Expert Sleep Apnea Dentist in Cary
Sleep apnea is a dangerous disorder that leads to breathing problems, oral problems and a variety of other issues, yet many people don’t even realize they suffer from it and go undiagnosed and untreated. Sleep apnea symptoms include being tired no matter how long you sleep, waking up frequently in the middle of the night, waking up with a dry mouth and irritability, among others. A sleep apnea dentist, such as the ones at Implant & General Dentistry in Cary, can provide sleep apnea treatment options. For people who have a mild case, a sleep apnea mouthpiece is typically enough to curb the problem. However, more serious sufferers may need more aggressive sleep apnea devices for treatment. We are knowledgeable in a wide range of sleep apnea remedies and can help you find the best treatment to suit your situation.
Effective Snoring & TMJ Treatment
Even if you don’t need treatment, you might have trouble sleeping due to snoring or other types of sleep-disordered breathing (SDB). If your snoring – or your spouse’s snoring – is keeping you up at night, talk to us about snore guards or one of our other available solutions.

Sometimes people don’t receive treatment for sleep apnea in time and end up suffering from other problems, such as temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). Also known as TMJ, this problem affects the jaw and the facial muscles and nerves. Symptoms include ear pain, headaches, morning or late-afternoon jaw pain, clicking noises in the jaw and sensitive teeth. Our TMJ dentist can help you treat this disorder by providing mouth guards to keep you from clenching your jaw at night.
