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

Woman sleeping better after sleep apnea treatment in CentrevilleOral appliance therapy at Centreville Dental Wellness Center can help you overcome your sleep disorder. Oral appliance therapy, also called (OAT) involves plastic devices that are worn in the mouth like a retainer. Your sleep apnea mouth guard brings your jaw forward to allow more air into the restricted airway.

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

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.

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.

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 Device?

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.

“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!”

What Our Patients Say

Am I an anxious dental patient? YES!!! BUT, I am so thankful for Centreville Dental Wellness Center. Walking in the front door for an appointment, I am ALWAYS welcomed so warmly by the staff. They have the brightest smiles and emit such positive energy, and it's obvious they enjoy their jobs and each other. So thankful for the dental hygienist who is super encouraging to me, reminds me to breathe and relax my shoulders (even when I'm not even aware how my body is reacting!) I've been forever impacted by Dr. Vakay's technician during dental procedures who has squeezed my hand to give me strength -- such a small gesture but so helpful that I've paid this forward many times for others who are anxious! Dr. Vakay is always supportive, encouraging and emits such strength herself that I believe her and trust her judgment and recommendations. I loved hearing her say at my last visit regarding her job, "it is my joy and my purpose." There is no doubt she is doing what she is called to do! AND with JOY!

Joyce M.

I went to see Dr Vakay to get a dental appliance for my sleep apnea and ended up switching to the office for my routine dental care as well. The whole staff is knowledgeable and friendly and they made me feel very comfortable and valued. I honestly have never received such a thorough cleaning before and my snoring has stopped. Very happy with my experience!

Mary K.

I broke a front tooth crown off at the gum line. Dr. Abel was able to see me within a couple of hours After assessing the damage he presented me with several options for a repair and devised a way to hold a temporary tooth in place. Permanent repair is scheduled. I couldnt be happier with the care I received.

Elaine M.

I just recently moved to Northern Virginia and Centreville Dental Wellness Center was recommended to me and also had great reviews online. My first appointment was 23Jun2023 and everyone from the ladies at the front desk to Dr. Abel and his assistant were outstanding. Thrilled to have found this amazing team!!

Nina A.

Dr Abel, the front desk, hygienist team and everyone in between is At. I have gone to CDWC for years and sometimes travel 2+ hours for a visit. They provide organized, and trustworthy service, but more importantly personable with their care.

J K.

Centreville Dental Wellness was and is an amazing place. I had multiple issues and they were very patient with me. They are very experienced and know their stuff. I love them all particularly Dr Abel who took a lot of time with me and made sure I was straight. I pray that God continues to bless them and their business.

Arlene D.

I highly recommend Centreville Dental Wellness Center! I always have a great, smooth experience here. Dr.s Vakay and Abel are outstanding dentists, professional as well as friendly and approachable. The staff is efficient, welcoming and caring. I've been patient for years and cannot say enough great things about this practice.


WOW! I look amazing!! ; My 2 front teeth were worn and chipped. It affected my smile and confidence. After the restorative (yet gentle) work by the team at Centreville Dental Wellness, I can truly say this practice is second to none! The crowns look so natural and I'm so glad I can smile again!! When my husband asked me what I wanted for Christmas... said "my 2 front teeth" and thanks to the masterful cosmetic work done by Dr. Vacay and her assistant Christina, my Christmas wish came true! Gotta give a shout out to the friendly and supportive front office staff as well, Tonia, Sylvia and Sogand. Merry Christmas to all!!

Anastasia P.

Dr. Vakay and her team are excellent. They are careful, thorough, and attentive to the patient's concerns. They take the time to explain how to maintain healthy teeth and gums. I have always been completely satisfied.

Bruce S.

I've only ever been to one dentist, and don't have any plans to change that! Dr. Vakay, Dr. Abel, and the entire staff at Centreville Dental Wellness Center provide a patient experience that is both timelessly reliable and constantly improving. Recently, I came to them with jaw pain related to TMJ, and after real discussion concerning all my options, they set me up with a kois product that has eliminated the pain and dramatically improved my range of motion. It's been a true success story!

Jake W.

Ok, this is the first review I have EVER written. This morning I had a procedure done by Dr. Vakay with her assistant Christina, that was, without exception, the best experience at a dentist office I have ever encountered. The professionalism and expertise between these two was nothing short of a 'dance." | felt that seamless interaction, put me at ease. The front desk is wonderful to work with. I left another practice in Haymarket because of the way they handled the financial. I have great dental insurance and was told as I was sitting in the chair, that the doctor would not do the procedure unless I gave them a credit card. At which point I demanded to see the doctor and told him I was aghast at his greater interest in getting paid than my teeth and walked out. This is how a dental office should run, and they have hit a very high mark as the daughter of an orthodontist. Bravo Team Centreville Wellness.
