The practice has introduced cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans to assist in the diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Following confirmation of the diagnosis in a sleep lab, clients are also now offered a range of highly effective treatment options, including professionally fitted oral appliances.

While Millennium Smiles continues to offer continuous positive airway pressure devices, the practice has noted that some patients find these systems difficult to use. The clinic’s latest oral appliances are designed to treat specific causes of OSA, and their customized nature makes for a more comfortable and reliable treatment than similar off-the-shelf products.
As the name suggests, obstructive sleep apnea occurs when a blockage in the airways makes it more difficult for someone to breathe correctly when they’re sleeping. Symptoms of the condition can include loud snoring, waking up frequently throughout the night, feeling excessively tired during the day, difficulty concentrating, or learning problems and pseudo-ADHD in children.
With the introduction of the latest FDA-approved treatment techniques, Millennium Smiles offers a comfortable and adjustable option for patients in the wider Frisco region. In addition to helping clients return to normal sleep patterns, the clinic states that it aims to prevent several potential health problems.
“Obstructive sleep apnea can have negative effects on your health,” a clinic representative explained. “These include hypertension, heart arrhythmias, or obesity, which can lead to more serious problems in the long term, such as stroke, coronary artery disease, sudden death, diabetes type 2, GERD, and anxiety or depression. Our OSA treatments have helped thousands of people to improve their lives.”

In addition to OSA, Millennium Smiles offers specialist diagnostic and treatment technologies for temporomandibular joint disorders, which can be closely linked to sleep breathing problems. The clinic also offers a wide variety of cosmetic and prosthetic dentistry, along with routine and 24/7 emergency dentistry.
“From the first visit to Millennium Smiles I was impressed, and I’ve continually been impressed ever since,” one client recently stated. “Every staff member has a passion for helping clients receive the best result possible, while also keeping them comfortable and happy. I received a 6-implant overdenture on my lower jaw, and the outcome has surpassed what I originally imagined was possible.”
