  1. Preventive Visits Cover Issues Like Sleep Apnea

    Oral sleep appliances and snore guards are life savers for many. What is the difference? How do I know if I or my loved ones need either?

    Are you tired? Do you fall asleep anytime your sit down for more than a minute or two? Do you snore or gasp for air at night? There is one way to know if you are suffering breathing difficulties when you sleep. Have a professional sleep study. There are markers such as tooth wear, snoring, or gasping for air while asleep but the most accurate diagnosis of sleep apnea is through a sleep study.

    Proper Sleep Enhances Your Mood and Smile

    Your doctor can prescribe a sleep study. Once you have a diagnosis you will rest easy. If you do have sleep apnea you may chose to use a C-PAP machine. If you have mild sleep apnea or are non-compliant with your C-PAP you may be a candidate for an oral sleep appliance. This is an oral device that repositions the jaw and opens the airway.

    Snoring has ended relationships. Many people have found relief with a snore guard. It is different but like an oral sleep appliance.

    Please ask you dentist for more information and wake up bright and fresh.

  2. Zzzzzzz Don’t Hit Snooze on This!
    What you Need to Know about Snore Guards and Sleep Apnea

    Do you snore? Does your partner or family member snore?  Often times, people become irritated and bothered when someone’s snoring wakes them up but did you know there may be an underlining medical disorder?

    Sleep apnea is a serious condition that should not be ignored. When someone has sleep apnea, they stop breathing for short periods throughout the night.

    Did you know your dentist can provide relief?

    Sleep apnea patients may opt for a continuous positive airway pressure device (CPAP) machine that is worn at night. There is another solution that your dentist can treat you with — of you not only snore but are not getting enough oxygen you can be fitted for an oral appliance that opens the airway. Oral appliances and snore guards are similar to night guards but reposition your tongue and lower jaw. This realignment clears your obstructed airway and allows you to breath regularly while you sleep.

    You owe it to yourself and your family to get a better nights sleep — sleep is critical to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

    Thanks Dr. Frankel!

    Thanks Dr. Frankel!


    I was diagnosed with Sleep Apnea in 2012 by the UTMC sleep clinic and a CPAP machine was recommended for the treatment of my severe condition.


    I struggled to find a Medical supply company that was not relocating or closing their doors every several months and even worse, trying to find a suitable breathing apparatus that I did not want to tear off in the middle of the night. That went on for 1 ½ years and then I simply stopped using CPAP because it kept waking me and disrupting my sleep. For over the past year I have been mot using any sleeping device other that trying “Breathe Right” strips, which had no effect, and sleeping very poorly. My snoring was so bad that my wife could not sleep in the same room and was affecting her sleep as well and was putting a strain on our marriage.


    While visiting my Primary Care Physician, Robert Axonovitz, he advised me to see a dentist specializing in a mouth piece that helps stop snoring.


    During the next regular visit to Jon Frankel Dentistry, I spoke with him regarding a mouth piece that he highly recommended and had a huge success from patient reviews and feedback.


    Since using the mouth guard treatment my sleep pattern has increased and my snoring has ended from the very first night! I actually enjoy wearing it each night.


    My wife and I now sleep together and we wake more rested. I thanked Doctor Frankel and his great staff for saving our marriage.


    I whole-heartedly recommend this product and an additional benefit of the mouth guard is that there will no longer be monthly expenses for the machine supplies.
