What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder in which breathing is stopped and restarted continuously throughout the night. In some cases, sleep apnea can be very dangerous. This is because breathing can stop for longer periods of time without the patient noticing. In addition to being dangerous, sleep apnea can cause disrupted periods of sleep and cause patients to be fatigued throughout the day.   Even more concerning are the medical consequences of untreated sleep apnea which include increased risk of stroke, hypertension, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.  While there are many different factors that cause sleep apnea including obstruction of the airways, Dr. Jammal at our dental clinic in Amherst is proud to offer his patients a wide range of treatments that allow them consistently to get a better night of sleep.

How Do I Know If I Have Sleep Apnea?

Many of our patients are unsure how to tell if they have sleep apnea. The most common symptoms of sleep apnea include:

  • Loud snoring throughout the night
  • Gasping for breath during sleep
  • Waking up with dry mouth
  • Consistent headaches in the mornings
  • Excessive fatigue throughout the day
  • Insomnia

What Treatments are Available for Sleep Apnea

Dr. Jammal is board-certified by the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine. He expertly walks patients through the treatment process, from identifying risk factors for sleep apnea and scheduling sleep testing, to fabricating an oral appliance for sleep apnea treatment for our Amherst patients. This process ultimately treats the condition and replaces the need to use a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine.

I highly recommend Dr. Jammal. His approach is friendly and compassionate while having extensive knowledge in all aspects of dentistry. He takes the time to really understand the issue, find the right treatment plan and ensures the patient is comfortable. I was very impressed on how well versed and experienced he is with all of the new treatments and technologies of available. I’ve recommended Dr. Jammal to my parents and they too have never been so pleased with a dentist as they have been with Dr. Jammal.

What an amazing team-this office is the whole dang package and more! I’ve never been treated as one of the family by an office until this one. The hygienist is able to accommodate my remarkable sensitivity and still do a fantastic thorough job. The doctors assistant is so funny and put meat such ease during a usually high-anxiety procedure. Dr. Jammal really took the time to get to know me, again, treating me like more than just a patient—when I’m there, I’m a member of the office family. I could not be more lucky than I have been to find Dr. Jammal and the whole staff. If you’re looking for a dentist that can handle your dental anxiety, look no further—this is absolutely the place for you.

Great place with wonderful staff! Everyone is great there! Love my hygienist I have been going to her for years! Also, the dentist is professional and makes you feel comfortable. I decided to do a filling naturally without novocaine and it went great! Highly recommend!
