Sleep Dentistry


Do you struggle to get a good night’s sleep because your partner snores? Do you suffer from daytime sleepiness? At South Bay Dentistry we offer FDA approved NightLase treatment to help with snoring and sleep apnea. NightLase treatment is a highly effective and non-invasive solution for snoring and sleep apnea, utilizing the advanced Fotona LightWalker laser technology. This innovative laser treatment is designed to tighten and strengthen the tissues in the throat and mouth, addressing the root cause of snoring and sleep apnea. By delivering gentle laser energy to the targeted areas, NightLase stimulates collagen production and tightens the tissues, improving the airway’s stability and reducing the occurrence of disruptive snoring and sleep interruptions. If you or your partner snores and it is keeping you up at night and preventing you from getting a good night sleep please visit us in Apollo Beach to see how we can help you sleep well.

Sleep Apnea Screening Using Zmachine Synergy Home Sleep Test

Home sleep tests are an efficient and convenient method of screening for sleep disordered breathing, a condition characterized by interrupted breathing during sleep. If you are seeking snoring solutions, relief from a restless night’s sleep, or relief from acid reflux, a home sleep test may be ideal for you. At South Bay Dentistry we offer the Zmachine Synergy Home Sleep test to our patients. This small machine is worn at home for one night and monitors breathing patterns, heart rate, oxygen levels, sleep position, snoring, and brainwave activity. This non-invasive screening option allows individuals to address their sleep-related concerns promptly and explore appropriate treatment options tailored to their specific needs. Dr. McCaskill will partner with your physician to see that you get the care you need.

Mandibular Advancement Devices (MADs)

Mandibular advancement devices (MADs) serve as a crucial tool in addressing sleep issues for patients in our dental office. These custom-made oral appliances work by gently repositioning the lower jaw forward during sleep, thereby opening the airway and preventing collapse of soft tissues in the throat. By effectively treating conditions such as obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and snoring, MADs not only improve the quality of sleep but also enhance overall health and well-being. Our team is dedicated to providing personalized care, meticulously crafting MADs tailored to each patient’s unique oral anatomy, ensuring maximum comfort and efficacy. With MADs, we empower our patients to achieve restful sleep and wake up rejuvenated, fostering a healthier lifestyle and enhancing their overall quality of life.
