Treats Sleep Apnea, Snoring
Dacula, Georgia, July 23,2019– Local dentist Dr. Wenona Van Derhei, DDS, DABDSM is now helping Georgia residents get a more restful night’s sleep. Dr. Wenona Van Derhei, DDS, DABDSM of VIP Family Dentistry recently became an American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine (ABDSM) Diplomate. ABDSM is the board for the leading national organization for dentists who treat snoring and obstructive sleep apnea with oral appliance therapy. Earning Diplomate status from the ABDSM is a unique honor that recognizes special competency in dental sleep medicine.
“Sleeping with a CPAP machine, which includes a face mask, tubing and a constantly running motor, can be difficult, and many Georgia residents are unaware that an effective – and comfortable –treatment is available,” said Dr. Wenona Van Derhei, DDS, DABDSM “I’m committed to using my knowledge of dental sleep medicine to help treat my patient’s snoring and sleep apnea and provide Georgia residents with a better night’s rest.”
While CPAP is the standard treatment for sleep apnea, the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine estimates up to 50 percent of sleep apnea patients do not comply with or tolerate CPAP. In contrast to a CPAP machine, oral appliances are a mouth guard-like device worn only during sleep to maintain an open, unobstructed airway. Patients like oral appliance therapy because it is comfortable, easy to wear, quiet, portable and easy to care for.
“Oral appliance therapy is an effective treatment option that offers a higher rate of patient compliance than CPAP,” said Dr. Wenona, Van Derhei, DDS, DABDSM “I work with my patients, and their sleep physicians, to identify the right oral appliance device, custom fit devices to each patient and make any needed adjustments to ensure an open airway and a more restful sleep.”
Dr. Wenona Van Derhei, DDS, DABDSM is located at 3590 Braselton Hwy, Ste 103, Dacula, GA 30019. Patients with loud snoring and diagnosed sleep apnea sufferers with difficulty tolerating CPAP should contact Dr. WENONA VAN DERHEI, DDS, DABDSM at 678-318-3353 to schedule a consultation appointment. Dr. WENONA VAN DERHEI, DDS, DABDSM works closely with physicians to treat snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.
