Conditions We Treat
People who snore are 50% more likely to have obstructive sleep apnea, a dangerous medical condition that can lead to numerous health problems and even death. Our treatment eliminates snoring, helping you and your partner get a great night’s rest and live a longer, better life.
If you’re already using a CPAP machine then you know how uncomfortable and cumbersome they can be. In most cases, oral appliance therapy can replace your CPAP machine, allowing you to get a more healthful, restorative night’s sleep while still effectively treating your sleep apnea.
Excessive Daytime Sleepiness
If you’re feeling sleepy throughout the day, it may be because you’re breathing poorly while you sleep. Oral appliance therapy opens up your airway so that your blood is enriched with oxygen at night, leading to increased daytime energy levels and an overall improvement in your wellbeing.
ABOUT DSM ASSOCIATES:
We are a multi-location group of healthcare providers based in Louisiana who solely treat obstructive sleep apnea. We put our patients first and work closely with partner physicians to determine an optimal course of treatment so you can start enjoying a healthful, restorative night’s sleep.
Our doctors have completed hundreds of hours in sleep dentistry continuing education and employ the latest technology and treatment methodologies. Additionally, our unique, cutting edge telehealth platform enables you to see us for your initial screening and post-treatment followup visits from the comfort of your own home.
At DSM Associates, we understand that sleep is absolutely vital to your health, productivity and overall well-being.
We take sleep apnea seriously because of its associated risk with hypertension, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s and erectile dysfunction. There are even new studies which demonstrate a correlation between sleep apnea and some forms of cancer.
We’re a sleep practice; not a dental practice who also does sleep appliances.
We treat our patients with comfortable, custom-made, adjustable oral devices that open their airway while they sleep, allowing air to pass through the throat by repositioning the jaw in a slightly downward and forward position, which prevents the throat from closing during sleep.
