Pittsburgh Sleep Apnea Dentist

Are You Looking For a Sleep Apnea Treatment?

If you’re located in or near the Pittsburgh area, you’re in luck! There just so happens to be an experienced and highly qualified team of sleep medicine dentists in four areas in and around the Pittsburgh region.

Pittsburgh Dental Sleep Medicine (PDSM) was created by Dr. Robert Rogers, a pioneer in dental sleep medicine. He was founding president of the Sleep Disorders Dental Society, which is now known as the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM). The AADSM was the first ‘national professional society dedicated exclusively to the practice of dental sleep medicine.’ It now has over 3,000 members.

Dr. Rogers has been treating sleep apnea in the Tristate area for over 25 years. He started the Pittsburgh Dental Sleep Medicine Network and now treats sleep apnea out of the main office in Wexford, PA, while also traveling all over the United States giving lectures on sleep apnea and oral appliance therapy. Most recently, he patented a multi design appliance that is used at all PDSM locations. He works with 3 other dentists in the Pittsburgh area who he personally trained in the treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea: Dr. Michael Fazzini, DDS, DABDSM, FAGD, Dr. Christopher Mascio, DMD, and Dana Mascio, DMD.

The Pittsburgh Dental Sleep Medicine Network treats obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) with oral appliances. Oftentimes, oral appliance therapy is a treatment option for OSA sufferers who cannot tolerate cumbersome continuous positive airway pressure CPAP treatment. Oral appliances fit in the mouth like a sports mouth guard, and are custom made. They support the jaw and open the pharynx to keep the airway open during sleep.

The Pittsburgh Dental Sleep Medicine Network has 4 locations in the Pittsburgh area including Wexford, Downtown Pittsburgh, Monroeville and Burgettstown. Make an appointment at any of our locations by calling 724-935-6670.
