Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice, and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable.

Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the Alberta Dental Association and College (ADA&C), Health Canada and the Canadian Centre For Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS).

We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.

To ensure the health and well-being of our patients and team members, we have installed 2 different types of air purifiers at our dental office. Both of these are manufactured by the Canadian company, Surgically Clean Air.

Both of these filters perform their duties without being loud, (an industry-leading low level of about 55DB) or creating a “breeze” that can be uncomfortable for our patients. 

Some additional changes you may also see when it is time for your next appointment. For example:

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at (403) 382‑2273.

So come on in to get your dental work done and enjoy Surgically Clean Air!

Snoring Devices

Your best source for Sleep Apnea and Snoring devices in Lethbridge, Alberta

Snoring and Sleep Apnea

Occasional snoring shouldn't be an issue. However, if you feel sleepy and exhausted during the day, that can be a sign of sleep apnea. To know more about snoring devices, contact Cool Dental at Lethbridge area to book your consultation.

Identifying the reasons why you snore helps you find possible ways to stop it. Start by monitoring your snoring. Ask a family member to help you or use a camera to record yourself as you sleep.

You may find that you’re snoring when you’re lying on your back or have had drinks the night before. There are several possibilities. But if you find yourself snoring regardless of your sleeping position or diet, then that can mean that the issue is more serious.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea needs to be treated as soon as possible as it can result in various health issues. It keeps you from getting deep sleep. And it can also affect your job performance and personal relationships.

If you’ve already tried a treatment option before that you weren’t comfortable with, consider trying it again. It may already work for you this time.

For mild to moderate sleep apnea or for patients that can’t tolerate a CPAP device, a snoring device is one alternative to consider. But remember that sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder. You need to stay in touch with your physician for your treatment decisions.

Snoring Device for a Restful Sleep

So, you’re probably thinking about how your dentist can help. In some cases, snoring or sleep apnea can be treated with the help of an oral appliance.

Here in our Lethbridge dental office, we can customize a snoring device for you to help you minimize snoring. This device keeps the lower jaw forward so it doesn’t obstruct the airflow as you sleep. The air can freely navigate, allowing you to breathe and sleep properly.

How Does a Snoring Device Work?

We fit and adjust the device to ensure it fits you right. The snoring device prevents your jaw from over-relaxing and helps keep your airways clear. It's made up of two pieces - the upper and lower appliance.

The upper and lower appliances aren’t locked together and are removable. The lower jaw appliance is also adjustable so you can move your lower jaw comfortably during your sleep. Dr. Lachman will adjust your snoring device according to your needs.

If you’ve already tried using a sports mouth guard before, a snoring device works similarly but feels a lot better as it’s thinner. You only need to wear your snoring device when you sleep and it’s easy to maintain, too.

Are Snoring Devices More Effective than CPAP?

Many of our patients at our Lethbridge dental office find our oral sleep appliance highly effective. They find it easier to use and carry around. However, the only way we can determine which snoring treatment will be best for you is by working with your physician.

Your cooperation and willingness to try different treatment options matters a lot. As your trusted health care practitioners, we'll find the most treatment effective option for you and assist you throughout the process.

Book your initial consultation today to learn more about snoring and sleep apnea. Cool Dental is always open to new and existing patients. Let’s see how using custom oral appliances can ease your snoring and sleep apnea.
