Our number one local Bay Ridge dentist, Dr. Henry Young, is here to help you with any dental issue you may be experiencing. You may be surprised to know that this also applies to problems with your sinuses, like sleep apnea and snoring. Obstructive sleep apnea is a condition in which you stop breathing for short periods of time while your sleep due to blocked airway passages. You may not even realize that it is occurring because you are asleep at the time. Almost everyone has brief episodes of sleep apnea while they sleep, but if it is frequent it can become an issue. Some symptoms that can indicate that you may have obstructive sleep apnea include: not feeling rested when you wake up in the morning, forgetfulness, fatigue throughout the day, irritability, headaches that are hard to treat, worsening depression, and hyperactive behavior. You may need to undergo a sleep study or test in order to conform that you have obstructive sleep apnea.
Bay Ridge Oral Appliances
If you are diagnosed with the condition, our local Bay Ridge dentist is here to help you with treatment. We recommend special oral appliances for our sleep apnea patients for you to wear while you sleep in order to keep your tongue and the soft tissues in the back of your throat from obstructing your airflow. They are small, non-invasive, and so comfortable that you will forget you are wearing it as you sleep soundly through the night. A similar problem that Dr. Young treats in patients is snoring at night. We can treat your snoring problem using a variety of methods, and which we choose depends on how severe your problem is. Sometimes lifestyle changes are all that are required in order to stop you from snoring, but in other cases the use of an oral device or even surgery may be necessary.

Bay Ridge Mini Dental Implants
Mini dental implants are about half the size in diameter of a regular dental implant. Our Bay Ridge implant dentist recommends mini dental implants to be used in situations where regular implants cannot, such as if an implant needs to be placed in a narrow space. Mini implants are the preferred method because of their smaller size. The small size of mini implants often means that no incision needs to be made to place the implant. They can usually be inserted right through the gum into the bone. This eliminates the need for a recovery period, and the restoration can usually be placed right away or only a short time after. Discuss mini implants with your next visit to our Bay Ridge implant dentist.
