Dr. DiVito Can Help You Achieve a Restful Night’s Sleep!
According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, nearly a third of Americans suffer from sleep disorders characterized by excessive snoring. Of these sleep disorders, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is one of the most common. Dr. Enrico DiVito has advanced training for treatment of TMJ. He can treat the underlying cause of your TMJ/TMD, thereby relieving your painful symptoms. You will be happy to know that TMJ/TMD can often be stopped and reversed with the proper care.
What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a condition in which tissue in the back of the throat collapses during sleep, blocking the airway. When this happens, the flow of oxygen is obstructed. Those with sleep apnea temporarily stop breathing while they are sleeping — until they wake up gasping for air. Bouts of OSA can literally occur hundreds of times each night, so individuals with sleep apnea often wake up each morning feeling exhausted, even if they have been in bed for eight or more hours.
Some other symptoms of sleep disorders include:
- Irregular heartbeat
- Increased susceptibility to Heart Attack
- Increased susceptibility to Stoke
- High blood pressure
- Loud snoring
- Waking up with an extremely sore or dry throat
- Waking up in the middle of sleeping with a choking or gasping sensation
- Irritability and fatigue
- Inability to concentrate
- Frequent insomnia or trouble staying asleep
- Sleepiness or lack of energy during the day
- Trouble staying awake while driving
- Headaches in the morning
- Restless sleep patterns
Dr. Enrico Divito uses the latest techniques in dental sleep medicine and oral appliance therapy including the most recent non-surgical and noninvasive use of the Erbium laser. If you are a new patient who believes you may have a sleep disorder, or a existing sleep apnea sufferer who is looking for an alternative to traditional CPAP therapies, Dr. DiVito and his team of sleep apnea professionals can provide you with a full range of diagnostic and treatment services.

Treating Sleep Apnea
Most people do not associate sleep disorders with dental treatment, but rather attribute their condition to other health problems such as respiratory function or weight. On the contrary, changes to the alignment of the jaw can open the airways and significantly reduce the occurrence of snoring and breathing cessation. Arizona Center Laser for Laser Dentistry is focused on providing solutions for sleep disorders that will vastly improve sleep related medical conditions and quality of life.
Using A Dental Laser To Treat Snoring and Sleep Apnea
Treating sleep disordered breathing will not only help you and your loved one get a better night’s sleep, but it will also improve your general health and comfort level while increasing both the quality and length of your life. If you exhibit any of the symptoms of sleep apnea, it is important to seek treatment.
