Introduction to Sleep Apnea

Sleep Apnea - Precision Dentistry of Howard

Sleep apnea is a common sleep disorder characterized by interruptions in breathing during sleep. These interruptions, known as apneas, can last for several seconds to minutes and may occur multiple times throughout the night. There are three main types of sleep apnea: obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), central sleep apnea (CSA), and complex sleep apnea syndrome, also called treatment-emergent central sleep apnea.

I came to the office at Precision Dental of Howard for a consult about tooth implants to replace two teeth that I had extracted. Prior to the extractions, I had an ongoing infection in my mouth that 2 dentists, 2 ENT's, and an oral surgeon could not figure out. I had one x-ray at Precision Dental, and Dr. O'Donoghue was able to tell me more about the possible origins of the infection than all of the providers that I had seen combined. The news was not great, but I was so grateful for his expertise and explanation of what may be going on. Clearly, he has so much knowledge to share, and truly wants to help people. I am beyond appreciative that I may be finally figuring out the source of the infection, and taking steps to once again have a healthy mouth and smile. It has been a very long road. Very happy to have found him!

Dr. O’Donoghue I have to tip my hat to you and bow!!! You made me feel very comfortable and I am a person who came to you for help with a mouth full of failed teeth and a white knuckle fear of the dentist. Your skills are quite extensive and your nature is kind, honest and gentle. In addition your staff is also splendid and very supportive and helpful. Katarina and Sophia, I can’t thank you enough and it is such a comfort, to me, as a patient, that you all work in sync with each other. Blessings to you all!!!

Absolutely by far, the best dental experience I have had. I have had an extensive amount of previous dental work done, and with the installation of my first implant performed at precision dentistry being the most extensive work. I couldn't imagine a better experience. Virtually painless every single time and the work was done with the highest level of precision. To sum up the experience. If I had not been awake for experience I wouldn't even have know it happened. Extremely pleased and happy with the work is an understatement! A very happy patient!!
