More than 133 million Americans live with a chronic disease or disability...poor sleep. According to the 2006 Institute of Medicine Report, Sleep Disorders and Sleep Deprivation: An Unmet Public Health Problem, found the cumulative effects of sleep loss and sleep disorders represent an unrecognized public health problem and have been associated with a wide range of negative health consequences, including hypertension, diabetes, depression, heart attack, stroke, and at-risk behaviors such as alcohol and drug abuse.Request Appointment
Starting with a sleep evaluation, our dentist will design a sleep treatment plan to meet your specific needs with a series of our medical sleep appliances.
We custom-fit each appliance to tailor your needs. Dr. Sandhya Krishan will instruct you on how to wear your appliance. Our custom sleep treatments include the Vivos appliance which is typically worn in the evening and during sleep for between 18 and 24 months.
Most of our patients notice the effects of treatment within a few days or weeks. Periodic adjustments to your appliance will be made as we work closely with your medical sleep specialist.
I snore, did not think I did, but I do. The wonderful people at Dental Studio of Carrollton had a sleep study done for me. They did everything. I quit breathing about 50 times an hour. Dr. Krishan fitted me with an oral appliance that holds my jaws open when I sleep so I get more oxygen. I am not getting more sleep, I get better sleep. No more waking up tired or exhausted. I have more pleasant dreams and wake up less during the night. Dr. Krishan caught this right before I had to start using a CPAP machine. If you snore or been told you snore, have a sleep study done. It is well worth it.
Healthy sleep is imperative for optimal well being and health. We all require long periods of sleep to rejuvenate, grow muscle, synthesize hormones and repair tissue. A regular pattern of healthy sleep can also help you maintain a healthy weight and keep your immune system strong.
Healthy sleep also aids in your mental and emotional health. Overnight, bits of information that were gathered during the day are transferred from short-term memory into long-term memory. In addition, after people sleep, they retain information and perform memory tasks better. A healthy sleep schedule can help you stay alert, engaged and motivated. In addition, getting enough sleep can help your mood and prevent feelings of depression.
