Dr. Kevin Berry in his lab
In Denver there is no shortage of dentists that offer general dental practices including routine cleanings, braces, and check-ups. Some even offer more complex services such as cosmetic and sedation dentistry. However, dentists are well aware that no two patients are the same, no matter how similar their symptoms or needs are. When it comes to complex dental conditions such as sleep apnea, it is important that you are able to consult and depend on a dentist that has specific training and experience in treating patients with this complex and life-threatening condition. Sleep apnea is definitely nothing to take lightly and with a sleep dentist in Denver you will be able to get the treatment you need, generally through the use of sleep apnea appliances. To learn more about sleep apnea treatment call (303) 691-0267 or email us today.
What Can A Sleep Dentist in Denver Do For You?
By working with a sleep dentist in Denver such as Dr. Berry, you will be given top of the line treatment and care to help you stop snoring and, if you are diagnosed with sleep apnea, effectively treat that condition as well.
The first step when it comes to sleep apnea is diagnosis. Just because you suffer from specific symptoms doesn’t exactly mean that you do or don’t have the condition. With the trained diagnosis from a board-certified sleep physician, Dr. Berry will be able to use his experience combined with that of the physician in order to determine a proper course of treatment for your condition.
Treatment That Only A Sleep Dentist Can Provide
With the proper diagnosis in hand Dr. Berry will work with you to choose a sleep apnea device that will allow you to sleep at night without the harmful effects of obstructive sleep apnea. It may be beneficial to know the differences between sleep apnea appliances so that you have a rough idea of what your options are, but Dr. Berry will guide you to the appliances that he feels have the best likelihood to resolve your symptoms and keep you comfortable at night.
Professionally-made oral sleep apnea appliances are usually custom-fitted to the specific shape and size of your mouth. Sometimes they may need to be adjusted which is why it is even more important to work with a knowledgeable sleep dentist in Denver.
Caring and Professional Follow-up Care
Even when you have the sleep apnea appliance that seems to be working perfectly for you, Dr. Berry will still advise that you have regular check-ups and at least one follow-up sleep study to ensure that your sleep apnea symptoms are kept at bay. If at any time your symptoms return or you feel like your sleep apnea device needs to be adjusted and/or reconsidered, don’t hesitate to contact our office to have an appointment scheduled immediately! We want all of our patients to have success, especially those for whom we are treating such a serious condition such as sleep apnea.
