Dental Sleep Solutions of Clarksville opened in 2012 being the first dental office in the Clarksville area to have a dedicated arm in the treatment of snoring, bruxism, and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Dr. Cornell is also the only dentist in the area boarded by the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine and bestowed the title of Diplomate. She is passionate about getting to know her patients, understanding their story and works hard to achieve a better-quality sleep for her patients. Her dedicated registered dental assistant Kayla is equally as passionate and works tirelessly to assure each individual treatment is as successful as it can be.
Untreated sleep apnea can have devastating effects on a person’s life expectancy, mood, energy level as well as issues in controlling other medical issues. Each patient is unique and there are various oral appliance designs to fit each patient’s unique condition. We use the latest technology to work with not only our patients but referring physicians, dentists and medical personnel.
Snoring not only is a potential sign of sleep apnea but it can also create issues in a relationship. We work to get couples back in the same bed with each other! Snore guards will help not only you but your bed partner sleep well again!
Nighttime bruxism, or teeth grinding, can have lasting and costly effects on your dentition. Over time the teeth can be so worn down it will affect the vertical position of your jaw. You can also crack teeth or dental restorations, cause soft tissue damage as well headaches, jaw pain and can even lead to TMJ issues.
The jaw joints can be affected by an airway issue. Chronic clenching and grinding causes micro trauma on the jaw joints. Over time this can lead to pain and dysfunction of the joints. We use splint therapy and a variety of other services to help relieve pain in the jaw joints so our patients can return back to normal function.
If you or someone you know suffers from sleep apnea and cannot tolerate their CPAP there are alternative treatments such as dental appliances that may be right for you.
