Sleep Apnea Treatment
Sleep apnea is a health condition that deals with the way patients breathe as they’re sleeping. Essentially, the airway becomes partially or fully blocked throughout the night leading to frequent awakenings that increase blood pressure and cause daytime exhaustion. Many patients wouldn’t think to turn to a dentist in this situation, but our team can actually offer valuable help in the form of oral appliance therapy. Patients with minor to moderate cases of sleep apnea wear a custom mouthguard that moves their jaw/tongue just enough to keep air flowing freely resulting in the good night’s rest they deserve. Dr. Karen Delaney utilizes the Silent Nite® mouthguard to help you stop snoring!
Fear of the dentist is a common problem among patients of all ages, and it can happen for a number of reasons – maybe you had a bad experience as a child, or the sights and sounds of a typical office leave you feeling unsettled. Whatever the case is, your comfort is important to Dr. Delaney, and our team will always take the time to help you feel at ease before actual treatment begins. If needed, we use sedation dentistry to accomplish this. These techniques have calming effects allowing patients to lay back and relax at last as we improve the health and beauty of their smile. If you’re interested in undergoing sedation during your next visit to our Calais practice, don’t hesitate to contact us!
Digital technology has helped countless dental practices move leaps and bounds beyond the pitfalls of traditional film X-rays, and we’re no exception.

They’re also much safer minimizing radiation levels up to 90%.
