-- To further help his clients live a healthy life, Dr. Stephen Conrad has completed advanced training. As a Phoenix dentist, Dr. Conrad is committed to providing his patients with superior dental health care, which even includes the treatment of sleep apnea and snoring. Recently, the Appliance Therapy Group has certified Dr. Conrad in sleep apnea oral appliance therapy.
"Through recent research and education in dentistry, patients now have the option to treat sleep apnea, snoring, and related medical conditions without having to utilize the C-PAP breathing mask and apparatus," said Dr. Stephen Conrad, a dentist in Phoenix. "If a patient or their loved one snores, we offer a complimentary consultation and evaluation to help patients consider oral appliance therapy as an improvement in their quality of life."
Sleep apnea is a potentially life-threatening sleep disorder characterized by repeated pauses in breathing during sleep. Breathing pauses can last anywhere from several seconds to minutes, and can happen as often as 30 times or more per hour. Ongoing disrupted breathing causes an imbalance between the carbon dioxide and oxygen levels in the bloodstream, as not enough carbon dioxide is exiting and not enough oxygen is entering the body.
To treat sleep apnea, Dr. Stephen Conrad, a cosmetic dentist in Phoenix, now utilizes advanced oral appliance therapy. An oral appliance is a small acrylic device that fits over the upper and lower teeth or tongue, similar to a mouth guard. This device slightly advances the lower jaw or tongue, which moves the base of the tongue forward opening the airway. This helps to improve breathing and reduces snoring and sleep apnea. The oral appliance is individually crafted and customized for each patient by Dr. Stephen Conrad in Phoenix, AZ. These appliances are comfortable and well tolerated by many patients and are easy to remove, clean and convenient for travel.
Patients should contact Dr. Stephen Conrad, a dentist in Phoenix, AZ, if they are suffering from snoring or sleep apnea. With proper diagnosis, Dr. Conrad can help prescribe appropriate treatment to help patients sleep better at night.
