Could Your Dentist Help You Sleep Better? Carrollton, GA
Trouble Sleeping Carrollton GA

Snoring and teeth grinding are two of the most common habits that occur during nighttime sleep. Since they both involve your mouth, they can both be addressed by your dentist. Our Carrollton office has a dentist who is qualified to treat all aspects of your dental health, including the concerns you have while you are awake, as well as those that occur during your sleep. If you suffer from load snoring, sleep apnea episodes, teeth grinding, or jaw clenching while you are trying to catch some zzzz’s, there are ways to help. Dr. Kakade offers methods to protect your smile, your overall health and your quality of sleep!

Sleeping is a time for your body to restore itself. However, if you have sleep apnea or grind your teeth throughout the night, you may wake up with damaging consequences instead of revitalized rest. Sleep apnea is a serious sleep condition that is often marked by loud snoring or sudden gasps for air. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) occurs when the soft tissue in the throat collapses and blocks the airway during sleep which stops breathing. While the snoring is certainly disruptive, the health consequences are quite threatening as well. Patients may encounter daytime sleepiness and headaches as well as high blood pressure, depression and much more.

What is Dental Sleep Medicine?

Dental sleep medicine involves treatment for snoring and sleep apnea. It often means that the patient will wear a custom oral appliance that is designed to set the jaw in a proper position to open the airway and prevent snoring and sleep apnea episodes. This means you’ll not only sleep quieter, but your brain will get adequate oxygen supply throughout the night. Successful dental sleep medicine leads to a better sleep during the night and a healthier body during the day.

Oral appliance therapy can also be used to protect your smile from bruxism, or teeth grinding. Teeth grinders often suffer from tension headaches, TMJ disorder and worn down teeth. A custom oral appliance (or mouthguard) can be a perfect remedy for your subconscious grinding or clenching.

Do you have oral sleep habits that are causing harm to your health or lowering your quality of life? Whether it is yourself or your snoring bed partner, we can help you at our Carrollton office. Schedule your dental sleep medicine consult with Dr. Tejal Kakade today.

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.

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.
