We provide snoring and sleep apnea treatment to patients from Fairfax, Chantilly, and the surrounding areas.

The Dangers of Sleep Apnea

Because sleep apnea cuts off the flow of vital oxygen and causes stress on the body, it has been linked to health problems such as:

  • Diabetes.
  • High blood pressure.
  • Heart disease.
  • Liver disease.
  • Headaches.
  • Weight gain.
  • Metabolic syndrome.
  • Adverse reactions to medication.

Plus, sleep deprivation can have serious consequences, such as daytime drowsiness and involuntary sleep—dangerous or fatal when driving or operating heavy machinery. It also causes mood swings and poor mental performance, which can harm personal and work relationships.

Sleep Apnea Treatment in Centreville

Oral appliance therapy with Centreville Dental Wellness Center can help. Oral appliance therapy, also called (OAT) involves plastic devices that are worn in the mouth. Your sleep apnea mouth guard brings your jaw forward to allow more air into the airway.

These appliances help prevent the collapse of the tongue and soft tissues in the back of the throat, keeping the airway open during sleep and promoting adequate air intake.

“I can’t tell you how many years I suffered with a CPAP machine for my sleep apnea. My symptoms of sleep apnea never really went away. With oral appliance therapy from Centreville, I’m finally seeing a reduction of my symptoms and sleeping peacefully at night!”

Dr. Rena Vakay, has extensive training and certification in oral appliance therapy. At the time of your visit, Dr. Vakay can determine which of the appliances are suited for you. Dr. Vakay and her staff will work with your physician on your diagnosis, treatment, and ongoing care.

The first visit will include a review of your sleep study and the prescription from your physician. At that time an evaluation will be done to determine the best oral appliance for you.

Hate Your CPAP?

Although CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machines help some patients, others can’t stand them. They don’t want to try to sleep with a mask on and a noisy machine next to them.

That’s why we offer CPAP alternatives. We can customize a sleep apnea mouth guard that will open your airway, preventing or reducing snoring without using a loud motor or uncomfortable facemask like the CPAP.

Advantages of Having Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT):

  • Stop snoring!
  • Get better sleep!
  • Ditch your CPAP in favor of a small, comfortable appliance.
  • Enjoy improved health all around.

What Our Patients Say

Dr Rena Vakay and her staff are truly the best. I have been going to the practice for many, many years and their professionalism is over the top. Long before Covid Centreville Dental Wellness has been top gold standard with office cleanliness. Dr Vakay is honest, bright, top rated and the best doctor I've had the pleasure of working with. The office is always in front of all the new technology. I can't say enough about this practice.

Kim M.

Dr Vakay is THE very best dentist ever. She is the only dentist who uses preventive dentistry rather than reactive. My teeth have never been in better condition. She measures my gums to be sure there is no change or recession every time. She also does beautiful cosmetic dentistry. I am proof!!!

Annie C.

Dr. Vakay and her assistant Christina are true artists. Their cosmetic dentistry skills are top notch. They made 5 new crowns for my upper front teeth and they look and feel beautiful and healthy. They were a pleasure to work with. When I brought to their attention that the color was a little brighter than I had anticipated, they offered to bleach my bottom teeth a second time (at no cost to me). That's true customer service.

Mary S.

I have been coming to Centreville Dental Wellness for 11 years, first to Dr. Judith Thomas and after she retired, to Dr. Jason Abel. My experience here has always been top notch and the entire office staff are professional and informed. I have had a variety of procedures and the office is good at getting me in on short notice, keeping me apprised of financial costs based on what my insurance will or will not cover, and making what could be a stressful time far less so. I highly recommend this practice across the board.

Louise M.

The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and I have never waited more that 5 minutes to get in and seen by either the hygienist or Dr. Vakay. The teeth cleaning is the best I have ever had hands down! My teeth feel and look amazing after having a cleaning at Centreville Dental Wellness Center.

Colleen M.

Dr. Vakay's office is Very friendly, detailed and efficient with their dental care! Old school patient service that doesn't exist any more . She is a "diamond ", shiny star!

Jason Y.

I have been going to Centreville Wellness for over 20 years. First went there by chance (there was no Yelp at the time), but have continued to go based on quality of work, price and customer service. They have certainly made changes to their practice since I first started going there; all of which were good. Dr. Vakay knows whats going on and how to take care of her patients.

Rob M.

Our family has been going to this dental practice for years, even before Dr. Vakay and Dr. Abel were there. We stayed through the transition because of the wonderful care we received. Everyone of the staff with whom I have interacted have not only been great at their jobs, but cheerful, friendly and kind. I trust both doctors. They combine new technology and treatment with old-fashioned, personal care. I highly recommend the practice.
