6 Reasons to Seek Help for Sleep Apnea Carrollton, GA

Obstructive sleep apnea, or OSA, affects an estimated 18 million people in the US, but many people go years without receiving treatment. They live with daily fatigue and other symptoms, accepting poorer quality of life and higher risks to their health. If you are diagnosed with OSA, it is vital to get the treatment you need. Here are six excellent reasons to seek treatment for your sleep apnea and why it may be easier than you think.

  1. Improved Energy
    If you constantly feel tired or fatigued, it is not surprising. If you have OSA, you are not getting deep sleep needed to rejuvenate your brain and body. OSA treatment can help increase your energy levels, brain focus and overall performance, at work and doing the activities you enjoy.
  2. Quiet Your Snoring
    Does your spouse or sleep partner complain about your snoring? Most people with OSA also have chronic snoring. Using oral appliance therapy can effectively treat both OSA and chronic snoring so everyone in your bedroom gets better sleep.
  3. Boost Your Metabolism
    Did you know sleep disorders like OSA can impact your metabolism? It is called metabolic syndrome and it has been linked to OSA. Not only are you more likely to have OSA if you are overweight, it can be harder to lose weight if you are not getting treatment for your sleep apnea.
  4. Reduce Your Risk for Serious Health Conditions
    OSA is linked to serious health issues. Strokes, heart disease, heart failure, diabetes, depression and many other health issues are associated with OSA. Treatment can reduce your risk and improve your overall health.
  5. Protect Your Teeth and Jaw
    Sleep bruxism (nocturnal teeth grinding) and TMJ/TMD have been linked to OSA. Those with untreated OSA may be more likely to grind their teeth and cause damage to their smile. Those with OSA are also more likely to have symptoms of TMJ/TMD, disorders involving the jaw joint. With OSA treatments like oral appliance therapy, you can protect your health and smile from OSA, bruxism and TMD.
  6. CPAP Therapy Is Not the Only Option
    Are you avoiding seeking treatment for OSA because you think you will need to use a CPAP machine while you sleep? While CPAP therapy is very effective for treating OSA, it is not always the only option. We offer oral appliance therapy at the office of Dr. Tejal Kakade that is non-invasive – no face masks or machines, just a comfortable mouthguard that is customized for your specific condition.

Do not wait any longer to get better sleep and improved health. Contact us Dr. Tejal Kakade in Carrollton to schedule an exam and consultation to discuss effective treatments for your obstructive sleep apnea.

This was absolutely the best experience I have ever had with any dentist. Dr. Tejal is so attentive to the needs of her patients. She cares deeply about the quality of service provided and taking care of you individually. You don't feel like a number. You leave knowing that you received the best care and beautiful smile to go with it.

I have never had a bad experience going to see Dr. Kakade and her amazing, caring staff. They make it super easy to book an appointment, send you helpful reminders via text, and you are in and out in a short amount of time with hardly any wait time. The office is warm and inviting with nice decor and even dentist chairs that massage you! Best of all, the entire staff genuinely care about their patients and want to help them have the best experience possible. They remember you and get to know you. I actually look forward to going!

Dr. Tejal and her wonderful staff do everything humanly possible to make every patient feel welcomed, supported, and cared for with the utmost compassion and professionalism. It feels as though one has been adopted into a family of caretakers and that you are a part of the family. 5 Stars and thumbs up all the way! They are the best! I speak from personal experience.


My family has used Dr. Tejal since she started her practice in Carrollton. She is thorough, detailed, and comprehensive in her approach to dental care. She seems to invest in new technology and modern methods to make routine and extraordinary care as easy for the patient as possible. Candy has been my hygienist for over a decade and does a fantastic job restoring my teeth to tip-top shape. On the rare occasion when Candy was unavailable, the other members of Dr. Tejal's team have been excellent.

Jordan D.

Calm and peaceful office.

Wonderful office staff, nice environment. Dr. Tejal and staff do a great job of making one feel comfortable and the dental work after local anesthesia want uncomfortable. Few people like going to the dentist, but my experience here has been excellent.
