Sleep Apnea

Take charge of your sleep and wellness

Are you clocking in several hours of sleep each night but still find yourself persistently tired? You could be suffering from sleep apnea, a disruptive disorder that repeatedly interrupts your breathing throughout the night, disturbing your sleep cycles. This condition leads to inadequate oxygen supply to the brain and ongoing sleep disruptions. Consequently, your productivity takes a hit, and daytime fatigue becomes all too common. Beyond that, sleep apnea has been linked to a range of issues, from headaches and weight gain to behavioral concerns and cardiovascular disease.

Is sleep apnea affecting your well-being?

If you think you might have sleep apnea, schedule a consultation with Rejuvenation Health. Our team takes a biologic approach that can improve not only your quality of sleep but your quality of waking activities as well. We offer effective solutions including customized dental appliances, Continuous Positive Air Pressure (CPAP) machines, as well as surgery.

What are the sympoms of sleep apnea?

While sleep apnea is a condition that manifests at night, the symptoms occur mainly during the day. Many patients who seek our help, find that a list of wellness concerns they have can be directly attributed to their sleep disorder, such as:
  • Chronic snoring
  • Gasping for air during sleep
  • Headaches upon waking
  • Daytime fatigue
  • Poor concentration or memory
  • Irritability

What is obstructive sleep apnea?

There are two types of sleep apnea: central and obstructive. Central sleep apnea (CSA) is caused by a failure of the brain to signal the muscles that control breathing. It is extremely rare. Most patients who have sleep apnea suffer from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). OSA is a result of an airway blockage that typically occurs when the soft tissue at the back of the throat collapses, causing you to stop breathing or gasp for air. Sleep deprivation due to sleep apnea has been linked to numerous risks to your health, including injuries, car accidents, diabetes, stroke, and high blood pressure.
Take charge of your sleep and vitality. Our comprehensive sleep apnea solutions offer not just restful nights, but rejuvenating days ahead.

Anxiety-free dentistry

At Rejuvenation Health, your overall physical and emotional wellbeing are as important to us as your oral health. As a biologically driven multi-specialty dental team, we consider how what we do impacts all of you—not just your mouth. We offer all major sedation methods from local to general anesthesia, our practice is synonymous with sedation dentistry in New York, NY so that you can relax through your appointment without fear or pain.

We use local anesthesia, the foundational level of sedation, to numb treatment sites before a minor procedure. You remain completely alert under its effects.

We’ll prescribe a medication for you to take either before your visit or during it. The level of anxiety you have will determine the kind of medication we provide as well as the level of comfort you experience.

We administer nitrous oxide, sometimes referred to as laughing gas, through a mask. Nitrous oxide keeps you alert but relaxed throughout your treatment, and its effects wear off quickly after the mask is removed.

Administered intravenously, IV sedation puts you in a sleep-like state, though you’re not actually asleep. You won’t feel any sensation during your procedure, nor will you remember anything about it afterward.

The biological dentists at Rejuvenation Dentistry® offer same-day dental crowns and dental bridges for ultimate comfort.
