Sleep Apnea and Snoring Treatment


  • Do you snore?
  • Is your snoring making your bed partner miserable?
  • Do you wake up feeling as though you are not rested?
  • Do you wake up gasping for air?
  • Do you get a great night’s sleep most nights

Sleep Disordered Breathing is a common and under-diagnosed problem. Sleep apnea is characterized by episodes of little or no breathing during the night. Many patients can stop breathing many times an hour, sometimes as much as once a minute. This constant lack of oxygen during the night leads to many problems including...

  • Excessive daytime sleepiness, fatigue, poor mood, and depression
  • High blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, stroke, and heart disease
  • Shortened lifespan by 8-15 years
  • Auto and workplace accidents

Snoring can be a sign of sleep apnea but not all apneic patients snore nor are all snorers apneic. CPAP machines are quite effective but are poorly tolerated by many patients.

Dr. Pohlhaus has undergone specialized training in the dental management of both snoring and sleep-disordered breathing. Here at the Baltimore Center for Laser Dentistry we offer many services for patients suffering from snoring and sleep apnea.

  • NightLase Snoring Reduction – A non invasive, easily tolerated laser procedure that firms and stabilizes the soft palate
  • Oral Appliancesfor treatment of sleep apnea and snoring. We provide a variety of devices as patients needs vary. Our office is a Medicare Participating Durable Medical Equipment provider.
  • Sleep apnea  Screening - including free home pulse oximetry screening tests – a simple wristwatch device that measures oxygen levels during sleep
  • Pharyngometry and Rhinometry – Advanced imaging devices to measure the size and stability of the nasal and oral airway.

If your screening tests indicate sleep disordered breathing we can refer you directly to a certified sleep center or to your primary care physician.

Sleep Apnea is a serious condition but the good news is it can be treated leading to greater health and quality of life.
