She has attended numerous continuing education courses to treat patients with sleep disordered breathing problems such as snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea can be a life threatening problem. It is one of the most undiagnosed and untreated problems in our society today. It can have devastating effects on our cardiovascular system, possibly leading to strokes, heart attacks, and high blood pressure and death. It also directly affects one's quality of life. No one likes to be tired all the time! Most patients have a variety of treatment options when it comes to their apnea problem. Some patients choose surgery, while others choose the CPAP breathing machine. Many patients, however, are not aware of the fact that their sleep apnea may be treated by simply wearing an oral appliance that holds the jaw in a different position that opens the airway! Dr. Romack is one of the only dentists in the area, that has the latest technology to measure one's airway and determine if an oral appliance is the best treatment for you.
Dr. Romack has a special interest in specifically treating young children who may not have room in their mouth for their erupting permanent teeth. By working with children at an early age, our practice can address childhood sleep apnea, snoring, teeth grinding, attention deficit disorder, and breathing difficulties. Dr. Romack also enjoys doing orthodontics on teens and adults. The change in someone's smile from start to finish is very rewarding to both the patient and the doctor.
