Dr. Joshua Davis is an experienced sleep dentist in Tuckahoe, NY, with a passion for assisting people who struggle with poor sleep, obstructed breathing, or simply loud snoring. With every client, Dr. Davis and the Metro Sleep team work hard to design dental solutions that tackle their problem areas in the most straightforward and cost-effective way.
Did you know that obstructive sleep apnea can stem from malpositioned teeth and jaws? With over 200 continuing education hours in various dental programs and decades of experience, Dr. Davis specializes in treating disorders by tackling the source instead of merely decreasing its symptoms. He is a graduate of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine’s Mastery program and a current diplomate of the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine, which many consider the gold standard for sleep apnea dentists.
We respect and understand that many people experience dental anxiety. At our sleep office in Westchester county, we do everything we can to ensure an enjoyable and productive experience. By communicating clearly on what to expect during treatment, our team at Metro Dental can alleviate your dental fears.
CPAP machines are the conventional treatment for sleep apnea, but not everyone can tolerate them. Many feel too restricted or claustrophobic because of the mask and tubes. With our oral appliance therapy, you get more comfort and mobility during sleep, with no mouth or nose irritation from constant mask wear.
Unlike CPAP machines that are “one-size-fits-all,” Dr. Davis creates unique dental solutions that perfectly fit the patient’s teeth, jaw, tongue, and airway. This helps eliminate discomfort and maximize the treatment’s effectiveness.
Unwieldy CPAP machines require electricity to run, making them a hassle if you need them on the go. Our dental appliances are portable and lightweight—the perfect treatment for people who frequently travel.
Thanks to their non-invasive nature, our oral appliances don’t cause any physical changes or pain. They are easy to wear, ready to use, and don’t require a recovery period.
Whether you have a health care spending account, dental insurance, or no coverage at all— we have flexible financing and payment options that make it easy to receive the dental care you need. We can also work with your insurance company on your behalf to ensure you receive the most comprehensive coverage possible.
Not everyone makes a good candidate for dental sleep apnea treatments, which is why it’s important to consult with your physician and dentist when considering your treatment options. During your first appointment, Dr. Davis will review your medical and sleep history, perform an airway evaluation, and assess your risk for obstructive sleep apnea.
This is also the perfect time to ask about sleep apnea, how oral appliances work, and other questions or concerns you might have. Dr. Davis will answer your questions so that you are informed, prepared, and comfortable with your treatment options.
After your consultation, we will give you a take-home sleep test that tracks your breathing patterns, oxygen levels, and breathing effort to evaluate your sleep-disordered breathing further. With an at-home study, you’ll be in the comfort of familiar surroundings, which can provide a more accurate reading of your regular sleeping experience instead of conducting tests in a lab.
Do you have a sleep partner who makes a ruckus every night with their sleep apnea snoring? We provide lightweight tongue retainers to subdue snoring from the tongue’s base, chin strips that keep the mouth closed to ensure nasal breathing, and other devices that help create space to reduce sound and disturbance.
Deep, uninterrupted sleep is necessary for your body to heal and rejuvenate itself, and this is our primary goal for every patient. Our team will work with your primary care physician to develop the best treatment plan to support your overall wellness.
We may design a tongue retaining implement, a mandibular advancement device, or a combination of the two to expand the space in your mouth and improve your breathing.
