Do you feel tired all day? Does your partner complain you snore loudly and gasp for air during the night?

We can help. Learn how Las Sendas Dental Health in Mesa, AZ, can reduce sleep apnea symptoms with non-surgical treatment.
A Closer Look at Obstructive Sleep Apnea
How Is Sleep Apnea Diagnosed?
If you present obstructive sleep apnea symptoms such as daytime sleepiness or morning headaches, our dentists may refer you to a local sleep specialist to make a precise sleep apnea diagnosis. You may need to take a sleep study, which involves wearing a monitor at home while you sleep. A sleep study can precisely measure your oxygen levels, sleep patterns, and more. The sleep study data will be submitted to a trusted specialist, who will determine the type and severity of your sleep disorder.
You are at a higher risk of developing obstructive sleep apnea if you are overweight, a smoker, male, have medical conditions such as type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure, or have a family history of the condition.
Tired of Being Tired?
Schedule a Sleep Apnea Consultation
No one should live life feeling like they could nod off at any time during the day. Life in Arizona offers too many wonderful things to stay awake for! Patients who sleep soundly are more likely to have increased energy throughout the day, and experience better concentration at work and while driving. Additionally, good, uninterrupted sleep can improve cardiovascular and overall health for both you and your bed partner. Drs. Martin and Derek Farnsworth can show you how a simple customized oral appliance can reduce or eliminate your sleep apnea symptoms.

Oral Appliance Therapy from Our Skilled Dentists
If your case is mild to moderate, an oral appliance may reduce or eliminate your symptoms. The Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine has found that oral appliance therapy can effectively treat obstructive sleep apnea without the need for surgery.
If you're diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea, Drs. Martin and Derek Farnsworth can create a customized oral appliance at their state-of-the-art Mesa, AZ, practice for you to wear at night. This effective, non-surgical treatment gently pushes your lower jaw forward, opening your upper airway to increase airflow and reduce obstructive sleep apnea symptoms.
Our sleep apnea appliances are created at an offsite, Medicare-certified laboratory and designed by your dentist to fit snugly and comfortably over your teeth. After your dentist takes precise impressions of your smile, the turnaround time to fabricate your appliance will be seven to 10 days. We offer TAP™ and Myerson® EMA® oral appliances, depending on your individual needs.

What an AMAZING practice. In my 48 years, I have never experienced a dental practice of this magnitude. They spent 2.5 hours thoroughly going through my first exam. They took x-rays, pictures and even a mini-catscan of my jaw. The office is beautiful and staff is very friendly. They even brought me a bottle of water at one point..... I would give this practice 10 stars if I could!!!!!View on Google
The staff and doctors are the best at Las Sendas. They are always so kind, careful, accommodating and keep to a schedule. My hygienist was wonderful, she made me feel comfortable and I’m not a huge fan of dental cleanings. The doctor identified a couple of issues to watch and I know I’m in good hands. Thank you to the whole office for being so outstanding!View on Google
