Lakewood Ranch Dental Sleep Medicine

Dental sleep medicine is a branch of dentistry that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of sleep-related breathing disorders, particularly sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a common and serious sleep disorder where breathing repeatedly stops and starts during sleep. It can lead to various health issues, including cardiovascular problems, daytime fatigue, and impaired cognitive function.

  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), the most prevalent form of sleep apnea
  • Central Sleep Apnea (CSA), less common and occurs when the brain fails to send the appropriate signals to the muscles to initiate breathing
  • Complex Sleep Apnea Syndrome (CSAS), also known as treatment-emergent or mixed sleep apnea, CSAS occurs when an individual initially diagnosed with OSA develops central sleep apnea when using continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy for OSA

Since 2016, Dr. O'Brien has treated dozens of patients with Dental Sleep Medicine symptoms, implementing protocols to more actively identify and treat patients.
