I have been visiting Dr. Bradley's office several times in the last 12 months, for several types of dental care ranging from regular cleaning, to root canal, to tooth extraction, to dental implant. I was always under the care by the doctor himself, with Doreen on the side. At the front desk, Jenn and Kelly were quite helpful on getting my appointments scheduled, as well as handling the insurance side of things. Due to the schedule/plan changes, I also needed to adjust the treatment plans and appointments. I was able to get them done pretty quickly with calls and emails with Kelly and Jenn. As a whole, it has been a great experience for me!

Sleep Apnea Treatment in Beaverton OR

Sleep apnea is a common condition in the United States. It can occur when the upper airway becomes blocked repeatedly during sleep, reducing or completely stopping airflow. This is known as obstructive sleep apnea. The “apnea” in sleep apnea refers to a breathing pause that lasts at least ten seconds. More than 18 million American adults have sleep apnea, but it occurs in all age groups and both sexes. Childhood sleep apnea is gaining prevalence with some estimates showing 2-3% of the US population; however, those estimates could be as high as 10-20% in habitually snoring children.

Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when the muscles in the back of the throat fail to keep the airway open, despite efforts to breathe. Another form of sleep apnea is central sleep apnea, in which the brain fails to properly control breathing during sleep. Obstructive sleep apnea is far more common than central sleep apnea.

Sleep apnea can cause fragmented sleep and low blood oxygen levels. For people with sleep apnea, the combination of disturbed sleep and oxygen starvation may lead to hypertension, heart disease and mood and memory problems.

Oral Sleep Appliances

Treatment for diagnosed sleep apnea in our office is an oral sleep appliance. A sleep appliance is used to open the airway by moving the lower jaw forward, thus moving the tongue away from the oropharynx. This allows improved airflow, increases the oxygen levels in the blood, and reestablishes the normal sleep pattern. The market for types of appliances has increased and can be confusing for patients, however, Dr. Bradley highly recommends the TAP III Elite sleep appliance, which he uses most often and calls it the Ferrari of oral appliance therapy.

Delivery of a sleep appliance takes two appointments. The first appointment involves full mouth impressions of your teeth, a bite registration to determine your bite relationship, fabrication of a jaw muscle deprogrammer, and fabrication of models. The second appointment is the delivery, adjustment, and instructions for use.

Dr. Bradley is my new dentist. My first visit went smooth and didn't have to wait long. Got my teeth checked and a plan of action was quickly set in place to get my teeth back to getting them cleaned and fixed. His dentistry team made me feel welcome and comfortable. Glad to have him and his team as my dentistry team. Thank you.
