Snoring & Sleep Apnea Pennington NJ

You probably haven’t considered visiting the dentist for snoring or sleep apnea treatment. But, dentistry isn’t limited to the cleaning and care of teeth. The office of Dr. Donna Vagnozzi-Bucci can treat sleep related breathing disorders such as snoring and sleep apnea using a dental appliance known as a snore guard.

About Snoring and Sleep Apnea

Snoring is characterized on TV and in movies as a hilarious condition. In reality, snoring is an extremely complex condition, affecting millions of Americans. Both the snorer and their partner have a diminished quality of sleep. In addition, studies have linked snoring to major health problems including sleep apnea.

Did You Know? 50% of people who snore loudly have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)
*According to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the most common of the sleep-related breathing disorder. Patients who suffer with OSA stop breathing repeatedly during their sleep, caused by a blockage of the airway usually caused when the soft tissue in the back of the mouth collapses.

Stop Snoring With Dental Sleep Medicine

Dental sleep medicine is a facet of general dentistry focused on treating sleep disorders such as snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). The office of Dr. Vagnozzi-Bucci uses oral appliance therapy to treat snoring and mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea.

What is a Snore Guard and how does it work?
A snore guard is a removable device, similar to a sports mouth guard. The device is designed to properly align the jaws and prevent the tongue and soft tissue from blocking the airway.

Studies show that patients who have been successfully treated for sleep apnea with both the CPAP and a dental appliance preferred the dental appliance as their long term option.

  • You have been such a great support in the care for our mother over these years. I wanted to keep her pain free and you helped us with that. The last miraculous feat was the saving of that front tooth that broke. It made me smile because she hated that her teeth were discolored. She would have LOVED that shiny white tooth!! Thank you for that and, for contributing to alzheimer's research in her name.

Everyone is friendly and professional and always makes you feel comfortable. I had two bridges done that have worked out great!

  • I have been a patient of Dr. Vagnozzi Bucci Spa Dental Practice since April 2002 and I’m extremely happy. I have dental insurance that I cannot use at the office however, I still choose to go there. The whole staff is superior in their technical abilities, attitude and professionalism. Every procedure I have had done there has exceeded my expectations. Painless dentistry at its finest. I can not use enough adjectives to describe and praise these doctors and professional staff. It’s not the dentistry you remember from your childhood; this is the dental practice of the future.

  • I just wanted to thank all of you for taking such good care of my aunt while she and my uncle were in the states from Australia. They were thrilled with her new teeth and told us you were amazing! I know medical/dental care is no where near as good in the U.K. or Australia as it is here, so I am glad if she had to have treatment, it was done by you. Thanks you again; I owe you one, but hope you don’t need any physical therapy anytime soon...
