Snoring and Sleep Apnea in Shoreline, WA
Win Back Control of Your Sleep
Did you know that millions of Americans suffer from undiagnosed sleep disorders? A sleep disorder condition like sleep apnea can affect your overall health and well-being beyond a good night’s sleep. Signs of a sleep disorder often include teeth grinding at night, snoring, daytime fatigue, and gasping for air at night. Many people will report they cannot get a solid night of sleep, but they have never been thoroughly examined simply because their doctors have not had the extensive training as Dr. Brenner. At Bright 32, your comprehensive exam will thoroughly examine you for all dental related health issues, and that includes making sure you breathe properly.
A sleep disorder like obstructive sleep apnea left untreated can lead to serious medical complications like heart disease, diabetes, weight gain, and high blood pressure. Dental issues often arise like TMJ problems, chronic bad breath, and the wearing down of teeth and restorations. A comprehensive exam by Dr. Brenner at Bright 32 Family Dentistry and a sleep study can help determine if you have an underlying cause of your sleep and breathing problems.
Sleep Apnea Treatment at Bright 32
When you call us, you’ll instantly feel like our top priority. Our goal is to have you sleeping better so you can once again wake up feeling refreshed and ready to conquer the day! It’s important to be evaluated by Dr. Brenner before purchasing a sleep appliance that you feel may solve your problems. In fact, an appliance wrongly used can hinder your breathing.
A proper diagnosis and sleep study is necessary to determine the proper course of treatment. At Bright 32 Family Dentistry we can set you up with a same-night sleep study in the comfort of your own home, or screen you at our offices. After that, your information will be sent to one of our elite sleep physicians for a thorough analysis and diagnosis.
Once you’ve been diagnosed, Dr. Brenner will come up with a treatment plan that suits your unique needs. Common types of treatment for sleep apnea depend on your individual requirements, but often include a mandibular positioning device or tongue stabilizer to help create more room in your mouth for improved breathing.
Our unparalleled success comes in part from our work with the Facial Beauty Institute. We’ve studied the ideal proportions and structure of the human face, and discovered that when we adjust any underdeveloped areas to match those standards, sleep apnea systems often disappear easily. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Brenner today to begin your journey to a more peaceful night’s sleep.

How do I know if I have sleep apnea?
Warning signs are often fatigue throughout the day, loud snoring, and breathing interruptions and gasping for air while sleeping. If you experience any of these symptoms you should get a proper evaluation for a sleep disorder.
How long does a sleep study take?
We can do your sleep study over the course of one night. We typically need about six hours of sleep data in order to make a proper diagnosis and devise a treatment plan for you. You’ll also spend some time talking about the procedure with a sleep technician.
What is the cost of sleep apnea treatment?
The exact pricing for your treatment can only be determined after an exam. At Bright 32 we accept most major dental insurances, offer an in-office membership program, as well as provide flexible financing options to reduce your out-of-pocket expenses. We work with all of our patients to fit costs into your budget and find a plan that works for YOU!
