With many cases of sleep apnea going undiagnosed, Frisco dental clinic Millennium Smiles (972-987-4899) expands its advanced assessment and treatment services.

The practice now offers its cone-beam computed tomography scans to clients in Little Elm, Plano, McKinney, and surrounding districts. The technology can assist in identifying potential causes of obstructive sleep apnea, allowing dentists to recommend more in-depth investigation in a sleep lab.

As part of the recent expansion, Millennium Smiles also offers treatment with some of the latest continuous positive air pressure (CPAP) devices and professionally fitted oral appliances. The clinic’s goal is to increase the rates of diagnosis and treatment in the wider Frisco region, reducing the impact that OSA has on the health of local residents.

The American Sleep Apnea Association, an educational non-profit, reports that up to 15% of females and 30% of males in the US suffer from OSA. The association describes typical symptoms as including loud snoring, daytime fatigue, restless sleep, headaches, problems with memory and concentration, and changes in mood.

Millennium Smiles explains that OSA is usually caused by a collapse or obstruction in the airways, and the clinic’s updated diagnosis systems are designed to identify abnormally narrow structures. While CBCT scans do not provide full diagnosis, they do offer a rapid and effective screening tool to determine if further investigation is warranted.

Depending on the cause and severity of OSA, Millennium Smiles also offers a variety of modern treatment options. The clinic’s fitted oral appliances are designed as a more comfortable alternative to CPAP machines, and the ability to make minor adjustments allows for more effective treatment than off-the-shelf products.
