Put an End to Your Snoring! Sleep Apnea Treatment in Chapel Hill

Sleep Apnea Treatment Chapel Hill

Sleep Apnea Treatment in Chapel Hill

How are you sleeping? Do you snore? More than an annoyance, snoring can be a sign of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), a condition caused by obstruction near the base of the tongue.

The real problem with sleep apnea isn’t snoring – it’s when snoring stops. When the snoring stops, so does your breathing. In fact, OSA can cause you to stop breathing hundreds of times in one night and often for a minute or longer.

Symptoms of OSA

  • Daytime Sleepiness
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Morning Headache
  • Irritability
  • Impaired Memory And Judgment
  • Mood Disturbance
  • Depression

Risks of OSA

As if chronic daytime sleepiness isn’t enough, more serious problems are associated with this disorder. Sleep apnea patients are much more likely to suffer from:

  • Heart disease (heart attack, congestive heart failure, hypertension)
  • Increased risk of strokes
  • A higher incidence of work related and driving related accidents
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Generalized inflammation
  • Bruxing (teeth grinding)
  • Death while sleeping

Left untreated, Obstructive Sleep Apnea can shorten the average life span by 10 years.

Dr. Saib can help. Dr. Saib is one of the first three dentists in North Carolina to be formally trained in OSA therapy. He can prescribe and fit a custom-made oral appliance to gently hold the mouth and throat in an open position during relaxed sleep and prevent snoring. Dr. Saib mostly uses the TAP III appliance for the treatment of Sleep Apnea, but has been known to use other appliances when needed.

  • I have visited more dental chairs than I want to recall. Never have I felt as comfortable at a dentist office as I do at Dr. Saib’s office. Everyone there makes you feel so comfortable. I wish I knew of Dr. Saib years ago. Dr. Saib was the first dentist that told me he was not going to judge me for the condition of my teeth. That says it all…Thank you Dr. Saib for bringing my smile back.

  • Dr. Saib and staff our always professional and friendly and make the bi-annual dentist trip as pleasant as one can be (you know, with people picking and poking in your mouth!). Thorough and considerate health care provider. Would recommend without reservation.

  • Dr. Saib and his staff are simply the best. And believe me, I know. I’ve had to have quite a bit of cosmetic dental work done in the past 20 years. His clam demeanor and obvious skills in color matching, pain management, and creating such a natural look are most appreciated. Dr. Saib listens to your concerns and addresses them. His staff is friendly, professional and welcoming. After all I have been through, I’m so grateful that I found Dr. Saib’s practice. I can smile confidently once again.

  • I love coming to the dentist. My kids love coming to the dentist! Everyone in the office is friendly, shows an interest in my family and me and makes us feel very welcome. Dr. Saib takes a conservative approach to dentistry, never trying to push any treatment, but definitely staying on top of our needs. Recommend highly!

  • My experience at Dr. Saib has been excellent. Dr. Saib and his entire staff are gracious and go out of their way to make me feel welcome and appreciated. I have many choices of local dentists but I choose to drive an hour each way to see Dr. Saib. That’s how much I think of his service.

  • Dr. Saib and all of his staff are wonderful! Everyone is very friendly and caring. I have been going to him as my general dentist for the past 10 years. He is a great dentist and very thorough! I recently decided to fix my teeth cosmetically. I had been unhappy with my teeth for a long time. Using veneers Dr. Saib made my teeth look natural and beautiful! He clearly loves doing cosmetic dentistry and does amazing work. It is very important to him that the patient is satisfied and that the teeth look great in the end. No strangers have noticed that my teeth have veneers on them, which is great and means they look very natural, but someone (who didn’t know I had gotten veneers) did comment when we were taking pictures at a party that I have a beautiful smile and look ready for bridal photos at my upcoming wedding. Thank you so much to everyone in the office! It was a great experience and I am very happy with my smile!
