Sleep Apnea Treatment

Do you wake up in the mornings from a full night’s sleep, yet feel unrested? Has your sleep companion complained of snoring coming from your side of the bed? Do you grind your teeth at night? All of these symptoms can be found in individuals with obstructive sleep apnea, and it could be affecting your health. Your airway may be blocked while you are sleeping, causing you to gasp, snore and sleep restlessly. Get relief and protect your health with a visit to Gilreath Family Dentistry for sleep apnea treatment.

An estimated 22 million people in the United States suffer from sleep apnea. For mild and moderate apnea (which most people with apnea have), a dental Sleep Appliance is the recommended treatment of choice NOT a CPAP machine! A dental sleep appliance repositions the lower jaw in a more forward position during sleep. This pulls the tongue away from the back of your throat and opens the airway.

American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine logo.Dr. Gilreath is an accredited member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine. He works closely with many ENT and Pulmonology groups in the area when you are diagnosed with sleep apnea. For many people, a CPAP machine is very uncomfortable and disrupts their sleep. A dental sleep appliance can often be used even if you have been prescribed a CPAP machine.

Relief from Snoring and Teeth Grinding

A customized dental Sleep Appliance is also beneficial for those who snore or grind their teeth when they are sleeping. The appliance is different from a nightguard used for grinding or clenching. A dental Sleep Appliance adjusts the jaw to help prevent snoring by keeping the airway open. The appliacnes also keep your teeth from touching, and so these appliances also reduce damage to your teeth and jaw while also reducing the noise that can be distracting for those who sleep near you.

Protect your smile and health with a good night’s sleep free from snoring and teeth grinding.
If you suffer from sleep apnea, loud snoring or teeth grinding, come see us at Gilreath Family Dentistry. Dr. Gilreath and Dr. Nezafat can perform an exam and create a customized sleep appliance if needed for treatment.

Dr. Gilreath is incredible with my kids. They love going to the dentist now! And this busy mom loves the warm neck wraps, the soft music and enjoying a latte while I relax!

Kenneth H.

Was lucky enough to find these guys when I got insurance that my old dentist did not take. Very professional and friendly staff! Office has the latest greatest technology as well. If you're looking for a new dentist, search no further!

Susie L.

Very personable and friendly, they took the time to go over my complex dental history and did not pressure me into anything. They gave their recommendations and priced out any options I had. Great group!

Camille Y.

Dr. Gilreath and his staff are top notch. I received the best cleaning I've ever had while watching my favorite show. The Doctor and his staff were all very polite, friendly, and courteous. They explained everything to me clearly and presented me with options in a gentle way that didn't make me feel pressured at all. It's obvious they really care about the wellbeing of their patients. The facility and equipment is really nice as well. I will definitely be back!

Juan R.

Always willing to work around my kids and my schedules. Today I had a long appointment. They started on time and always made sure I was comfortable and that the pain was managed so the procedure could’ve been completed without issues. Very courteous and professional staff.

Lucia B.

Awesome dental practice! The staff is friendly and efficient. Dr. Gilreath is thorough and versed in the latest technology and procedures. I love that he can make crowns in the office while you wait (so no walking around with a temporary crown for days or weeks). I would strongly recommend this dental practice!

Matthew W.

I've been going here for about a little over a year now. I've had a few cleanings, a filling, and started Invisiline so far. Hands down, the best run dental office I've ever been to. In the past at other dental offices I often had to wait 30 or more minutes beyond my appointment time before being seen. At Dr. Gilreath's office I've been seen on time every time. They seem to have systems in place to make every part of your visit run smoothly. From how they took x-rays, to billing and appointments, to the work done by the hygienist/dentist, everything seems to run like a well oiled machine. On top of that all the staff are all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The office space itself is also quite nice. Very clean, well maintained, and seems very "up to date" with their equipment. If you're looking for a dentist and are anywhere in the northwest metro area I would highly recommend Dr. Gilreath.

Jhion R.

The staff is always so courteous and personable. They make us feel like family every time we have an appointment. Service is excellent, too. My wife recently went for a cleaning and Dr. Gilreath noticed a chip in one of her fillings. He knew we recently had another baby and that her time was very limited so he went ahead and did the filling right then and there, an extra thirty minutes tops. Dr. Gilreath is always looking at the big picture and really knows his stuff. We will never go anywhere else
