Millennium Smiles’ enhanced OSA services are designed to increase the diagnosis and treatment rates for OSA, which it states can lead to serious health consequences. Symptoms that an individual may experience include restless sleep, unusual daytime sleepiness, mood disturbances, loud snoring, and learning or memory problems.
According to the US Library of Medicine, obstructive sleep apnea could affect up to 30% of the adult population. However, many cases may remain undiagnosed. Along with nighttime restlessness and excessive feelings of sleepiness during the day, long-term health impacts could include cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, and strokes.
Millennium Smiles states that its latest CBCT scans are designed to observe a patient’s mouth, nasal, and throat areas, with the aim of identifying potential causes of OSA. As the practice explains, the condition can be a result of nasal obstructions, soft palate collapse, tongue obstruction, or collapse of the airways in the throat, and CBCT allows for a closer review of each area.
Similarly, the practice points out that each cause requires its own treatment approach. To that end, Millennium Smiles offers a range of FDA-approved appliances, which are fitted using a detailed mold of each patient’s mouth, providing a more comfortable and effective solution.
