The practice now offers CBCT scans to assess the airways of clients who are experiencing symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea, such as snoring and restless sleep. The technology can inform dentists that further investigation may be required, which can then be carried out in a specialized sleep lab.

In the event that an OSA diagnosis is confirmed, Millennium Smiles offers some of the latest fitted oral appliances, with each product being designed to address a specific cause of OSA. The new FDA-approved appliances offer a more comfortable and adjustable alternative to CPAP devices, which the practice states are difficult to use for some patients.
In addition to snoring and restless sleep, symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea can include excessive daytime fatigue, mood disturbances, difficulty concentrating, and pseudo-ADHD in children. As the condition restricts airflow, the lack of oxygen can lead to chronic health problems, such as heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes.
Millennium Smiles explains that many individuals are unaware that they suffer from OSA, and the clinic’s latest services are designed to increase diagnosis and treatment rates in the wider Frisco region. In doing so, the practice aims to help clients get a more restful sleep, as well as improving overall health and wellbeing.
“Breathing is obstructed by one of four things: nasal obstruction, soft palate collapse, tongue obstruction, or collapse of the airway in the throat,” a clinic representative explained. “Our fitted oral appliance will address your specific needs to help you breathe better at night. A variety of appliances are available, each with a specific design to address a specific problem.”

“When I first moved to Frisco, I was worried I wasn't going to find a good dentist,” one client recently stated. “Fortunately, I walked into Millennium Smiles because of how close it was to my grocery store. I was taken for a tour of the facility, and made up my mind before even ending the tour that I was going to schedule an appointment. The team does an amazing job, and I’m so happy I found them.”
